I’ve finally developed a perfectly buttery crisp waffle that is better than any waffle I’ve ordered out.

I have learned that it’s important to get to know your waffle maker. They are all going to cook a bit different, so test out timing with the first one to make sure you get the perfect golden brown color and crispness.

The KitchenAid Waffle Baker is seriously the best waffle maker I’ve ever worked with. I’ve had it for a couple years and forget how much I love it everytime I bring it out. If you are in the market for a new one, I highly recommend this one.

Hope you enjoy my latest recipe!

Buttermilk Waffle Recipe

Let’s get started! Add your dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl.

Pour your melted butter, buttermilk, milk, egg yolks and vanilla into another mixing bowl.

Easy Waffle Recipe

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and give a stir.

Beat your egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold them into the batter until just combined.

Crispy Waffle Recipe

 Be sure to not skip this step. The egg whites keep the waffles perfectly light and crisp.

Scoop 1/2 cup batter into the center of your waffle maker. Close lid and let cook for about 2 1/2 minutes or until golden brown and crisp.

You’ll have crisp yet soft and tender waffles ready for the perfect breakfast or brunch.

If you are crazy like me, drizzle these with my homemade buttermilk syrup. Pretty much the best thing ever. It is one of my favorite recipes in my cookbook. Enjoy friends!

Tips For How To Make The Best Waffle Recipe

*Invest in a good waffle maker. I have really loved having our KitchenAid Waffle Maker. Do I use it every week? No I don’t, however what a treat when I do bring it out.

*To prevent lump free waffle batter, make sure you add the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and not the other way around. The best way to do this is to have all of your dry ingredients whisked together in a bowl and your wet ingredients all whisked together in a separate bowl as I recommend in this recipe.

*Get creative with your waffle toppings. Use your favorite fruit, nuts, sweet candies and even fried chicken! Pretty much anything goes with waffles!
