I prefer the taste of waffles made with buttermilk, so I have included both recipes. The methods are the same.


  • Buttermilk waffles
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 100 grams butter, melted
  • Plain waffles
  • 2 cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 100 grams butter, melted


  1. Sift the flour, salt, baking powder, soda (for buttermilk waffle) and sugar into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
  2. Separate the eggs and mix yolks, butter and milk or buttermilk together.
  3. Pour liquid ingredients into well and quickly mix together without beating.
  4. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter.
  5. Heat a waffle iron and cook ½ a cup-ful of mixture at a time. If you don't have a waffle iron, use a frying pan and make large circles using ½ cup batter. Cook as a pancake.
  6. Serve with your favourite toppings.

Cooks Tips

- If you are wishing to make savoury waffles, omit the sugar - Serve waffles with one of the following toppings: bananas and maple syrup or chocolate, bacon and golden syrup, sliced cold tomato with ham and piccalilli, slices of roast beef, lettuce, avocado and mustard sauce, apricto jam with smoked or roasted chicken and cheese, melted Edam cheese with prunes and crispy bacon, yoghurt and freshly poached fruit, such as rhubarb with orange and pear with cardamon, or apples and ginger.
