Buttermilk Waffles

By Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Waffles conjure up images of a lazy afternoon well-spent at a cafe... where I take my own sweet time to eat and watch the world go round. It is also the perfect brunch food, enjoyed with sweet toppings (like an ice-cream) or savoury ones (think bacon and cheese). It is so versatile, and the deep pockets where puddles of maple syrup gather always beckon out to me.

What's not to love about them? Especially when there are so instagram-worthy!

Buttermilk Waffles Recipe
Adapted from Waffles (Sweet, Savory, Simple) by Dawn Yanagihara

250g plain flour
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
480ml buttermilk
85g unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly


Preheat the waffle machine.

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda until well combined. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and buttermilk together. Gradually whisk in the melted butter.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk gently until the batter is evenly moistened. Pour the batter into the centre of the waffle iron.

Use a rubber spatula to distribute it evenly, making sure the waffle iron is fully covered with batter. Cook for 6 mins (subjected to the heat distribution of your waffle machine.. mine took about this time to reach a deep golden brown).

Cool the waffles on a wire rack. Trim the edges with a scissor.

Have fun stacking it into a tower and drizzle with your favourite toppings! Let's go waffling....
