These were a great addition to our New Year’s morning brunch. They are crispy and buttery with just a hint of vanilla…so good!
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (shake before pouring into measuring cup)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat waffle iron.
Melt the stick of butter in a heat-proof measuring cup. Set aside to cool. You might even want to stick it in the freezer of refrigerator to speed up the cooling process.
In a large batter bowl, measure out the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt, stirring well to combine ingredients. Create a depression in the center of the dry ingredients for the buttermilk mixture.
Beat the eggs in a medium-sized mixing bowl until frothy and well-combined. Add the vanilla extract, buttermilk and cooled butter. Beat until well-combined.
Pour the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredient’s depression and stir rapidly with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Using the wooden spoon, push 1/4 to 1/5 of the batter onto your waffle iron and bake until steam stops rising from the waffle iron or your personal degree of doneness is achieved.
What did the family think? Thumbs up!
