buttermilk waffles

David is always begging me to make sourdough waffles. I often oblige but it's a lot of work getting the sourdough out the night before, carefully folding in egg whites and so on and so forth. Besides, my recipe always ends up throwing out around 4-5 waffles and that's bad news in our house where portion control reigns. So, I tweaked my sister-in-law's recipe just a bit and these were super! Just the right amount of crispiness (I hate me a soggy waffle) and it made 2 thick belgian waffles - which was exactly all we needed around these parts. Another major bonus was I made almost the entire thing in my Magic Bullet (thanks for the tip, Leone)!

1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat waffle iron. Beat egg until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, baking powder, salt, vanilla and cinnamon just until smooth.

Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour half of the mixture onto the hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown. I serve this with fresh whipped cream and strawberries.

Mmm, these look good! If you like a fluffy, crispy waffle, try the club soda recipe sometime--it's delish! Thanks for all the awesome recipes--I don't thank you enough for the yummy meals you've provided us!

I just found you. Love the simplicity of the blog. (Your wedding dress is also gorgeous!) Going to try out these waffles tonight. Always making new recipes. I have found my perfect recipe, but it involves beating egg whites forever and my kids (and I) just aren't that patient right now.=) bellesbazaar-heather.blogspot.com
