Light and Fluffy Waffles

Had breakfast for dinner last night... now I just wish I had doubled the recipe for this morning! The texture of these waffles are perfect, not too chewy and wonderfully fluffy. Enjoy!

Light and Fluffy Waffles

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and stir to combine.Beat the egg in another medium bowl until its about doubled in size, and combine with sugar, butter, and shortening, mixing well until smooth. 3 Add the half & half, buttermilk and vanilla and mix well. 4 Add the dry flour mixture to the wet mixture while beating and mix until smooth. 5 If you can, cover and chill overnight, though the batter can be used right away. 6 Rub a light coating of vegetable oil on a waffle iron, and preheat it. 7 Leave the batter out of the refrigerator to warm up a bit as your waffle iron is preheating. 8 Spoon 1/3 to 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the waffles are light brown.

  1. It does look light and airy. I make similar ones but yours look much airier! Will try for this Sunday breakfast!
