The idea of making waffles at home from scratch is always thrilling for me. However, it takes a few minutes longer than making with baking batter. But they have extra freshness and flavor that I need the most in my breakfast to start my day. After the most savory and delicious vegan falafel waffle, the other waffle recipe that I love the most these days is buttermilk waffles.

These classic buttermilk waffles offer the right amount of freshness and flavor to boost my mood in the morning. These are the fluffiest waffle that I have ever eaten; its fluffy interior is light-as-air, while the exterior is delightfully crispy. Whip one buttermilk waffle with delicious smoothie, and you’ll be in an excellent mood to start your day.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 3 cups gluten-free, all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups low fat buttermilk
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tbsp. salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Maple syrup
  • Blueberry sauce
  • Berries and cream for topping
  • Banana – Caramel sauce


Make Batter

In a bowl, add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flutter until they are evenly combined. In a separate bowl, gently whisk buttermilk and butter. Take a third bowl and stir both buttermilk mixture and flour mixture until the batter is slightly lumpy. When whisking together, try to do it gently until no more streaks of dry flour left. Add vanilla extract.

Note: Do not try to whisk flour buttermilk and

butter straight in a bowl. First, mix dry and wet ingredients separately;

otherwise, the wet ingredients may not incorporate correctly or may take a long

time to integrate.

Rest the batter until you warm your waffle iron

Cover the batter with a food storage cover or kitchen towel and set aside for at least 10 minutes—Preheat the waffle iron according to manufacturer instructions and grease with non-stick cooking oil or spray.

Make the waffle

Now when you batter is ready, and the waffle iron is heated, it’s time to make these crispy and delicious waffles. Scoop batter into each grid of the waffle iron and cook until you get your desired crispiness. 

Warm the oven

Preheat the oven at 250℉. Set a metal cooling wire on the top of the baking rack and place it in the oven. 

Transfer waffle to the heated oven

Transfer the cooked waffle to the cooling rack in the heated oven. Ensure all the waffle are placed in a single layer; it will prevent the steam from trapping between layers and offers you an even crispness. Repeat the same process with the remaining batter and cook more waffles.

Serve the cooked waffles

When all batches are prepared, serve them as soon as possible. Top them with your favorite maple syrup or berries and cream. Happy eating!

For an added crispiness, replace half of the buttermilk with fresh milk. Once I tried this swap in my recipe, and I was amazed by the taste. It gives excellent crispiness to waffles that I never got before. You should also try this.
