Description

My sweet Grandmother’s recipe for buttermilk waffles.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Buttermilk
  • 2  Eggs, Beaten
  • 5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, melted
  • ½ teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar, If Desired
  • 1-¾ cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt

Preparation

Preheat waffle maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Generously spray the cooking surface with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, butter, vanilla, and brown sugar (if desired) until blended.

In a separate large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Combine the wet and dry ingredients; mix well.

Pour some batter into a preheated prepared waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions or when steam stops.

Makes 4 cups of batter or 5 waffles. If you like them extra crispy, I recommend placing them in the toaster after they have cooled for a few minutes—this will get the outside of the waffle extra crispy! Serve with maple syrup, peanut butter, honey, or fresh fruit preserves.

Notes:
- You can add in additional ingredients into the batter before cooking, such as: 1 cup fresh blueberries, 1/2 cup shredded coconut, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, dash of cinnamon, or whatever you’d like!
- I always spray my waffle iron with cooking spray before cooking each batch, I recommend doing the same.
- These are perfect for freezing for a quick breakfast on those busy mornings. Simply place in toaster to reheat and crisp up!

These look just like the one’s my grandma made. The recipe looks almost the same too! Only she used white sugar instead of brown sugar. Thanks for the memories!

Delicious! I don’t like hard crusts on food and these are perfect, crisp on the outside and nice a tender on the inside.
