Big Batch Golden Buttermilk Waffles
I’ve been watching the show Casual on Netflix and if you’ve seen it, you’ll understand why I now have a craving for waffles. This makes a big batch of waffles, perfect for a Spring brunch. If you have malt syrup or powder, adding a tablespoon of that would be awesome but it’s no problem without that ingredient. Not only are these waffles better than Eggos in every way, they freeze better; there’s no freezer burn and they don’t shrivel up) and the batter is perfect for pancakes too.
4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon malt powder, optional
1 ½ -2 cups buttermilk
½ cup melted unsalted butter
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda and malt to blend. Make a well in dry ingredients and add most of the buttermilk, melted butter, vanilla and eggs and stir to make a thick batter, adding in more buttermilk if required (or a touch of flour if too gloppy). Let rest ten minutes.
Using a soup ladle or large measuring cup, make waffles as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Makes 9-12 depending on size
