Tender and Easy Buttermilk Waffles


These buttermilk waffles are crisp on the outside and tender in the middle. I love the results this gives while not having to separate the eggs and take time to whip egg whites! These will also reheat in the toaster for a quick workday breakfast.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 cups low-fat buttermilk

  • cup melted butter

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl until evenly combined.

  2. Whisk buttermilk and melted butter together in a separate bowl; whisk in eggs. Stir buttermilk mixture into flour mixture until just combined and batter is slightly lumpy; stir in vanilla extract.

  3. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.

  4. To cook each waffle, pour enough batter into the preheated waffle iron to reach 1/2 inch from the edge. Cook according to manufacturer's instructions.


You can heat the oven to about 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C), and place a rack on a baking sheet to keep waffles warm as you make the whole batch.
