Rich Buttermilk Waffles
35 mins (prep 30, cooking 5)
10 ingredients
4 servings
So often, when you find a recipe, you wonder if the poster has actually made it. I can say that I've been eating these waffles for over 52 years--that's half a century of enjoyment! :) Every Sunday was Waffle Day and we never tired of it; it was a tradition that we loved to honour. First my Grandpa made these, then my Mum, and now I make them for my own family. This is a very, very thick batter. I use a wooden spoon to push it out of the batter bowl onto the hot waffle iron. It makes 4 old-fashioned waffles that are 4 squares; I don't know how many Belgian-style waffles it would make. This does NOT store well because of the rising reaction between the buttermilk and leavening so use up all the batter and freeze any extra waffles to enjoy later in the week. From my Home to Yours: I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have these five decades!
