Buttermilk waffles

I've only made waffles one other time, but I have to say, my parents, older-than-me, waffle iron is awesome! The waffles make an excellent change up to our breakfast routine. This recipe makes a TON of waffles-like 20-24 and that's no exaggeration. So definitely think about cutting this in half unless you're making them for a lot of people.

Total time: 20 minutes
Makes 20-24 waffles

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 cups lowfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
Lightly coat your waffle maker with cooking spray and preheat to desired setting.

Put the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix the dry ingredients to sift.

In two other large bowls, separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Put the buttermilk, milk, vanilla and melted butter in with the egg yolks and mix well. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined.

Whip the egg whites with a mixer approximately 2 minutes until firm peaks form. Carefully incorporate egg whites into the batter, being careful not to over mix.

Pour the batter into your waffle maker and cook to desired doneness.
