Buttermilk Waffles and Coconut Syrup


Rainy Saturdays are great for brunch. I'm always on the lookout for new recipes for waffles, pancakes, french toast etc. I love breakfast food but not in the early morning! So I often cook breakfast for dinner; a few favorites include omelets, breakfast burritos, quiche and any kind of muffin or coffee cake.
I think after a little blog surfing I have found a few new favorites. The Buttermilk Waffles come from My Kitchen Cafe and the delicious Coconut Syrup comes from The Sisters Cafe. These are great blogs, check them out. In the meantime try these delicious favorites.

Classic Buttermilk Waffles
(From King Arthur Flour Baking Companion)
Beat together:
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
2 teaspoons vanilla
Whisk:
1 3/4 cup flour
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
Combine wet and dry ingredients just till smooth.


Coconut Buttermilk Syrup
3/4 cup buttermilk

Cook until sugar is dissolved and boil 1 minute, stir in:
1 teaspoon coconut flavoring

Delicious on waffles, pancakes, french toast or just by the spoonful!!
