Description

Cornbread waffles have a nice crunch on the outside with a soft, slightly crumbly inside, and they are a fun remix of the traditional savory bread that goes great with chili, barbecue, or just a swipe of simple honey butter.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup light oil, such as canola, avocado, or vegetable

Instructions

  1. Plug in your waffle iron, and get it heating (I have found that the deep wells of a Belgian-style waffle maker work great for this recipe).
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk to combine.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture, and add the buttermilk, eggs, and oil. Whisk to combine well.
  4. Cook the batter according to the manufacture’s directions of your waffle iron.
  5. Repeat with remaining batter.
  6. When one waffle is done, let it rest on a wire wrack, taking care not to stack the waffles (the steam they produce makes them soggy if you stack them on a plate).
  7. Serve hot with your favorite chili and cheese, pulled pork with coleslaw and beans, or taco toppings on top. It also makes a great option to go with a bowl of chili for a fun change. You can serve them as sweet waffles, too, and they are great with honey butter on top.

Notes

  • You can use store-bought buttermilk or homemade buttermilk. To make homemade buttermilk, add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or white vinegar to a 2-cup measuring cup. Fill the rest of the measuring cup up with milk to the 2-cup line, since that’s how much you need. Let the buttermilk mixture rest for 5 minutes before using.
