Recipe #3 - Waffles


An easy waffle recipe that results in a nice crisp outside, and tender middle waffle. I love the results this gives while not having to separate the eggs and take time to whip egg whites! These will also reheat in the toaster for a quick work day breakfast.

Serves: 6

Ingredients Quantity
all purpose flour 2 cups
sugar 2 tbs
baking powder 2 tsp
salt 1/2 tsp
egg 2
buttermilk 2 cup
melted butter 1/3 cup
baking soda 1 tsp
vanilla extract 1 tsp

Step 1: Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl until evenly combined. Whisk buttermilk and butter together in a separate bowl; add eggs. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just combined and batter is slightly lumpy; add vanilla extract.

Step 2: Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

Step 3: Pour enough batter into the preheated waffle iron to reach 1/2 inch from the edge. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions.
