The tips for today are Buttermilk Waffles
Note: while the waffles can be eaten as soon as they are removed from the waffle iron, they will have a crispier exterior if rested in a warm oven for 10 minutes. ( This method also make it possible to serve everyone at the same time.) Buttermilk powder is available in most supermarkets and it generally located near the dried-milk products or in the baking aisle. Left over buttermilk powder, which can be used in a number of baking applications, can be dept in the refrigerator for up to a year. Seltzer or club soda give these waffles a light texture that would otherwise be provided by whipped egg whites. ( avoid sparkling water such as perrier- it’s not bubbly enough) use a freshly opened container for maximum lift. Serve Waffles with butter and warmed maple syrup.
