For those of you who happened upon waffletude hoping to discover some delicious waffle recipe… I don’t want you to be disappointed.

This recipe is the basis to which all variations of waffle batter are built upon. A classic, just like my dad, who was a Texan, used car salesmen, loved to bar-b-que and make waffles on Sunday morning. Of course there is a secret ingredient that makes the difference.


Dry Ingredients

2          cups all-purpose flour

2          teaspoons baking powder

1          teaspoon baking soda

¼         teaspoon salt

¼         cup sugar


Wet Ingredients

2          eggs separated

1          cup buttermilk

1          cup milk

3          tablespoons butter, melted, cooled

1          teaspoon vanilla extract


In a medium-sized bowl mix together all the dry ingredients.

In a large bowl beat together until smooth egg yolks (not the whites!) with wet ingredients. Then slowly blend in the dry ingredients stir until all blended.

THE SECRET: Whip the egg whites until small peaks are formed. Fold them into batter. This makes the waffle extra crispy.

Heat up the waffle iron, and you are good to go.
