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.

Oh, how I wish it was still the weekend and I was enjoying these waffles! They look perfect!
I have got to get myself a waffle maker. These look so good Cheryl!
These waffles look as though they have the perfect texture. What a perfect meal for a chilly, lazy weekend morning.
We got a waffle maker as a wedding present and, shamefully, we don’t use it enough; however, breakfast is a favorite of mine too!! xo
I definitely like to wake up to a good breakfast each day. I will have to try this waffle recipe out.
This looks like my kind of Sunday morning breakfast! Waffles are my favorite!
I could sign my name under your post, Cheryl. Buttermilk is magic ingredient, and makes all baked goods better. We make a batch of similar waffles on weekends and freeze for weekdays. Can’t even compare to store-bought, and so easy.
Love your photos!
Weekends were made for waffles. These look so very good, Cheryl.
I totally need to get a waffle maker so I can make these waffles!
This looks AWESOME!
I love these photos so much!! We have waffles on many many weekends. One of my favorite things to make the boys!
Dear Cheryl, These waffles look splendid. This is the second waffle I have seen today..now I desperately need to get a waffle maker. I feel like I am missing out on all the fun! Pinned for later. xo, Catherine
Breakfast is my favorite meal too. Love starting the day with something sweet. I’ll have to give your waffle recipe a try soon.
Buttermilk Waffles, Coffee & PJ’s???? I’m coming over 🙂 xoxo Nic

Great recipe! I’ve tried so many waffle recipes and I love the taste and texture of these waffles the best. I’ve made them twice and they turned out great both times. Bonus that I don’t have to whip the whites separately. Thanks for posting my new go to waffle recipe!
Saving this one for ALL my weekends!!
