buttermilk waffles

A lazy weekend breakfast with the family deserves to be celebrated. So instead of pouring another bowl of cereal, treat everyone to a batch of crisp homemade buttermilk waffles for a delicious change of pace.

They're as easy to make as pancakes (once you snag a waffle iron) and are the perfect base for swift, sweet toppings like maple-walnut sauce or berries and cream. The first bite will bring out the kid in everyone.

Like pancakes, waffles require a gentle hand when preparing the batter. For the most tender results, don't overmix it -- there should still be some lumps remaining.

My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SLEEPBABY.ORG<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!

It's been years since I'd made waffles from scratch. My husband, kids, our grandkids and I really enjoyed them with fresh fruit, chopped walnuts and whipped cream. I'm keeping this recipe and will be making it again and again. Delicious! Great recipe.
