Servings 4 servings


  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour I like King Arthur
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups 2% cultured buttermilk*
  • ¼ cup melted and cooled unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup mild olive oil or other neutral oil
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. In another bowl whisk together the wet ingredients. Pour into the dry and gently mix until combined. Do not over-mix, some lumps are ok. 
  • Heat your waffle iron up according to the manufacturer's directions. Once hot, spray with cooking spray or use a pastry brush to brush the grids with oil. Add batter to cover the grids, close and cook until crispy, about 3 - 5 minutes depending on your waffle iron. Remove and serve while crisp and hot. (You could hold in a 300°F oven, but the waffles will get a tad soggy.) Serve with your favorite syrups, jams, or fruits.


LindySez: If you don’t have buttermilk, you can emulate it by adding 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to 1 ¾ cup of milk, or mix ¾ cup yogurt to about 1 cup milk.
