Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Baking powder +Salt
  • Buttermilk
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla

No Buttermilk on Hand? Add 2 tablespoons of white vinegar or lemon juice into 1 cup of milk. Give it a light stir and let it sit 5 minutes before adding to the batter.

A few notes:

  • Don’t over mix your waffle batter. Just be sure everything is combined and no dry spots are left in the batter.
  • Your batter may also thicken a bit as it sits. If it’s too thick, thin it out with a tablespoon of water.
  • When cooling the waffles, place them on a wire rack. This will help them retain their crispiness.

Storage: These waffles freeze great! Store leftovers in a freezer safe covered container or storage bag. Then, reheat in your toaster or toaster oven when you are ready to eat. I don’t recommend microwaving leftovers, they will lose their crisp.

Serve these up with a batch of Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup. 🍁
