What makes a great breakfast, you ask? Well, waffles of course. We always have busy schedules and there are few days during the week, that we have time to sit with the whole family and enjoy some delicious waffles. But, there are fewer excuses on the weekends. Maple sugar season is coming up and who doesn't love maple syrup I ask. Everyone loves it, especially little fingers who are getting their first taste of fresh maple syrup. Not only that, but our little fingers also enjoyed some yummy waffles. So, I figured this would be a good post for a Sunday morning. Hope you enjoy it.
Before I post the recipe, I just wanted to add that if you don't have buttermilk, don't fret. You can make your own buttermilk in just a couple of minutes with items that you have at home.
Buttermilk Substitute Recipe
You will need:
- just under 1 cup of milk
- 1 tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice
Put 1 tbsp of white vinegar or lemon juice in a measuring cup. Add enough milk to fill it up to 1 cup. Let stand for 5-7 minutes. Use as much as you need for your baking needs.
Simple Buttermilk Waffles
3 cups (750mL) all- purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking soda
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups buttermilk
3 tbsp melted butter
1.) Grease your waffle iron.
2.) Put the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Stir lightly.
3.) In the middle of the flour mixture, crack the eggs and pour the buttermilk and melted butter over them. Stir gently until you have a lumpy batter.
4.) Pour approximately 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter in your hot waffle iron and bake until golden and crisp.
You will get around 10-12 waffles. If you make half the portion you will get around 6-8 waffles.
Yummy yum yum! Enjoy!
P.S. These really are easy to make, so give them a shot. You might need/want to add a little bit more buttermilk than the recipe asks for. Good luck and please let me know if you make them and how they turned out!
