  • If you don't have cake flour, you can make your own by combining 1 cup all-purpose flour with 2 tablespoons cornstarch.
  • Be sure to use room temperature butter for best results.

  • Substitution 1: Substitute the butter with coconut oil. The benefit of this substitution is that coconut oil is a healthier alternative to butter, as it is lower in saturated fat and contains beneficial fatty acids.
  • Substitution 2: Substitute the buttermilk with plain yogurt. The benefit of this substitution is that plain yogurt is a healthier alternative to buttermilk, as it is lower in fat and contains beneficial probiotics.

Chocolate Chip Waffles Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the batter before cooking the waffles.

Blueberry Compote: A sweet and tangy accompaniment to the waffles with the addition of fresh blueberries and a hint of lemon.

Maple Bacon: Crispy bacon slices are the perfect salty and savory contrast to the sweet blueberry compote and waffles. The addition of a drizzle of maple syrup adds a unique flavor that complements the other flavors perfectly.

Wow, dienia, this is my favorite waffle recipe so far. It is awesome, crisp, and delicious just the way I like it. It held up beautifully with the whipped cream and Maple syrup my hubby had on his. I wanted a little something something... this morning, so I topped my waffle with cool whip and raspberries and drizzled a little maple syrup over top. They were excellent. Thanks for sharing another recipe that has gone into my best of cookbook for 2020. Kudos to you my friend. Made FYC tag game.
