Waffles are one of those foods that, like pretzels, mayo, brownies, seem inseparable from the package. Whether it’s a glass jar, an easy-close pouch, or, in the case of waffles, a cardboard box for powder or frozen discs, the container is a component of the food. These are foods that we envision as part of our pantries. We don’t question how they got there. We just stick them in the toaster or mix in some 1% milk, and that seems to be enough. Basically, waffles are to be eaten, not made. Until you try our recipe.
These Buttermilk Waffles from Pixelated Crumb are a beautiful brunch creation. They are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and put anything that comes in cardboard to shame. The waffles capture the essence of homemade. Even if your home was like mine, where food was more often defrosted than whisked and folded and baked, the fresh-baked smell and even better taste says that there’s no place like home, especially with a plate of homemade waffles.
