Crispy and Light Buttermilk Waffles

 
Waffles has always been an all-time favorite for Meh bear (my 15-yr old) and even though the batter is very similar to pancakes, the magic of cooking them in a waffle maker just set them apart. Not to mention the deep golden crispy edges that you could never achieve by cooking them in a pan.

Ever since Tiger got me a 5-in-1 griddler that comes with waffle plates for my birthday, we have been making these crisp and fluffy waffles religiously for our weekly Sunday brunch.

My Cuisinart 5-in-1 griddler.

When I came across this Crispy and Light Buttermilk Waffles recipe by The Pioneer Woman, I immediately recognize it is going to be a keeper. The combination of buttermilk, whipped egg whites is totally necessary when it comes to achieving a light and crispy mouthfeel. If you are looking for the dense and chewy kind of waffles, this is not it.

Thanks to the innovative minds of the younger generation, meh bear also suggested I could include chocolate chips, blueberries or even raisins to the batter.

 

Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1-1/2 cup butter milk (click here for substitute)
2 whole egg yolks
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon (additional) Vanilla Extract
1 stick (1/2 Cup) Salted Butter, Melted
4 whole Egg Whites

Makes 16 waffles
