The Best Waffles Ever!

The best waffles ever are in the King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook - this book is chock full of great bread recipes, but my favorite pancakes/waffles are in the early part of the book. The recipe makes a large quantity, but halving it, which I do all the time, easily feeds four people.

Here it is (already halved for you):

2 cups King Arthur (naturally) Unbleached all-purpose flour
2 T sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/4 stick butter, melted

  • Mix the dry ingredients together thoroughly
  • In another bowl, beat the buttermilk and eggs together until light
  • Add the melted butter
  • Blend only until the dry ingredients are mixed in - only 20 seconds or so
Cook on a preheated waffle griddle (or pancake griddle if you are making pancakes).

I use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to put the batter on the griddle for each waffle.

My well-used (and thus not lovely) waffle baker with the batter on it.
