Buttermilk Waffles

Since the weekend is almost upon us, I think a brunch recipe is in order. Here is my super simple recipe for buttermilk waffles.

I don't make waffles very often at all. When I do I always think "we really need to do these more often because they are amazing!" I think I need to remember that.

Waffles are not a common thing in New Zealand. Cafes here are very big on breakfast menus. Most of these menus, however, don't include waffles. Thankfully, a decent waffle iron can be brought at most electronic and department stores for a very reasonable price.

Strawberries are finally becoming available in supermarkets here now and I am going crazy with them. I topped these buttermilk waffles with strawberries and maple syrup. Delicious.

Buttermilk Waffles

Serves 6

1 1/2 Cups plain flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
120 g (4.2 oz) butter, melted
1/3 Cup sugar
1 1/2 Cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon

To serve:

Chopped fresh strawberries (or any in season fruit)
Maple Syrup

1. Turn your waffle iron on to heat and also preheat your oven to the lowest setting.

2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, butter, buttermilk, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix this gently into the dry ingredients.

3. Make each waffle using about 1/3 cup of batter. Once done, transfer to the oven to keep warm while you cook the rest. 

4. Serve topped with fruit and maple syrup.
