  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Spray waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray or brush with oil.
  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Beat eggs in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Stir flour mixture into eggs, one third at a time, alternating with buttermilk, until just combined; stir in butter.
  4. Pour batter into preheated waffle iron; cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Easy light and great flavor. The only change I made was using a 1/2 cup of melted butter instead of one cup. There were no leftovers.

Not a good recipe. Waffles are VERY flat. Not sure if it's because of too much butter or what. Followed the recipe exactly without changes. Will not use this one again.

These were THE best waffles I've had. Followed the recipe exactly and everyone loved them. Froze the leftovers and reheated in the toaster oven and they were still very good. Excellent recipe!
