Are you snowed in? We are! We’ve got a fire going, dad’s outside shoveling, I’ve been reading a book by the Christmas Tree and we’re planning on making these waffles that I featured on Tasty Kitchen last week. They are the perfect post-holiday breakfast when we’ve got all morning  to cook and nowhere to be. As I said in my post on Tasty Kitchen, we are P.K.’s (preacher’s kids) so our Christmas morning is never normal and we never have a special breakfast (this year we had coffee cake). So here is our belated Christmas morning breakfast.

Makes 8 waffles

Here’s what you need to make them:
2 whole eggs (separated)
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/3 cups canola oil
For a step-by-step tutorial and more photographs of these delicious waffles, check out my post on the Tasty Kitchen blog.

Recipe by SweetPea Nancy on Tasty Kitchen:

Beat egg whites until stiff. In a separate large bowl, put remaining ingredients and beat on low with a hand mixer until moistened. Increase speed to medium and mix until smooth. By hand, gently fold in beaten egg whites. Pour 1/2 cup of batter onto hot waffle iron. Cook until lightly browned. Serve with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

    Is there anything better than a crisp waffle and a good, strong cup of coffee? Thanks for this recipe, Maggy. I’ve been wanting a waffle recipe with buttermilk, and here it is! Wish I were there with you, chatting over the waffles and coffee!

    I love the new look to the website – so clean and fresh. But I honestly miss the easy print ability. Can you bring that back?

    my trouble is that buttermilk is something i never have in the house, so i rarely make stuff like this. but after all the cooking and baking i did for the holidays, i would have really enjoyed it if someone made me some waffles for breakfast. of course i don’t have a waffle maker either… so that’s a problem.

    I am so glad that you like my waffle recipe. I am just puzzled because in my original recipe that I posted there is only Baking Powder and NO Baking Soda yet in your recipe it calls for baking soda. Why?

      Hey Nancy,

      We like buttermilk in our waffles and so we used a little baking soda to neutralize some of its acidity.

    Do you have a variation for whole wheat? I did a 1-to-1 switch from regular flour and the waffles turned out very dense. I’ve made it in the past with regular flour and loved it.
