  • Waffle iron
  • Large mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • Fork or spatula


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray or additional melted butter for greasing the waffle iron


  • Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
    2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs and then add the buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until the wet ingredients are well combined.
    2 large eggs, 2 cups buttermilk, 1/4 cup unsalted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and gently stir until just combined. It's okay if there are a few lumps; overmixing can make the waffles less tender.
  • Lightly grease the preheated waffle iron with cooking spray or melted butter.

  • Pour the appropriate amount of waffle batter onto the center of the waffle iron, following the manufacturer's guidelines (usually about 1/2 to 2/3 cup of batter per waffle). Close the waffle iron and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp, typically for 5-7 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the waffles from the iron using a fork or spatula and place them on serving plates. Keep the waffles warm by covering them with a kitchen towel while you cook the remaining batches.
  • Serve the buttermilk waffles with your choice of toppings, such as maple syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream, or a dusting of powdered sugar.


  • These classic buttermilk waffles are a timeless breakfast favorite, perfect for a delicious morning treat.
  • Customize your waffles with a variety of toppings and flavor additions, such as chocolate chips, sliced bananas, or chopped nuts.
  • Leftover waffles can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer. Reheat them in a toaster or oven for a quick and convenient breakfast.
