You can’t go wrong starting weekend mornings with classic waffles. Freeze any extras and toast them to make weekday breakfast just as special.


  • 2 eggs
  • 13/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 11/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. Preheat a waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a large bowl whisk the eggs until they are foaming. Add the buttermilk, oil and vanilla extract whisking after each addition until fully incorporated.
  3. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt to the batter mixing until only small lumps remain.
  4. When the waffle iron is hot, pour the batter evenly over the grid using a wooden spoon or a silicone spatula to spread stopping short of the corners. Cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup.
