Preheat your waffle maker.
Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour the buttermilk into a liquid measuring cup and add the eggs; whisk together until combined. Add the buttermilk mixture into the dry ingredients, along with the butter; whisk until smooth.
Brush your waffle maker with about a teaspoon of butter and add 1/3 cup of batter. Cook about 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly golden (I just wait until my waffle maker’s green light comes on, signaling it’s done). Serve with butter, maple syrup (or honey) and whatever topping strikes your fancy: berries, sliced bananas, toasted pecans…whatever you like!
If you have a cinnamon grinder (which you can buy in the spice section of the grocery store), grind some cinnamon on top just before eating-that makes it even better!
DAIRY-FREE VERSION: Substitute almond, rice, or soy milk for the buttermilk, and vegetable (or coconut) oil for the butter. If you want to make it totally vegan, use egg substitute in place of the eggs.
