Our Favorite Buttermilk Waffles

I was under the illogical assumption that I had a firm grip on the holiday hustle and bustle.


Can you believe that I actually thought that? Sometimes I wonder about my brain’s capacity for reality…..

I guess I’m not too far behind, though, considering I’ve spent the last two days cleaning, organizing, decorating, and preparing my lists…..I just have a few last minute gifts to pick up tomorrow and then I think I’m all set.

“Think” being the operative word…..

However ……. most importantly, we have our tree. A real tree.

That always makes me happy. Trimming will commence Friday evening, complete with a fabulous repast, cocktails, holiday music, and lots of fun and laughter.

I guarantee it.


Buttermilk Waffles – adapted from Everyday Food

2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
2 tbs. sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 275 degrees; set a rack on a baking sheet, and place in oven. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, and eggs; add flour mixture, and mix very gently until batter is combined.
Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions; spray with nonstick spray. Pour batter onto iron (amount depends on iron size), leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides (spread batter if necessary). Close iron; cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to rack in oven to keep warm; repeat with remaining batter.
