The best cornmeal waffles recipe is the perfect option if you’re looking for a waffle that’s not too sweet, and perfectly delicious! Keep reading for ideas on how to enjoy these waffles.
After talking to a few friends, it sounds like not everyone has ever even had a cornmeal waffle. So take this as your sign to give it a try. We love using this recipe to make something like chicken and waffles because these waffles aren’t as sweet as your typical waffle.
When you get started, you’ll notice that this waffle dough is a little thicker than you might be used to. Don’t worry, that is exactly what you want when making this recipe.
After you’ve combined the ingredients, you’ll want to let the dough sit for 5 minutes. This allows time for the baking powder to activate. This is the perfect time to heat your waffle maker. (Phi has this one and uses it all the time!)
If you loved the idea of chicken and waffles, all you need to do is buy some breaded chicken tenders and serve them with these cornmeal waffles – always a hit with the kids! Or if sweeter is more your thing, try serving with syrup and/or your favorite jam or jelly.
When making waffles, we always like to make extra for later in the week! This recipe is great for freezing. Simply cool waffles and put them in a freezer safe bag. The waffles will store well in the freezer for up to three months. And if you’re looking for sweeter waffles to freeze, try this recipe.
