Why I Love This Recipe

From Recipes in Rotation blog series on My Word with Douglas E. Welch (http://welchwrite.com/blog/category/recipes-in-rotation/)

I have a couple of favorite waffle recipes, but since I really like crispy waffles, this is the one I usually turn to first. The addition of cornmeal lends a lot of flavor, but also a lot of crunch to the waffles. Since they are so crispy, they also re-heat really well in the toaster even after being frozen. The recipe makes a fairly good-sized batch of waffles, so I usually end up with 4-6 to freeze even after we enjoy our breakfast.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup sifted all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)
1 cup yellow cornmeal, preferably stoneground
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
2 cups well-shaken buttermilk
6 tablespoons vegetable oil plus additional oil for brushing waffle iron

Accompaniment: pure maple syrup


Directions

Into a large bowl sift together flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Repeat sifting 2 more times.


In another large bowl whisk together eggs, buttermilk, and oil. Add flour mixture all at once and whisk just until combined.


Preheat a waffle iron and preheat oven to 200 °F.


Brush waffle iron lightly with additional oil. Spoon batter into waffle iron, using 1/4 cup batter for each 4-inch-square standard waffle and spreading batter evenly, and cook according to manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer waffle to a baking sheet and keep warm, uncovered, in middle of oven. Make more waffles with remaining batter in same manner, brushing waffle iron with mire oil before adding each batch.


Serve waffles with syrup.
