Crunchy Cornmeal Waffles

I almost made cornmeal pancakes this morning but decided on waffles instead. These waffles have a crunch to them from the cornmeal and would be great topped with raspberries or blueberries to offset the corn. Although these were good, I think I prefer cornmeal pancakes--next time! Continue for recipe.

Crunchy Cornmeal Waffles

King Arthur Flour

1 3/4 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
5 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled OR 1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt

Waffles: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and melted butter or oil. In a separate bowl, blend together the dry ingredients, then quickly and gently combine the wet and dry ingredients. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes, to allow the cornmeal to soften. Drop the batter by 1/3-cupfuls onto a hot waffle iron, and bake until the waffle iron stops steaming.

Yield: about ten 8-inch round waffles.
