Best Buttermilk Waffle Recipe | All-American Recipes

Happy Mother’s Day! 💐👩‍👧Buttermilk Waffles.
This was my mom’s request so had to make them. This is my go-to waffle recipe I’ll share with you- since it’s not really mine! If you don’t have buttermilk not to worry you can make it in a few minutes with some milk and lemon juice or white wine vinegar.
It’s the first secret to making the softest, tastiest waffles. The second secret is whipping the egg whites. This does take a few extra steps but it’s worth it. I also use 3 bowls for the best result. Special occasion kind of food 🙂


Best Buttermilk Waffles (@allclad recipe)

Serves 8-10


—3 eggs, separated
—1 ¾ cups (430ml) buttermilk (or milk with 2 T lemon juice or vinegar mixed in)
—8 Tbsp (125g) or 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
—½ tsp. Vanilla extract
—1 ¾ cups (280g) all-purpose flour
—1 ½ tsp. Baking powder
—1 tsp. Baking soda
—½ tsp salt
—⅓  cup (90g) sugar
—Maple syrup, fruit, or jam for serving


1. First make buttermilk in measuring cup if needed. Set aside a few minutes.

2. In one bowl mix all the dry ingredients with a whisk to distribute evenly.

3. In bowl #2 mix the melted butter, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3 egg yolks and the  1 3/4 cups buttermilk. Put the egg whites in bowl #3.

4. Then pour the egg yolk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk briefly. They are:
—1 ¾ cups (280g) all-purpose flour,
—1 ½ tsp. Baking powder
—1 tsp. Baking soda
—½ tsp salt
—⅓  cup (90g) sugar

5. Whip the egg whites in the separate bowl with an electric mixture or by hand. When they are stiff and won’t tip out the bowl, add them gently to the other mix. Be gentle and fold in egg whites as to not deflate the beautiful puffs of air you created.

6. Add blueberries or chocolate chips at this point if you want.

7. Spoon about ⅓ cup of batter into your waffle maker and cook for a couple minute or until edges start to crisp up. Keep warm in an oven at 200 F. But they are best served immediately. You can also reheat them by putting them back into the waffle maker briefly. It makes them crispy which I like.

8. Top with fruit, maple syrup, butter or powdered sugar or what your mother desires.
