Sometimes you're just in the mood for waffles. Lovely little squares for butter and syrup to collect in, mmm, waffles are such a nice way to start the day. I typically make pancakes for weekend breakfasts, but we thought we would give the Clinton St. Baking Co. waffles a go. It uses the base recipe for their pancakes (which are pure heaven) with a few additional ingredients. I loved them, they were crisp on the outside, cakey on the inside, with a lovely mild orange flavour.
The recipe was a little strange, calling itself buttermilk waffles but there was no buttermilk in the recipe (?). I assumed this was a typo and used buttermilk instead of milk for the pancakes.
Vanilla Buttermilk Waffles
from Clinton St. Baking Co.
Pancake batter (use batter recipe for Neil's Pancakes)
NOTE: I used buttermilk in place of milk for the pancake recipe
1 tablespoon clarified butter
1 tablespoon canola oil, plus more for waffle iron
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange extract
Make the pancake better, lightly fold in clarified butter, oil, vanilla, and orange extract. Preheat waffle iron to 350 degrees F, according to manufacturers instructions.
Once waffle iron is ready, spray with nonstick oil. Cook for 3 1/2 minutes or until waffle is golden brown with a nice crust and crunchy texture. Serve with whatever toppings you like!
