Buttermilk Waffles

My daughter’s friends are home from college for Christmas break. She is thrilled.  One thing they have done every year since they were in 7th grade is get together for a “Christmas Party” sleepover. This year it was a bit after Christmas but they all were still here. We made a waffle bar for dinner. It is the easiest way to make sure everyone finds something they like.


I served both these buttermilk waffles and a chocolate waffle on our waffle bar and the favorite was these the buttermilk waffles. The chocolate waffles were really sweet and more of a dessert waffle while these were perfect for berries, whipped topping, butter, or syrup. These waffles are slightly crispy on the outside and soft and tender inside. Everyone loved these waffles.

A waffle with a slightly crispy outside with a soft tender inside.


  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cup whole milk or buttermilk
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 egg
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter and syrup for serving, if desired


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat a waffle iron. Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
