Waffles with Buttermilk Caramel Syrup

Oh my word, I cannot begin to tell you how good these waffles with this syrup was.  We just might be making a change to our Saturday morning pancake routine. It all started with talk with the hubby about what he could get me for Christmas. Somehow a waffle maker came up and that’s one of the gifts he got for me, and I looooove it!

It all starts with this pretty yellow waffle maker.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups warm milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and sugar, set aside. Preheat waffle iron to desired temperature.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Slowly stir in the milk. Then add in the butter and vanilla. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix until well combined.
  3. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Keep warm on a plate with napkins under and over the cooked waffles to keep them crisp while you finish the batter. Cover with tinfoil. Serve immediately.

Next time I plan on making double so I can freeze the extras and pull them out when we need a quick breakfast. Now on to the amazing syrup…
