Fluffy Buttermilk Waffles
Like you, we often have waffles as a special breakfast or brunch entrée, I have to tell you, we’ve come to love them just as much for dessert. When serving them for dessert, I like serving with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar, whipped cream, and homemade chocolate fudge sauce with berries. They’re also spectacular served topped with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of bourbon praline pecan sauce. So consider setting up a dessert waffle bar for a fun family or entertaining option using waffles.
Helpful Tips for Making Waffles
- Depending on the waffle iron you have, they can be made into any shape you like. Should you choose to use a larger waffle iron, the yield may vary.
- Whipping the egg white separately adds an airiness to the batter.
- These waffles can be made, cooled and frozen then reheated from frozen in a toaster or on sheet pan in the oven.
- This recipe easily doubles if you’re feeding a hungry crowd.
- If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, make your own. Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice or white distilled vinegar to each cup of milk called for. Let stand on the counter for 5 minutes, then proceed with the recipe.

Helpful Kitchen Items:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- ⅓ cup granulated sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 cups buttermilk (well shaken, not fat free)
- 6 Tbsp salted butter melted and slightly cooled
- 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- 4 large eggs separated
- ½ tsp cream of tarter
- maple syrup, jam, butter and assorted fresh fruit for serving
In a large mixing bowl, use a whisk to sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg yolks, butter and vanilla. Add to dry ingredients mixing just until fully moistened.
Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into batter. Batter will be lumpy.
Spray both sides of the preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. Pour in enough batter to lightly cover the surface of the iron, about ½ to ¾ cup, depending on size.
Close iron cooking until waffles have crisp and golden exteriors, about 5 minutes or according to manufacturer recommendation.
Cook waffles in batches. Repeat spraying the waffle iron with cooking spray as needed. Keep waffles warm between batches in a 200°F oven in a single layer on a sheet pan, until serving.
Serve immediately with butter, drizzled with syrup or with jam and fresh berries.
