“I found this when I was searching for a waffle recipe that would call for a larger quantity of buttermilk than is found in some other recipes I found here. These waffles have a nice twang from the buttermilk. The recipe stated that it makes 12 4-inch Belgian waffles....I got 12 7-8 inch waffles from it. From Gourmet Cookbook.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat waffle iron; put a rack in the middle of your oven and preheat oven to 200°F.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl; add buttermilk, butter and eggs and stir until smooth- batter will be thick.
  3. Brush waffle iron lightly with vegetable oil, if needed, and spoon about 1/2 cup of batter onto waffle iron and spread a little bit; cook according to iron directions.
  4. Transfer waffles to a baking sheet and keep warm, uncovered, in oven.
  5. Serve with butter and maple syrup.
