“Buttermilk” Waffles

Before sitting down for a long “fun-filled” day of studying husband and I decided to make an awesome breakfast.  He was in charge of the eggs, bacon and sausage, whIle I took care of the waffles!

We got a new handy-dandy waffle maker on black friday from Target.  20 bucks!! It’s pretty great. It was one of many great deals we got that night!

These waffles turned out delicious! I didn’t actually have buttermilk so I had to make some substitutions.  Apparently 1 cup of milk + 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar = 1 cup of buttermilk.  So I went for it, and it worked!  I got the original recipe from food.com.  It made 8 waffles.  Although the first time we filled the waffle machine up, we had a minor explosion when we closed the lid.  (Over-filled, oops!) Lesson learned.  So I think that this recipe would’ve actually made more had we been a little smarter than the machine.  🙂



  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 cups of buttermilk (2 cups of milk + 2 tablespoons of lemon juice)
  • 4 tablespoons of butter (or margarine, melted)


1. In a mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, and soda; stir to mix

2. Add in eggs, buttermilk, and butter; mix well.

3. Pour batter into a preheated prepared waffle iron; cook until steaming stops and waffles are crisp and golden.
