  • Waffle Iron

  • Add in egg, beating until well combined.
  • Beat in half and half, milk, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  • Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Mix briefly.

  • Add 1 cup batter to your hot waffle iron and let it cook until crispy and golden brown.


Some claim that this tastes better after a good 12-hour chill. Frankly, if we wanted to wait around that long for our waffles, we would be making a Liege-style yeast-based waffle. Just sayin'.
