Buttermilk Waffles

Everyone needs a good basic waffle recipe on hand for Sunday mornings.  Buttermilk waffles, the epitome of breakfast indulgence, owe their magic to a tangy, creamy secret: buttermilk. This acidic marvel not only imparts a subtle tang but also tenderizes the batter, resulting in irresistibly light and fluffy waffles.

Buttermilk’s Brilliance

The acidity in buttermilk activates baking soda, giving the waffles a remarkable rise and a tender crumb. Its unique flavor profile lends a delightful zing that perfectly balances the sweetness.

Swap out traditional syrup for this wholesome fruit and yogurt (or skyr) topping. The combination offers a delightful contrast of textures and flavors, turning your morning into a celebration of freshness.  A dollop of creamy yogurt and a colorful medley of fresh fruits such as bananas, strawberries, and raspberries create a natural sweetness and a burst of antioxidants.
