Tender and Easy Buttermilk Waffles

Recipe by  

"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."

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can heat the oven to about 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C), and place a rack on a baking sheet to keep waffles warm as you make the whole batch.

Bulk making waffle day--I doubled the recipe. I only made one change, I used half whole wheat/half AP flour. After all the dry ingredients were folded into the wet, I noticed that the batter seemed to be quite thin. I ended up adding an additional cup of AP flour. These puffed up nicely and turned out well. Using half whole wheat flour made them sturdier and more filling. I will use this recipe again.

We like the look but the flavor was bland for us.

The buttermilk really yields a very nice waffle. Definitely will be making again.

Easy and yummy! Had leftover buttermilk, so I figured, make waffles! Followed the recipe exact. They came out perfect! Made them on waffle plates on my Forman Grill. Smelled so good! Made 8 waffles. My boy's loved them. Will definitely make again.

I have to admit that these waffles turned out perfectly, whether you like them softer or crispy. Doubled the recipe for four people allowed for no leftovers in my house!

So I was looking for the absolute easiest recipe that looked yummy. This was tender. This was easy. The only thing I changed was the recipe calls for low fat buttermilk and I don't low fat anything, especially if butter is involved. Yes, I burned the first pour but it was my first attempt with my Nordic ware waffler and I didn't trust my instinct/nose. Luckily, the batch yields 6 servings so the second pour (4 more waffles) came out perfect. (Kept a closer eye and trusted my nose.) I am so happy. I love buttermilk waffles and so does my special someone so now I get to add this to things I won't burn.

Very nice. I used half whole wheat flour, and still came out great.
