Classic Buttermilk Waffles

Our family has been binge eating waffles almost as much as we’ve been binge watching classic TV series during the stay at home Covid-19 lockdown. Who can resist that buttery, syrupy goodness?




The great thing about a really good classic waffle recipe is that you can enjoy them in all of their plain classic glory or you can fruit or nuts based on what each person in the family wants. When I want pecan waffles, my daughter wants blueberry waffles, & my husband wants plain waffles, I can make all three of us happy with one batch of batter! After I put the batter on the griddle for my daughter’s waffle, I sprinkle on blueberries before I close the lid. For mine, I do the same only with pecans.

The amount of waffles that this recipe makes will depend on the size & type of waffle maker being used, but it yields about 3 cups of batter.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk*
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • cooking spray



  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Beat eggs & combine with the remaining ingredients, except for the cooking spray, in a separate bowl.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients & mix well, making sure that all of the dry ingredients are well incorporated into the wet ingredients. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. While the batter is resting, turn on your waffle maker to the setting or temperature recommended by the manufacturer.
  5. Once the batter has rested & the waffle maker is ready, spray the griddle & pour the amount of batter recommended by the manufacturer. Cook according the manufacturer’s instructions.


*If using plain milk instead of buttermilk, reduce amount to 1 3/4 cups.
