Default Grandma's Waffles

Real, real hard to beat.

Grandma’s Buttermilk Waffles
Vintage 1930 (Made Griswold Waffle Irons Famous!)

1 cup flour (soft-like White Lily)
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg separated
tsp salt
1 cup thick real buttermilk (Not Sealtest)
tsp baking soda
2 tbsp melted butter (Plus a little??)
(Secret Ingredient) 1/3 cup water

Start waffle iron warming on low. Beat egg white until stiff. Mix dry ingredients in med. bowl or 1 qt. pitcher. Beat egg yoke & combine with buttermilk. Pour into flour with water, mix, add butter & mix. Don’t over mix. Fold in egg white. Turn up heat to medium high. When water drops bounce in hot waffle iron spray lightly with veg. oil (NOT Pam), add about cup batter onto cool side and cook approximately 2 minutes per side. It should fall out when done. Add 30 second intervals if sticking and use a fork if required.
Hold in 215 F (102 C) oven, uncovered. Makes four 8” waffles.

Pecan chips are good. Sprinkle in iron first, then pour. Do not use vanilla or malt.
1 pureed peach or 1 small applesauce are also good. Banana???? Crushed bacon????

Enjoy,
Hilditch

Looks like a nice easy recipe. Time to fire up the McClary.

That is not too far off from a recipe from a 1905 catalog ad for the Alfred Andreson Heart Shaped Waffle Iron. I used this recipe to make my first batch of waffles on my Alfred Andreson Heart Shaped Waffle Iron.

2 cups flour
2 cups milk
1/2 cup melted butter
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (whites and yolks beaten separately)

They didn't include any mixing instructions, but I assume they would pretty much match the order shown in your recipe with the exception of brushing on some bacon grease instead of spraying on veg oil.

The only differences I detect would be in flavor (big difference), texture and color.

I would also expect yours to be lighter and moister, with the baking powder and buttermilk.

That combination has never made any sense to me. To me, waffles are for syrup. That's why they have all those little syrup traps. Chicken is for potatoes.
