Waffles for breakfast

I bought my waffle maker for $1 from a garage sale about 8 years ago. It has travelled with me and made many batches of delicious waffles. I think that waffles have a reputation for being hard to make, but they aren’t any different to making a batch of pancakes. I keep the cooked waffles warm in a low oven until I’m ready to place a pile on the table, with Canadian maple syrup and bacon.

Canadian maple syrup


  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or milk soured with the juice from half a lemon)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl with a whisk.
  2. Make a well and add the wet ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  3. Let the batter sit for about 30 minutes
  4. Cook in a hot waffle iron until crisp and brown.
