The 6 year old wasn’t feeling so good this morning. He slept very late and I let him because one day he won’t be able to just sleep in when he’s under the weather. But when you’re 6? That’s definitely allowed. After a slow start to the day and getting little brother to school, the 6 year old and I decided waffles were in order! Don’t tell anyone, but I love waffles WAY more than pancakes. No contest. Unless the pancakes are from Snooze in which case I want them all. Maybe it has something to do with how the syrup pools in the little squares. Or how the outside gets so nice and crispy. Or how you can break them into tidy little triangles. Whatever it is, I am here. for. it.

Disclaimer: These waffles are not “health food”. They have half a stick of butter in them and I’m not sorry because if you’re going to eat waffles you might as well do it right. Are you with me? They don’t have a ton of sugar and I did use a bit of whole wheat flour, but mostly for flavor so don’t get too excited. Or get REALLY excited because you’re gonna love these forever and ever amen.

OK- no more delaying. On to this perfect waffle recipe! Make them for your family. Make them for friends. Make them for houseguests and don’t forget the coffee! Also, they freeze beautifully so don’t be afraid to double the recipe and freeze what you don’t eat. Just pop them in the toaster and you’re golden!

Brown Butter Vanilla Waffles

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour

  • 4 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs, beaten well

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  • 1 3/4 cups milk

  1. Begin by browning the butter. Add it to a saucepan over medium heat. The butter will melt, then start to sputter and foam, then it will all settle down and the milk particles will start to turn golden brown and a nutty aroma will fill your kitchen. Keep an eye on the butter through this process so it doesn’t burn! Stir occasionally, being sure to scrape the bottom of the pan. Transfer to a heatproof liquid measuring cup and set aside.

  2. Whisk the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and vanilla. Add the milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Pour in the browned butter and stir until incorporated.

  4. Preheat a waffle iron. They’re all different. I set mine to a medium temperature, but you do you Boo Boo!

  5. Pour about 1/3 cup of the batter in the center of the waffle iron. Keep the waffles warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to eat. Serve with more butter (because #yolo) and syrup. And coffee. Lots of coffee. Enjoy!
