Waffles of Insane Greatness

They are called this because, 1- they are incredibly good and 2-that's what everyone else calls them in the blogosphere. But let me just tell you...they are mmm, mmm good. These are my hubby's absolute favorite waffles in the world. They are crispy on the outside and fluffy goodness on the inside. They are pretty easy to put together, but just know- they do have to sit for 30 minutes before you can cook them. So plan accordingly. I doubled the recipe below- so it will make about 10 waffles.

Here's what you'll need:
½ cup all-purpose flour
½ cup cornstarch
1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs, lightly beaten

½ tsp. vanilla extract

In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Set aside.

In a small bowl, mix the milk, buttermilk, oil, egg and vanilla. *Note* If you don't have buttermilk, a little lemon juice mixed with milk will work- just be sure that you let the two sit together for a few minutes to make it buttermilk.

Combine the flour mixture and the liquid mixture until just combined (there may still be a few lumps) and let sit for 30 minutes.

Pour into your waffle maker, wait until they are golden brown and enjoy!
