How to Make Delicious Buttermilk Waffles From Scratch

by Sarah Heath

Slightly altered this recipe :


  • 2 Cups Buttermilk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 4 Tablespoons Butter, melted
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • ½ Teaspoons Baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Add buttermilk to bowl.

    Step 2

    If you don't have buttermilk (like me), add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (or white vinegar) to enough milk to make 2 cups. Stir and let sit a few minutes.

    Step 3

    Melt the butter (25 seconds in the microwave).

    Step 4

    Beat 3 eggs

    Step 5

    Stir together the buttermilk, butter, eggs and vanilla.

    Step 6

    Measure dry ingredients. (Run a butter knife over the measuring cup to accurately measure.) Use a whisk to combine.

    Step 7

    Add buttermilk mixture to dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Let sit 5 minutes.

    Step 8

    Preheat waffle iron. Spray with cooking spray.

    Step 9

    Add waffle batter with a ladle. Don't overfill. (I've had it overflow onto the counter 😊)

    Step 10

    Top with butter and maple syrup, strawberries and whipped cream, or whatever you like.

    Step 11

    I freeze extra waffles and warm them in the microwave or toaster for a quick breakfast another day.
