Buttermilk Waffles
From The Fannie Farmer Cookbook (Canada, UK), by Marion Cunningham.

These waffles are appealing because of their slightly tart buttermilk taste, perfect with warm honey.


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups buttermilk
3/4 cups melted butter
1/4 cup milk, if needed

Instructions: Put the flour in a mixing bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Stir well with a fork to blend. In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs until well blended. Stir in the buttermilk and the melted butter (cooled off a little). Add the flour mixture and stir until well mixed. If the batter seems rather thick, add the milk to thin it. The batter should flow from the spoon, not plop. Bake in a hot waffle iron until crisp and golden. Serve hot.

Yield: 6 to 8 waffles
