I was blown away at the taste of these ‘made-from-scratch’ kamut buttermilk waffles! They are so crisp and a beautifully brown on the outside while tender and moist in the center. Fresh out of the hot waffle iron with butter and warm maple syrup. Just the way I like them!
For years and years I have been using a popular ‘convenience’ prepared pancake/waffle mix that just required measuring in some water, stirring it up and spooning it into the hot waffle iron. Oh, my goodness, what we sacrifice for convenience!
After making my first batch of these kamut buttermilk waffles I was so impressed that I had to stir up a batch of the package mix to make a side-by-side comparison. What a difference in taste, texture and flavor. The waffles from the packaged mix were tough and chewy and lacking in flavor. The kamut buttermilk waffles were tender, crisp and tasted so much better! Another huge bonus….. our kamut buttermilk waffles are made of good wholesome ingredients, they do not have any added fortifiers, preservatives and un-pronounceable chemicals.
To make these waffles we used stone ground kamut flour, whole grain oat flour and ground flax seed. Fresh eggs and real buttermilk were added along with a bit of coconut oil and a touch of honey. They are crisp, tender and tasty!
Yes, as compared to the ‘add water and stir’ packaged mix, it did take a few minutes longer to put these ‘made-from-scratch’ waffles together, but it is so worth it! I love these waffles and have been reformed. They are addictive and now I need to restrain myself from having waffles for breakfast every morning!
