Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 15min
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3 large eggs
- 3 cups buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly.
- 1. Preheat and grease a waffle iron. You'll want to use a fairly shallow waffle iron that makes relatively flat waffles. Also prepare your frying pan for cooking the panwaffle in.
- 2. In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together to combine.
- 3. In a large bowl or measuring cup (preferably something with a spout), whisk the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted butter to combine.
- 4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until relatively smooth, but don’t worry about any lumps.
- 5. When your waffle iron is nice and hot, give it a generous coating of non-stick spray. Ladle about 2/3 cup batter into the centre of the iron, then close it. Cook the waffle until it is set, but not yet golden.
- 6. Under-cook the waffle a bit since it will brown more on the stove top. If you like your waffles super crispy, cook it until it just begins to turn golden (2-3 minutes). Repeat until you have six waffles.
- 7. Make one panwaffle at a time as they're big.
- 8. Spray the hot pan with non-stick spray and raise the heat to medium. Place a waffle onto the pan, then ladle about 2/3 cup of batter evenly around it. The mixture will bubble, as pancakes like to do.
- 9. When the bubbles stop appearing on the surface of the batter, it's time to flip (2-3 minutes).
- 10. Cook another 2-3 minutes on the other side. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup, or fresh berries and ice cream
