This is my tried and true buttermilk waffles recipe I've been making for my family for years! These waffles have the best flavor and always turn out fluffy. You can top them with anything you want, try some fresh berries or just the classic maple syrup.

Breakfast is never fully complete without a big plate of fluffy buttermilk waffles. If you've never used buttermilk in your waffles it's about time you try! They give waffles a really good soft texture and a bit of a tang in the taste, but in a good way.
And I don't know about your family but it's always the weekend breakfast debate, pancakes or waffles. If you ask my son it doesn't matter, as long as I'm serving bacon.
Can anyone relate?
Around this time last year I shared this apple dutch baby, a family recipe handed down from my great grandmother. Definitely worth a try.
How To Make Waffles
It couldn't be any easier to make this waffle recipe.
Grab two bowls.
In one bowl, melt the butter then whisk in the eggs and buttermilk.
In another bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients then pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix together. Some lumps are okay, you just don't want big lumps of flour.
Pour the waffle batter into your waffle iron and wait until they are done. So easy and simple.
In my experience there are a few ways to make sure you get fluffy waffles every time.
Use two separate bowls for wet and dry when mixing. Don't overmix. Don't overcook.
One thing you'll notice is that I don't add a lot of sugar to this recipe. I guess I just always figured that it's about to get a sugary topping, what's the point?
I've been making these waffles the same way for 15 years and I know for certain this is a tried and true recipe you will use over and over again.
