Waffle of Insane Greatness

Looking for the best homemade waffle ever?  Well, look no further.  I finally got around to making The Waffle of Insane Greatness this weekend, and let me tell you, it is insanely great! 

This has been on my list to make for a long time.  The recipe is from Aretha Frankensteins in Chattanooga, TN.  It is a small eclectic place with fabulous home-cooked food.  I have actually been to Aretha Frankensteins for breakfast and it was really good.  It is a must-eat if you are in town. 

I don’t usually make breakfast, but we decided to take a day trip on Sunday to Tigers for Tomorrow, a wild animal sanctuary about an hour and a half away from Birmingham.  I knew we needed to eat a larger breakfast since we wouldn’t get eat lunch until later in the day.  I busted out the waffle iron and finally made these waffles.  They were insanely great!  Really!  I have a small waffle iron and we got 3 1/2 waffles out of the batter.  You will definitely want to double or triple the recipe if you have more than 2 people or a Belgium waffle maker.

(Printable Recipe)

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup whole buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Butter and syrup, for serving

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat a waffle iron. Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Serve immediately with butter and syrup.
