Fluffy Buttermilk Waffles

Makes 10 servings


  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp malted milk powder
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 ¼ cups buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Desired toppings


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Place a wire rack in a large rimmed pan; set aside. Separate eggs, placing yolks in a medium bowl and whites in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, malted milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center; set aside.
  3. Whisk buttermilk and vanilla into egg yolks until well combined; set aside.
  4. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium-high until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight).
  5. Add egg yolk mixture to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter will be lumpy). Fold in beaten egg whites.
  6. Spray grids of a Belgian waffle or regular maker with cooking spray; wipe off any excess. Preheat waffle maker to medium-high heat. Pour batter into waffle maker until almost full. Close lid and bake according to manufacturer’s directions until golden. (Do not open lid until done.) When done, use a fork to lift waffles off of grids. Transfer to wire rack in rimmed pan and keep warm in oven. Repeat with remaining batter, spraying grids with cooking spray between batches. Serve waffles with desired waffle toppings.
