Buttermilk Belgian Waffles

These Buttermilk Belgian Waffles are crisp on the outside and light and airy in the middle. You can have fun and add any topping you like! I choose chocolate chips and maple surup. On my belgian waffle maker, this recipe makes about 8 waffles. If this recipe is too big of a batch for you, you can easily cut the recipe in half. The leftover cooked waffles store great in the freezer and can be reheated in a toaster oven. 

Servings: 8


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat waffle iron.

Put all dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together till combined.

Slowly add butter milk to cooled melted butter. Stir to slighlt combine and then whisk slightly beaten eggs and vanilla into wet mixture. 

Slowly add wet mixture to dry mixture and combine.

Pour batter onto the middle of the waffle iron. (The batter is going to spread once the waffle iron is closed so leave about a 1/2 inch on each side or the excess may spill out of the waffle iron. If that does happen wait till the waffle is fully cooked and when you open the waffle iron just trim off the portion that dripped and disposed of it. Uncooked batter can make you sick.)

Cook waffles according to manufacture’s suggested instruction.

If you want extra flavor, you can also add fruit or chocolate chips to your waffle mixture. I just sprinkle the chosen topping on top of the batter once it is on the waffle iron. This a good idea if you want to make a bunch of different flavors.

Once the waffle is cooked you can add maple syrup, chocolate syrup, whip cream, butter or what ever toppings your heart desires!

You can store any left over cooked waffles in a plastic freezer bag. You can freeze them for a month. When you want a yummy waffle just put it in the toaster oven for a few minutes and enjoy!
