buttermilk belgian waffles

when i was little, my mom always made waffles in her heart-shaped waffle iron.  i loved that waffle iron so much because it chirped like a bird when the waffles were ready.  it looked like this and made waffles like this.  ryan and i have been using my mom's heart-shaped waffle iron for the past several years, and i was so sad when it finally died a few months ago.  

ryan's brother and sister-in-law recently bought us a new waffle iron that looks like this.  it flips around (like the waffle irons at hotels) and it makes big belgian waffles.  unfortunately, it doesn't chirp like a bird when the waffles are done, so i have to keep a close eye on them and make my own sound effects.  on sunday, we made buttermilk belgian waffles.  i can't think of a better way to start a sunday morning!  


buttermilk belgian waffles
prep time: 5 minutes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter

directions:
preheat your waffle iron.  melt the butter in the microwave.  in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, buttermilk, and eggs.  mix the melted butter into the batter.  pour approximately 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of batter into your waffle iron (depending on the size of your waffle iron).  cook until the waffles are golden brown on both sides.  serve hot with maple syrup.

enjoy!
