Excellent recipe! I also used two bowl method :)
I made this recipe on mothers day 2020 They were delicious. Only thing I added was a half teaspoon of vanilla. I add vanilla in my pancakes also, since I like the depth it adds. I would give this recipe a five star rating.
Me too! Everyone loved them
The recipe was easy to do and my waffles turn out beautiful I will love to make the waffles again and they taste good with applesauce and blueberry good for breakfast. Could I also add vanilla flavoring to the buttermilk waffle recipe.
Glad you liked these! Yes, you may add a teaspoon of vanilla to the waffle batter.
Can I substitute the unsalted butter for oil (e.g. vegetable oil)?
Yes, B, you sure can use oil instead of butter.
I followed the recipe to the T and it was amazing!! This will be my go-to waffle recipe from now on.
Rookie mistake: Added refrigerated buttermilk to melted (room temperature) butter! Wasn’t fun working with hardened butter but it was alright. For next time, I’ll use less of baking powder to achieve crunchiness. Otherwise, family enjoyed it.
Yes, it’s a good idea to let the melted butter cool before you add it to the liquid. If that happens again, you can whir the batter in a blender (if you feel like bothering). Happy waffling!
microwave 15-30 seconds on the buttermilk.
I had some butter milk to get rid of so I figured I’d try my hand at waffles. First time making from scratch and as I “labored” over the 2-bowl method I was thinking how much easier the box mix variety is. OMG! So worth it! They were really good. The rest are in the freezer and I am set for a good while! I don’t usually have buttermilk so next time will make my own “buttermilk” and try the half buttermilk/half milk.
This is my new go-to waffle recipe. I did substitute margarine for butter and reduce to 3 T., using coconut oil spray for the waffle iron. It made 10-6 3/4 “ waffles in my round machine. The tip to crisp is a low oven is a keeper too!
Simply lovely! But I would really like to have the nutritional information per serving/waffle.

don’t you put vanilla in recipe?
Nope, no vanilla. But you may add a teaspoon if you like. Sometimes I think you get more flavor in the maple syrup when you skip the vanilla, but it’s just a personal preference thing.
I go for the vanilla every time. Sorry Sara. If I leave it out my love always comments and that is not the quest for a breakfast made for she who has put up with me.
I did not follow the recipe to a T, I added spice to mine, is came out just right. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Love it.
I used the 2 bowl method, easy to make & taste great
Great. Came out crispy and not doughy. Worth the trouble. I used a scoop and leveled off the flour and I have no idea why someone said that was a problem.
I had high hopes for this recipe because it has such good reviews, but I won’t be making it again. The directions really needed to state how the flour was measured. I always assume it’s measured by gently pouring the flour into the measuring cup with a scoop and levelling it off, since that’s how I learned to do it – it was only after adding the wet ingredients and ending up with a runny batter that I realized I needed to scoop the flour with the measuring cup itself. This is a massive oversight.
The flavour was unfortunately lacking. Even with lots of maple syrup, it tasted like a floury omelette. I’d consider making these again with more sugar and butter and some vanilla extract if I thought I could stomach it, but I just can’t. I had to brush my teeth to get the taste out.
Hi, Louise. I’m so sorry you didn’t like this recipe. You are correct, how much flour can make a difference. I know when I make batter, I often adjust it a little one way or the other to get to a consistency I prefer. You might like this recipe for Yeasted Belgian Waffles better. All of the dry ingredients are weighed as well so you get the exact amount you need every time.
Can you do 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all purpose?
Hi, Martha! We didn’t test it that way, but Waffles are easy to adapt. I’m sure they would be delicious made with half whole wheat and half all purpose. If you try it, please let us know how it turns out!
Simply the best! Two bowls, one cup rye flour, yummy!
Made them with gluten free flour, no other changes and the picky eaters loved them!
Instant Classic in our home!!My daughters just kept coming back for more any more.Mixed dry ingredients separately than the wet ingredients, then together. Also kept warm in one as suggested.Just the perfect recipe mixture!!
Want to make this for a big family breakfast(like 20 people). I know you said you can keep them in the oven at 250 degrees. Do you keep it on a rack, a cookie sheet or just the actual oven rack?
Hi, Christina! It’s in step 1 of the recipe — I like to put a wire cooling rack inside a baking sheet but you can also just put the waffles directly on an oven rack if you prefer. (Just make sure the oven rack is clean!)
I left a comment and forgot to rate it lol!
