Buttermilk Waffles

So a few weeks ago I asked on my facebook fan page if anyone had a recommendation for a waffle iron and waffle recipe. I quickly took notes, ran to the store, and got a lovely waffle iron. Is there anything better than waffles? Well, yes... chocolate... but you get my point.

I received many awesome suggestions and bookmarked most of them for later use. I didn't go with any of the suggestions (John would laugh at this- I always ask him for restaurant suggestions and then ignore his opinions... what can I say?) but these waffles were great. I was really looking for a simple, classic recipe. Nothing fancy, nothing exciting. Just a classic waffle. And these were perfect. I love that I now have a bag of these in the freezer for later use. Yum.

2 cups all purpose flour
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups low-fat buttermilk
1 stick butter, melted
2 large eggs
Vegetable oil or cooking spray for the waffle iron

1- Preheat the oven to 275 and set a cookie sheet on the lower rack.
2- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together buttermilk, butter, and eggs; add flour mixture, and mix just until batter is combined.
3- Heat waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions; brush with oil or cooking spray. Pour batter onto iron (amount depends on iron size), leaving a 1/2-inch border on all sides (spread batter if necessary). Close iron; cook until waffles are golden brown and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to rack in oven to keep warm; repeat with remaining batter.
