It’s become a tradition in our home that on Sunday mornings I make homemade waffles. Every week my husband is sure to ask if we have enough buttermilk in the fridge in anticipation for our Sunday morning waffles. I have tried a number of waffle recipes and these from Martha Stewart are by far our favorite.
I usually halve the recipe below, and in my round Bella Rotating waffle maker (which I absolutely love) the half recipe makes two big fluffy waffles.
2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1/2 cup (1 stick) salted butter, melted
2 large eggs
Spray Olive Oil for waffle iron
Preheat oven to 275 degrees; set a rack on a baking sheet, and place in oven.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, and eggs; add flour mixture, and mix just until batter is combined.
For the fluffiest waffles, don’t overmix — there should still be some lumps.
Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions; brush with oil.
Pour batter onto iron (amount depends on iron size, I use a 1/4 cup per waffle section), leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides (spread batter if necessary).
Close iron; cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
Transfer to rack in oven to keep warm; repeat with remaining batter.

… and I just couldn’t post about these waffles without mentioning one other thing. Before you drench them in ooey gooey table syrup, take a look at the ingredients. Does yours have Sodium Benzoate in it? Sodium Benzoate is a commonly found preservative…. and yet it is a known carcinogen.
I admit that I am not as good as I would like to be about eating organically, however some of the ingredients that are allowed in our food is just disgusting. This is a big one to avoid. Log Cabin has a new all-natural syrup that tastes much like the typical table syrup we’re used too, or better yet opt for honey or pure maple! Off my soapbox now.
