Tasty Tuesday - Buttermilk Citrus Waffles

Tasty Tuesday
Welcome to another week of Tasty Tuesday here at The Young'ns!
Please link up your recipe at the bottom of the page. You can post a link to a recipe on your blog or anywhere else. In the title of your link, please leave your name too (especially if it's not a blog post) so I know who it came from :)
Also, feel free to grab my Tasty Tuesday button, it's on the left side, near my other button.
My kids would both live on waffles if I would let them. Usually about once a month, I make a huge batch and freeze them. Then all I have to do in the morning is pop them in the toaster, and tada! Breakfast :)
This recipe can be modified to be just about any flavor. I've made them cinnamon-vanilla and just plain, but my most recent creation was citrus and boy, are they tasty! This quantity will make roughly 2 dozen waffles (at least in my waffle maker), but you can halve it if you like.

{Ingredients}
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • dash of True Lemon (or cinnamon or what-have-you)
  • 4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp orange extract (or vanilla)

{Directions}
  • Preheat waffle maker as directed. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and true lemon.
  • In another bowl, melt butter and add buttermilk, eggs, and orange extract. Combine with wet ingredients.
  • Cook according to your waffle maker's directions (Mine is 1/2 cup batter for 2 waffles, cook for 2 minutes)
  • After they're cooked, place on baking sheet in single or double layer and freeze overnight. Place in gallon bag after they're frozen to keep for a long time. Makes for a super-easy, kid- and parent-friendly breakfast. For people who care if their food is hot, like grown-ups, put in microwave for 30 seconds before toasting. If it's for the littles, they don't seem to care if there's a few spots that aren't quite hot :)
