Everyone Should Have a Good Waffle Recipe

7 Jan

When I was writing my year-in-review post, I realized I had not shared many savory or staple recipes on Gusto & Grace. This year, I want to change that. Throughout the year, look for basic recipes with the title “Everyone Should Have a Good __________ Recipe.”

Anthony and I have tested four or five different waffle recipes. This recipe makes the best waffles around. The best part is they’re really easy to make. Whip up a batch without separating eggs and whipping egg whites!

Everyone Should Have: A Good Waffle Recipe www.gustoandgraceblog.comMy husband got me the rose gold flatware for Christmas. Isn’t it lovely?


  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Toppings of your choice for serving

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Next add the buttermilk, oil, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Mix well. Let sit for 30 minutes. This allows the buttermilk and baking soda to react and give your waffles that crisp, fluffy texture. Heat up your waffle maker. Use non-stick cooking spray just before pouring the batter onto the waffle maker (only do this for the first waffle). Cook according to waffle maker’s instructions. Makes approximately 10 waffles.

Sometimes, I like to add a little cinnamon to the batter.

Word to the wise: If you don’t yet have a waffle maker, purchase a square one when you do. Frozen waffles toast up nicely, but round waffles won’t fit in a standard toaster. You also make four servings at a time rather than one which is great if you have breakfast guests.

I hope your new year is off to a great start!

    That flatware is so perfect! These waffles look so good, a waffle iron is on my kitchen appliance wish list.

      If you haven’t gotten one by the time I swap my round one for a square one, I’ll pass it along.

      In regards to the rose gold silver, there is an amazing Pottery Barn/West Elm/Williams Sonoma Outlet about 25 minutes South of Austin…. 🙂
