Our family absolutely loves waffles. It’s about the only breakfast item I can get my husband to eat with us on the weekends and it’s my kids go-to choice on the weekdays. Most of the time I do admit to using Trader Joe’s baking mix. It’s fast, simple, and tastes good. But sometimes I get a hankering for homemade waffles.
This recipe is easy and I usually have most of the ingredients on hand. When I don’t have buttermilk I simply add some apple cider vinegar to milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I give it a good stir and than use it as I would buttermilk.
Since our family of four still can’t eat a whole batch I make up everything and freeze the extras for a quick breakfast I can pop in the toaster for the kids. It’s simple and costs less than purchasing the frozen waffles at the store.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup whole-wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 eggs, slightly beaten
- 2 ounces unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 2 cups buttermilk, room temperature
- Plug in your waffle iron and let it heat up.
- In a medium bowl mix together the dry ingredients with a whisk. In a separate bowl mix the beaten eggs, buttermilk and melted butter.
- Pour wet mixture over dry mixture and stir with whisk until just combined. If your waffle iron isn’t seasoned and needs it, spray the hot iron wiht a little cooking spray.
- Ladle on about ½ – ¾ cup of the batter (or whatever the manufacture recomments) and close the waffle iron. Cook until the waffle is golden brown on each side and comes up easily.
- Serve and enjoy!
