I Completely Gave Up on Making Waffles…

I gave up making waffles for many years, not because we don’t love them but because it took forever to cook enough for our large family. Sadly, I don’t have a solution for that yet, but I do have a fantastic buckwheat waffle recipe to share with you.

Homemade buckwheat waffles can be made at home with a few simple ingredients.

Tips for the Perfect Buckwheat Waffle

Perfectly whipped egg whites for buckwheat waffles.

1. Just go ahead and whip the egg whites.

These waffles take a little bit more effort than the other recipes I use (you separate the eggs and whip the whites). Thankfully, in this recipe, a little bit of extra effort goes a long way in these. Yes, I tend to be a lazy cook and am not a fan of having to take “extra” steps, but in this case, it really is worth it.

2. Don’t over-mix the batter

You want the air bubbles in the batter to provide extra “fluff” to your finished waffle

3. Use a quality waffle iron

We have this Breville Waffle Maker. It was not cheap but it is amazing! We received it as a family gift a few years ago and it really does make perfect waffles.

4. Make extra and FREEZE!

It is really easy to freeze waffles. Let them cook completely, then stack them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper between each waffle. Freeze completely, then place in freezer bags. You now have homemade waffles that can be popped into the toaster!

    My waffle tip is just go ahead and buy another waffle iron (or two!) They are easy to find at thrift stores. This drastically improved our waffle experience.

    Pretty good recipe! I subbed the butter for avocado oil, subbed the cinnamon for 1.5 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning, and I added 1.5 tsp of vanilla. Makes 9 waffles

    Tried this and it was amazing! Thanks for the recipe. Fyi – I used yogurt instead of sour cream. And recipe does not mention where to add butter so I added with wet ingredients. Will be saving this recipe.
