Buttermilk Belgian Waffles 

Hi, it’s been a while!

No excuses, just the regular busy school/work life. As Autumn settles in, I have been getting busier in the kitchen, much to my boyfriend’s enjoyment – and my own. I promise to continue posting, so see you soon!

Anyway, I’ve made some buttermilk waffles this morning. My mother gave me her old Sunbeam waffle maker and breakfast has never been easier.

BUTTERMILK BELGIAN WAFFLES

PREP TIME: 5 minutes
ACTIVE TIME: 10 to 15 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 15 to 20 minute
SERVES: 2, but can easily be doubled or tripled for your family

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 free range egg

METHOD:

1. Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk together dry mixture of flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.

2. In a smaller mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and melted butter. Then, add to dry mixture and mix until just combined.

3. Spoon a rounded 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle mold of your heated waffle maker. Cook waffles according to your waffle maker’s manual until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes (I like mine with a bit of crunch so I let them cook a touch longer). Transfer to plate or heated oven to keep warm. Make more waffles with the rest of the batter in the same manner.

4. Top with your desired toppings. Today I just did the classic butter, Canadian maple syrup, and icing sugar. However, adding berries, banana, or even bacon would be delicious. Enjoy!
