Your next free morning, linger over these sweet cornmeal waffles made with buttermilk.
I got my first waffle iron as a wedding shower gift 19 years ago. It quit a few months back and I rushed out immediately to buy a new one. I know that for many the waffle iron is an item that lives in the far back of the cabinet, never to actually make it to see the light of day. For me, it is one of the kitchen tools I use the most.
I love making waffles, they take minutes to whip up and my family loves them. Check out my other waffle recipes here.
Cornmeal WafflesHeather Kinnaird
- 1 cup AP flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal

- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tbsp butter melted

- preheat your waffle iron (spray with non-stick spray if needed)
- in a large bowl whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt
- in another bowl whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, butter, and vanilla
- pour wet ingredients over the dry and whisk just until combined
- pour batter in the center of iron (amount will depend on type and size of iron), close, and cook (my iron takes about 3 minutes) until golden and crisp
