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."

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

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

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.

Great way to use kefir. Super easy and took 2 minutes each in the waffle iron. Maybe other waffle recipes are richer but they take about twice as long to cook. I whipped a double batch up and fed a family of 9 with minimal time standing in front of the waffle iron. Added a little more sugar and doubled the vanilla.

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.

The waffles were delicate, but they had a noticeable aftertaste of soda and baking powder. And the half a teaspoon of salt was far too much for me, but that's just my taste ;) I might try buttermilk with waffles again, but with beaten whites instead of rising agents - or with just a little baking powder.

Need to whip the egg whites separately in order to get nice fluffy waffles from this recipe. Even then my waffle maker was unable to cook the waffles all the way through.
