I’m not sure if you know this about me, but breakfast is my favorite meal.  With waffles, pancakes and french toast topping that list of breakfast favorites.

A few weeks ago I was making our favorite weekend buttermilk waffles and I realized I had never shared the recipe with you.  While these buttermilk waffles are good any time of year, any day of the week – there is something extra special about enjoying them on a snowy weekend when it’s cold, the fire is going and you are in your pajamas all day. 😉

Homemade waffles are a great treat and I have no problem using a baking mix but honestly, making buttermilk waffles from scratch is just as simple, you probably even have all of the ingredients you need in your pantry.

I will say this is one of those recipes that is better if you use real buttermilk as opposed to substituting with milk and vinegar.  I picked up buttermilk at the store knowing I could use it when I made Cinnamon Bread and planned on making waffles a few days as well.

These buttermilk waffles yield delightfully crisp edges, golden brown on the outside with soft, tender centers that are light as air on the inside.
