Buttermilk Waffles

  • Serves

    serves 4

We craved waffles after visiting a maple sap farm in New Hampshire; when it comes to holding syrup, there is no match for the deep grids of a perfectly crisp one.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 12 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp. butter, melted and cooled


Step 1

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a large mixing bowl.

Step 2

Beat egg yolks in a small mixing bowl and add buttermilk and butter. Add to flour mixture, stirring until just combined.

Step 3

Beat egg whites in a medium mixing bowl until stiff and fold into flour mixture. Batter will be airy.

Step 4

Spread batter over three-quarters of the surface of a hot, lightly greased waffle iron, close lid, and cook until brown and crisp, about 5 minutes. Serve with plenty of butter and maple syrup.
