I think I’ve mentioned on here a few times that I’m not that big of a breakfast person. I often joke that you’ll either find me making some elaborate breakfast spread (if the mood strikes) or simply grabbing a granola bar in the morning…there is no in between, ha! Maybe that’s the gemini in me idk. And oops, I forgot to mention, a good + quick cast-iron fried egg situation is also one of my faves. All in all, that is it. So, I guess I’ve been doing the intermittent fasting thing in the morning since before it even was a thing haha.

However, when I’m feeling in the mood, I love to go all out and chef it up in the kitchen, y’all. I’m talking cinnamon rolls, sausage gravy and biscuits, french toast bakes, and homemade waffles to name a few. No tea, no shade to my beloved Eggos but homemade waffles gets me every single time! I mean…swoon 😍

Buttermilk Waffles Ingredients

  • all-purpose flour
  • cornmeal (either coarse or fine)
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • sugar
  • kosher salt
  • eggs
  • buttermilk
  • vanilla extract
  • melted butter

I love how crisp yet tender these buttermilk waffles come out. The cornmeal adds a little oomph of flavor and contrast. And if you use coarse cornmeal, you’ll get the little bits of texture thrown in there too! However, if you are not a fan of coarse cornmeal (or you don’t want any grit to your waffles) then use fine cornmeal. These waffles are also fluffy and have that ample buttery flavor too.
