Skill Level:

Easy

Ingredients

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • finely grated zest of an orange
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Syrup:
  • 1 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

How to Make It

1.

In a small bowl or jar, combine the buttermilk and orange zest; whisk or shake and set aside for a few minutes.

2.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

3.

Add the buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla and whisk just until combined.

4.

To make the syrup, warm the maple syrup and cranberries in a small saucepan until the berries pop.

5.

Preheat a waffle iron and brush with oil, if you like.

6.

Cook about 1/3 cup of batter at a time, according to the manufacturer’s directions, and serve warm. (Waffles can be kept on a wire rack set on a baking sheet in a 250˚F oven while you cook the rest – the rack will keep them from getting steamy and soggy on the bottom.)
