Who here loves waffles? I sure do, and I am happy to have found this homemade fluffy waffle recipe that doesn’t require buttermilk because who has buttermilk lying around when they want want to make some Sunday morning waffles?
The secret to these fluffy waffles are whipping up your batter really well- the batter will look like a fluffy cake batter. I used the most, easy to clean and versatile kitchen gadget I own, my 4 in 1 hand blender that is also a mini food processor and an immersion blender… it works very well and it is nice and compact for those of you who do not have much space for gadgets!
As for making the actual waffle, I used some Pam cooking spray and my Oster Waffle Iron. This waffle maker has been through a lot, including two cross country moves and 12 years of use… it still works like a charm! I poured in about 3/4c of batter and topped a couple of them some mini chocolate chips because my husband is a chocolate fiend! I’ve also heard of people adding banana, sweet potato, peanut butter powder… the options are endless!
We enjoyed one big waffle each and then left the other ones out to cool. After they were done cooling, we tore up the waffles into their quarters and stuck them in a freezer safe bad so we could enjoy waffles all throughout the week! Just pop those babies in the toaster (for a crispier waffle) or microwave (for a softer waffle) and let them warm back up for a yummy breakfast before work/school!
