The Shady Porch: Easy Buttermilk Waffles makes breakfast a treat!


Easy Buttermilk Waffles makes breakfast a treat!

Big breakfast weekends are the best! They have the feel of a get-away B&B weekend, but at home. A big breakfast weekend happens when the weekday rush gives way to favorites that take a bit more time and attention in the preparation - pancakes, biscuits and gravy, or, this past weekend's feature...waffles, which were a end-of-holidays treat!
Easy Buttermilk Waffles

In the event that some of you may have been recent recipients of a waffle iron (Are we the only house to get Christmas appliances? no?), this recipe might be timely for you! Enjoy!

The batter will be really thick but the waffles are light with a crispy, golden outside.

Scald 1/2 cup of corn meal with 1/2 cup of boiling water.
Add: 1 cup of buttermilk
           1 egg
Beat well
Stir In: 1 1/2 cup self-rising flour
Then add: 6 T. melted shortening
Spray the waffle iron with non-stick spray. Add batter to waffle iron and bake until browned or until the timer tells you its done.
Note - we add pecan or blueberries once we've poured the batter on the iron.
These waffles may be mixed the day before!  This recipe makes 6 Belgian (large extra-deep) waffles. 

When preparing pancakes or waffles, prepare a double batch and freeze the extra for quick weekday breakfast treats or to serve up in a waffle and ice cream dessert!
