Buttermilk Waffles from Scratch



Buttermilk in your morning cup of coffee, or your bowl of cereal would be unappetizing ~ but adding it to your waffle batter, takes your waffles from “good” waffles to “great” delicious-airy-fluffy waffles. 




 

Many folks assume that butter is an ingredient in buttermilk; however, that’s far from the truth. Buttermilk in fact, contains no butter, and is lower in fat than sweet milk.

It’s the leftovers of churned butter; the remnants at the bottom of the churn that go toward making delicious baked goods.  Buttermilk has a tangy, slightly sour aroma, along with a slight thickness ~ thicker than regular milk, but not as heavy as cream.

In these waffles, buttermilk adds body, texture, and a special edge to the flavor that is difficult to describe. Try it and you will taste how delicious waffles can be…

From Scratch Buttermilk Waffles

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1¾ cups buttermilk
2 eggs, separated
4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla


Method:

In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
In another bowl, whisk together egg yolks and buttermilk.
Stir in cooled butter and vanilla.
Heat waffle iron and brush lightly with oil.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
Beat the egg whites with whisk or electric mixer until they hold soft peaks.
Fold them gently into batter.
Spread batter on waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. 
Serve immediately or keep warm on an ovenproof plate for a few minutes in a 200 degree oven. 


ENJOY!!!

Dear Pam, Everything is always better from scratch. It is true, so many have the wrong concept of buttermilk. Blessings dearest. Catherine xo

Now you have me craving waffles! These are sure better than the Eggo waffles I am ashamed to say we occasionally eat.

We make waffles often, my whole family loves them plus you can make a lot extra and then just pop them in the toaster on busy school mornings.
