Use 2 cups buttermilk or if you only have regular milk, you can create "buttermilk" with this easy trick. . .
Add 4 tablespoons of white vinegar to the 2 cups milk. Set aside for a few minutes as it "sours!"
Start with two eggs. Beat well until frothy.
Add the two cups of flour to the eggs.
Add the 2 tsps. baking powder, 1 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 tsp. salt.
Soften 1/4 cup butter or margarine. Melt it in the microwave or in a saucepan on your stove.
Here's my secret ingredient (shhhhh....) - bacon fat! Drop 2 tablespoons into the melted butter and stir until melted. If you don't eat pork, just use 2 more tablespoons of butter.
Add the butter to the bowl.
Add the milk.
Beat well until the batter is mixed well.
Use a whisk to take out the lumps. Beat until smooth. This is a thin batter.
Preheat your waffle iron (ok, so mine is a bit old and funky - but it works!). I use some butter to grease the waffle iron (and for added flavor!)
Like this! Done! Yum!
Lift the waffle from the iron carefully with a folk. Serve hot with butter and syrup or other spreads. This recipe makes about 4-5 waffles. Enjoy!
