All you need to know to make perfect waffles, nice and crispy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside!



For the Waffles

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, white and yolk separated

For the Berry Sauce

  • 2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon butter

For the Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


For the Waffles

  1. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. Add butter, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and egg yolks and whisk together. Do not over mix.
  3. Whisk the egg whites on high speed in the bowl of an electric mixer until peaks form. Fold the whisked egg whites into the waffle batter, being careful not to deflate.
  4. Preheat the waffle baker. When ready, scoop about 1 cup (depending on the size of the waffle baker) and bake for 3 to 3 1/2 minutes or until golden brown.

For the Berry Sauce

  1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Bring to a gentle boil for one minute or until sauce begins to thicken slightly, stirring constantly, and then reduce heat to low until ready to serve. If the sauce becomes to thick, you can add more orange juice by the tablespoon to thin.

For the Whipped Cream

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract low speed. As the cream thickens, increase the speed gradually. Whisk on high speed until soft peaks form, about 2-4 minutes.


Recipe adapted from Completely Delicious If you have extra batter, just cover and refrigerate and to use the next day. Or you can go ahead and make extra waffles, freeze, and then reheat in your waffle maker later.
