Cornmeal Waffles

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 and 3/4 cups white flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs - separated
  • 2 and 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
Mix well together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks.

Add buttermilk and butter, and stir to blend. Combine with the flour mixture and mix well. Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry, and slowly add the sugar, beating until it's absorbed.

Stir a third of the whites into the flour mixture and gently fold the remaining whites in. Spoon 1/2 cup of waffle batter in a greased hot waffle iron. Bake until golden.

Cornmeal Waffles

The cornmeal gives these waffles a heartier texture and just a subtle corn flavor. They go very well with warm maple syrup.

Tasted great w/the gritty texture of cornmeal that I love. Did not rise much at all in waffle maker, but tasted good enough that my perfectionist young children didn't complain of them being "broke".

I had cornmeal waffles at Hell's Kitchen in Minneapolis, MN. They are outstanding!
