Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles

These waffles are appealing because of their tart, wheaty taste. The perfect complement is warm honey–which becomes thin and pours like syrup when heated.

Taste and Texturebuttery, light


  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk, if needed


  1. Put the flours into a mixing bowl and add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Stir with a fork to blend.

  2. In another mixing bowl, beat the eggs until well blended. Stir in the buttermilk and the melted butter (cooled off a little). Add the flour mixture and stir until well mixed—if the batter seems rather thick, add the ¼ cup milk to thin it. The batter should flow from the spoon, not plop.

  3. Bake in a hot waffle iron until crisp and golden. Serve hot.
