“YES!!!” was the answer I received to this question, from all three boys, almost in unison.
We had some milder temps here yesterday, accompanied by some freezing rain. The result? Our schools were on a two-hour delay. That means the bus doesn’t pick the kids up until 9! Just enough time to prepare them a tastier breakfast than the normal cereal, yogurt or oatmeal.
I don’t know about you but I love cooking with buttermilk. Pancakes, bread, biscuits, and even cake, all taste amazing with buttermilk as an ingredient!
One thing that I think everyone should have in their recipe stash, is a tasty take on buttermilk waffles. So to help you with that, I’ve decided to take this opportunity to share my recipe with you.
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 stick of butter, melted (or 1/2 oil, in a pinch)
- 1 3/4 cups of buttermilk
- 1 Tablespoon of packed brown sugar
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- optional ingredients – 3/4 tsp vanilla or maple extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Beat eggs, then add the remainder of the ingredients. Stir until it’s just smooth. Don’t over do it!
Pour prepared batter onto a preheated waffle iron. If you would like to (and who wouldn’t) sprinkle some mini chocolate chips onto the batter before closing the iron, or even some chopped nuts. Or blueberries….
I have a 6 inch Belgian waffle iron. A single batch of this recipe makes approximately four for us. I normally make a double or triple batch. Then the kids reheat the leftovers in the toaster to have for breakfast throughout the week!
If you’ve never make a recipe with buttermilk, I think you should give it a try. It definitely adds to the flavor and texture of whatever you make. A great benefit of buttermilk is even after it is opened, it still keeps for a good while. Just close that lid up tight!
