Omi's Waffle Recipe

"Omi" is the name I call my grandmother.  Sadly, Omi recently passed away and my heart broke.  In honoring Omi's memory and the things she loved and taught me, I would like to share with you one of the breakfast items she used to cook for me - her waffles.  Omi's waffles are very popular in our family and really have no runner up.  Toss out your Eggo waffles, folks, and get ready to indulge in mouth-watering waffles that only a German grandmother could elicit.

Omi's Waffle Recipe

  • 2-2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • a little salt
  • waffle iron
  • Plug in your waffle iron and spray with oil
  • Combine dry ingredients in a bowl mixing thoroughly
  • Add in the wet ingredients and mix thoroughly
  • Pour portion of mixture onto waffle iron and wait for it to cook
**This recipe will make around 10 waffles.  If you want less, just cut the recipe in half.

Once the waffle is to your liking in the waffle iron, carefully remove it so as to not burn your fingers.  Place onto a nice looking plate, preferably with tulips or polka dots, and prepare it to your liking.  I love my waffles with a little butter and Knott's Berry Farm's boysenberry syrup.  Ahhh, the flavors of my childhood.  Unfortunately, Knott's doesn't make boysenberry syrup anymore, so I've resorted to Smucker's boysenberry syrup.  #notthesame #butitworks

Side note - Omi recommended grating an apple to add to the waffle mixture; however, I've never prepped my waffles that way.  If you do, let me know how it turns out.  Also, you can freeze any waffles you don't indulge in and simply toast them another day and they're still delicious.

Happy Waffling!
