Favorite Buttermilk Waffles (with Whole Grain option)

Buttermilk makes baked products divine, and this is the way I use it in waffles. White whole wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour can be subbed to boost nutrition. Lazy soul that I am, I mix the batter in a blender and use that as a pitcher to pour them conveniently. I freeze extra waffles for a quick into-the-toaster breakfast. Just add maple syrup, butter and some ham or bacon and you’ve got a wonderful weekend breakfast. (This is the buttermilk and whole grain version of my Best Crispy Waffles on this site - see "Useful Links" below.)
