These are basically the best waffles ever.  They came out super fluffy… possibly because of the buttermilk?  And had this really great sweet/tart balance.  Perfect with fresh fruit and whipped cream, and/or syrup.

… Chicken and waffles, anyone?  This was adapted from Emeril’s recipe for fried chicken and buttermilke waffles. (

The goods:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (this is basically the only change I made to the recipe)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • a couple shakes of cinnamon

The method (in my words here; “real” recipes tend to get overly wordy):

  • Preheat your waffle iron.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together.
  • Mix the wet ingredients together.
  • Combine the two and mix well until there are no lumps.
  • Pour batter into waffle iron and cook until golden brown and slightly crispy.

Enjoy! =)
