Cooking Tips

For waffles with the ideal crispiness, ensure your waffle maker is preheated. Brushing the maker with some extra butter adds a layer of flavour and helps achieve that beautiful golden hue.

Serving and Storing Suggestions

Serve Buttermilk Waffles fresh off the griddle, adorned with syrup, fruits, or a dollop of whipped cream. If, by any chance, you have leftovers, they freeze well—pop them in the toaster for a quick, delightful breakfast on busy mornings.
