  • Cooking Spray
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

  1. Preheat waffle maker. Spray generously with nonstick cooking spray or generously grease with butter.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter, vanilla, and sugar until blended. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

Recipe Notes

You can add in additional ingredients such as: 1 cup fresh blueberries, 1/2 cup coconut, 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, dash of cinnamon, or whatever you'd like.

I always spray my waffle iron with cooking spray before cooking each batch, I recommend doing the same.
