Buttermilk Corn Waffles - Celebrate a bright new day with these tangy buttermilk corn waffles. Gild the lily with a little honey butter.

I’ve been on a waffle kick the last few weeks. I think we’ve had them about ten times in the last month or so. It helps that I have a waffle maker I love. It’s a “fun food” that I can make it bulk, plus it lends itself to no added sugar.

Lately I’ve been tinkering with a cornbread style waffle. First I tried it with cornmeal and whole wheat pastry flour. Then, I found corn flour on clearance at Sprouts and tried that with the pastry flour. Then, I made it with all three, and that’s where I landed: whole wheat pastry flour, corn flour, and cornmeal. There are never any left, so it’s a keeper of a recipe.

(If you can’t find whole wheat pastry flour, you can use an equal amount of unbleached, all-purpose flour. See notes below on sourcing.)

There’s a tang from the buttermilk. I noticed that this can vary between brands of buttermilk. If you prefer less of a tang, you can substitute milk for some of the buttermilk.

I sweetened these with both maple and honey and both were very tasty. The kids were shocked when I started drizzling honey on them, but I don’t really see how this is different than maple syrup. Plus, it’s what we do to cornbread, so why not?

The waffles are also tasty with honey butter. Just mix 1 tablespoon of honey into 4 tablespoons softened butter. Yummy, yum, yum.

This makes a lot of waffles! If you don’t have six children to feed, you will have extras to freeze for later.

  1. I need to get my waffle maker into a more accessible spot! I’ve been thinking of them already as I’m playing with sourdough bread and keep dumping starter to feed – but if I had my act together I’d make sourdough waffles! Cornmeal waffles sound like the ultimate happy combo – will be trying this soon! Hmmm – need to look for corn flour

  2. Ohhhh this sounds soooooo good! I will definitely try them this weekend.

    Whenever I make a cornmeal type bread, I always like to throw in corn kernels (either fresh, frozen or canned, whatever I have on hand…)

    I make these and add jalapenos and very cold cream cheese cubes my family likes to eat them during football games as an appetizer.

  4. Yum!
    We like cormeal waffles with chicken pot pie “filling” on top for an easy dinner.

  5. Where do you buy the sunflower oil and what price are you able to get it for? Thanks!

  6. I made these to put in the freezer for a quick morning breakfast. Tasted yummy,-had to taste test them first! I used coconut oil and they seemed to turn out well.
