Buttermilk Belgian Waffles Recipe

Nothing is better on a weekend morning than buttermilk Belgian waffles. If you don't have a waffle iron, this is your sign to buy one. Once you own a waffle maker, breakfasts will be transformed forever.

Recipe developer and registered dietitian nutritionist, Kristen Carli, MS, RD, brings us this recipe that she likes to top with butter, blueberries, and maple syrup. However, the toppings are endless. You can also serve yours with Nutella, powdered sugar, whipped cream, peanut butter, or even chocolate chips.

The buttermilk in these waffles adds a slightly tangy flavor similar to sour cream. This sharp flavor pairs very nicely with sweet maple syrup. The contrast in flavors is one that we cannot get over. We love it!

Let's dive in and get started. Follow our step-by-step guide below to learn how to make these buttermilk Belgian waffles at home. We promise these will be your new favorite breakfast treat.

Gather your ingredients for buttermilk Belgian waffles

To make these buttermilk Belgian waffles, we will need to first gather our ingredients. For this recipe, we will need flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, buttermilk, salted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract.

Whisk together the batter ingredients

The first step involves whisking all of the ingredients together. The best thing about waffle and pancake batter is that you do not need to combine the wet and dry ingredients separately. Instead, you can pour all of the ingredients into one bowl and whisk until the batter is smooth.

In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, buttermilk, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine until no lumps remain. The batter will be very thick.

Scoop the batter into the waffle maker

Heat up your waffle maker and spray both sides with nonstick cooking spray so that the waffles come out easily. Once the waffle maker is hot, use a ladle to scoop the batter into the waffle maker. Close the lid and allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes. Open up the waffle maker and use a fork to gently remove the waffle from the appliance and set aside.

Repeat with remaining batter

Repeat this process with the remaining batter. Be sure to spray the waffle maker with nonstick cooking spray between each waffle. 

Now you can serve your waffles up however you desire. We love them topped with butter, blueberries, and syrup.
