  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (180 grams)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (50 grams)
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch (28 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk (295 ml)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (113 grams), melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  • Preheat a waffle maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Grease with non-stick spray if necessary. Pour scant 1 cup batter into the hot waffle maker (1/2 cup for smaller waffle irons). Cook until golden brown (this was about 5-6 minutes in my waffle iron.)
  • Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200 degree F oven in a single-layer.
