How To Make delicious buttermilk waffles

Test Kitchen Tips
We found the batter was a touch thick. We added 1/4 c more buttermilk to the batter. This can easily be adjusted to taste.
  • Whisk dry ingredients.
    Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
    Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted butter. Stir well.
  • Adjust thickness of batter.
    If the batter seems too thick or thin, adjust with buttermilk and/or flour.
  • Pour batter into a waffle iron and cook.
    Pour into a preheated waffle iron. Cook until crisp and golden.
