One Bowl Easy Buttermilk Waffles
This is a quick and easy homemade buttermilk waffle recipe that has chewy centers and crispy buttery edges. The perfect easy waffle recipe!
I have been making homemade waffles ever since I could climb up on a stool. I grew up eating waffles almost every single weekend and to this day, my Mom still makes us waffles…even for dinner!
There’s such a difference between a waffle made from homemade batter and what you get from a box. I wanted to create a waffle recipe that was made in one bowl so it is super simple. There’s no whipping up the egg whites and folding them in. This is a one bowl waffle recipe that can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes.

I will be breaking down how to make these perfect buttermilk waffles. There are tips and tricks for making them fluffy even without the extra step of whipping egg whites. I will share all of my secrets!
How to make Quick and Easy Waffles:
- Start with mixing the dry ingredients together. Since we want to create tender waffle, we don’t want to overmix the flour. A simple stir with a spoon is sufficient.
- Add Buttermilk. The reason buttermilk is so important is that it helps to create that perfect tender, chewy texture. If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, use whole or 2% milk mixed with 2 Tablespoons of vinegar. Set aside for at least 10-15 minutes to start the thickening process.
- Add a mix of Butter and Oil. Butter infuses the waffle with flavor and adds the necessary fat to create a delectable waffle but the oil helps to create the crispy edges.
- Spray the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray or use butter. We also love to spray the waffle iron first and then add a touch of butter between every waffle. This is my favorite waffle maker. Also, this is another highly-rated waffle maker that is less expensive.
- After cooking waffles, place on a cookie rack to let the steam escape. This ensures you don’t end up with soggy waffles!
- Top with your favorite maple syrup, fresh whipped cream, fresh fruits, and nuts.
There are all kinds of topping combinations to put on your waffles. Here are some of the classic favorite waffle toppings:
- Strawberries + Whipped Cream + Real Maple Syrup
- Peaches + Whipped Cream
- Nutella + Strawberries
- Raspberries + Pecans + Whipped Cream
- Banana + Walnuts + Real Maple Syrup
- Biscoff Spread + Raspberries + Strawberries + Whipped Cream
- Cinnamon Sugar + Whipped Cream
