My partner this month is Carol from No Reason Needed. I know I can always find a delicious recipe on her blog, and this month was no exception. I was drawn to her Buttermilk Spice Muffins, but then. Then, immediately below the muffins on the list, were these Buttermilk Waffles!
I didn't change a thing, although I did follow the 1/2 oil, 1/2 butter suggestion, so I'll list that as I made them. The recipe is originally from Swanky Paper, and I'm so glad Carol found it and tried it.
This recipe will be one we return to. It's so easy to whip up and the waffles are light, fluffy, crispy and delicious!
Makes about 11 waffles
4 eggs, beaten until light
2 cups buttermilk (2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar, plus enough milk to make 2 cups)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
Whisk eggs until light, then add buttermilk and oil. Whisk in butter. Add flour, salt, baking soda and powder, mix well. Pour into a waffle maker. Cook until golden brown. Serve with butter, maple syrup, and your favorite toppings.
