This is my everyday waffle from a much used and loved cookbook, (the spine of the book is broken and there are spots all over it) a dear friend gave to me nearly 15 years ago. This Cooks Illustrated recipe, is just simply a fantastic cookbook for amazing standards that hold the test of time. This is their recipe for Best Buttermilk Waffles, though we have enhanced the original recipe with a couple of tablespoons of sugar which gives it just a tiny bit of sweetness and offsets the tartness of the buttermilk and creates balance.


  •   2 Tbsp sugar
  •   1 Cup all-purpose flour
  •   1 Tbsp cornmeal
  •   1/12 tsp salt
  •   1/4 tsp baking soda
  •   1 egg separated
  •   7/8 Cup buttermilk
  •   2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted


  1. Whisk dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
  2. In a different bowl, whisk yolk with buttermilk and melted butter, but not hot butter.
  3. Beat egg white until firm.
  4. Add liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients in a thin, steady stream, while gently mixing with a  rubber spatula. Only add liquid as fast as you can incorporate into the batter. Toward the end of mixing, use a folding motion to incorporate all the ingredients and gently fold egg white into the batter.
  5. Spread batter onto heated waffle iron. Cook for 2-5 minutes until golden brown, or until waffle iron beeps.
