These golden butter waffles were my first crack at using the new waffle maker, and they turned out awesome! The edges are crisp, the insides are fluffy, and the flavor is perfect. Add a little butter and syrup on the top, and you’ve got breakfast perfection! I’m sure they would work well in whatever waffle maker you have and love, so don’t feel like you need to rush out and buy the one I like if you have one you love instead. I’m just sharing to give you a little tip-off if you, like me, have struggled to find a good waffle maker for nearly fourteen years now. 🙂
Golden Butter Waffles
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Add the butter and milk to a small bowl or measuring cup, and heat in the microwave for one minute and thirty seconds, or until the butter is melted. whisk in the vanilla and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until fluffy. Add the milk mixture and stir to combine. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar, and mix until just combined (small lumps are ok). Let sit five minutes.
While the batter is resting, preheat your waffle iron. Add the batter and cook according to your waffle maker’s directions. For my belgian waffle maker, 1 cup of batter cooked for 4 minutes was perfect.
