You are going to want these waffles for breakfast. If you already ate breakfast you’re going to want to eat it again, or even better you’re going to want waffles for dinner. Personally I love breakfast for dinner so I say heat up the waffle maker and get the maple syrup out.
For many years my life was empty without a waffle maker. I added it to my cart on Amazon so many times but somehow talked myself out of buying it. I would see waffle recipe posts on all your lovely blogs and I would leave comments in shame, kicking myself for not buying that waffle maker. But on my birthday this year I woke up to a candle in the middle of a pile of waffles at our table. I shouted “Waffles!”. Then it hit me, not only did Matthew make waffles for my birthday breakfast but they came from a waffle maker. I got a waffle maker, my world was happy again.
Since getting a waffle maker a few weeks ago we have made these fluffy buttermilk waffles so many times. We both declared them the best waffles ever so we don’t even want to try another recipe. They are extremely fluffy thanks to the buttermilk. We love them so much I have been making big batches of them to freeze. Waffles freeze beautifully which means you can make a bunch at once, and then just heat them up for 1 minute when you’re groggy in the morning. Waffles, you rule.
How do you eat your waffles? A little maple syrup with a sprinkle of powdered sugar is the way I go.
All this waffle talk sure left me hungry. I hope you have them for breakfast (or dinner) soon!
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 6 tablespoons butter - melted
- 2 eggs
- In a bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Stir in buttermilk, melted butter and eggs. Stir until mixed completely. Your batter will appear thin but this is what we want.
- Pour 2/3 cup of batter into the middle of your waffle maker once heated.
- Close lid and cook 5-6 minutes or until golden brown.
- Makes 4-5 pancakes.
- To freeze: Put in freezer bag. I like to put wax paper in between each waffle so they don't freeze together. When ready to eat, just take out of the freezer and put in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
