Dawn’s Belgian Waffles

Whole Wheat Buttermilk WafflesA while back we hosted a recipe contest and the following gem was selected as our winner! Submitted by Dawn D., these waffles not only made us drool but can often be found on our Sunday breakfast table.

Made with Four Star Farms Whole Wheat Pastry Flour and adapted from the King Arthur Flour Classic Buttermilk Waffle Recipe, Dawn writes that she “came up with these waffles specifically to use the FSF whole wheat pastry flour we got in our CSA share from Springdell Farm last winter!” We appreciate Dawn’s enthusiasm and creativity and hope that you all enjoy this wonderful recipe.

Ingredients
  1. 1 3/4 C (7 1/2 ounces) Four Star Farms Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  2. 1/2 C (1 3/4 ounces) almond meal/almond flour
  3. 2 Tbsp sugar
  4. 2 tsp baking powder
  5. 1 tsp baking soda
  6. 1/2 tsp salt
  7. 2 large eggs, room temperature, slightly beaten
  8. 1 3/4 C buttermilk, room temperature
  9. 1/2 C (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  10. 2 tsp vanilla
Optional
  1. 1 C fresh or froze berries, nuts, bananas, etc.
Instructions
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Place a cooling rack over a baking sheet in a warm (170 - 200 degree) oven.
  3. In a large bowl, which together the flour, meal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a smaller bowl, which together the eggs, buttermilk, butter and vanilla.
  5. Mix liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients until the flour is moistened. Gently fold in fruit or nuts, if desired.
  6. If using a Belgian-style waffle maker, ladle about 3/4 cup of batter into the center of the waffle iron and cook for about 3-4 minutes, or until very little steam escapes. For a standard waffle iron, use about 1/3 cup of batter per waffle and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  7. As waffles are cooked, use a fork to carefully remove them from the iron and place on a cooling rack in the oven to keep warm and crisp. Continue with remaining batter.
  8. Serve waffles immediately, or allow to cool completely and freeze between layers of parchment or wax paper. Waffles can be reheated in a toaster oven.
