When my husband and I registered for our wedding, he asked only for two things: an XBOX and a waffle maker because he loves waffles. In another effort to use up leftover buttermilk from cupcake baking, I thought I would use it in some waffles. The basis for this recipe comes from the booklet that came with the cuisinart griddler waffle maker. These things are so light and fluffy and fabulous. I made this full recipe and had a few extra waffles which I refrigerated. From the fridge to the toaster, they performed beautifully. And in 24 hours the extra waffles magically disappeared.
1¾ cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
1¾ cups buttermilk
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Do not over mix or they will not turn out so fabulously fluffy.
Preheat your waffle iron as directed on the instructions. Spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray or butter. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes, check the first one to make sure it is done.
