Oscar Night Waffles

An odd tradition in our house is to eat waffles on Oscar night! I’m not sure how it started… The best part for me is that I can bypass menu planning to celebrate and watch the red carpet. The only thing I did this year is pick a new waffle recipe to try. πŸ™‚

These waffles were SO easy to make- the eggs aren’t even separated. I honestly couldn’t tell the difference! This recipe was adapted from the New York Times, contributed by Melissa Clark. I added whole wheat flour and blueberries. I used buttermilk instead of yogurt as well. I doubled the recipe, after all, it was dinner.Β The leftover waffles were delicious reheated in the toaster. I hope it’s not bad to eat waffles for breakfast the morning after eating them for dinner!

Yield: about 10 waffles

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, more for waffle iron
  • 1 cup/120 grams all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup/120 grams whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon/15 grams granulated or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon/8 grams baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon/5 grams fine sea salt
  • Β½ teaspoon/3 grams baking soda
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, buttermilk, or sour cream
  • 1 cup milk (I used 1 percent)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, optional
  • pure maple syrup, for serving
  1. Melt butter either on the stove or in the microwave. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, milk, melted butter, and eggs.
  4. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients.
  5. Fold in blueberries, if using.
  6. Preheat a waffle iron and, using a pastry brush or paper towel, lightly coat with butter. (I used cooking oil spray.)
  7. Cook waffles (using about 1/2 cup batter per waffle) until golden and crisp. (I cook them for 5 minutes.) Butter the iron in between batches as needed.
  8. Serve waffles immediately as they are ready, or keep them warm in a 200 degree oven or warming drawer until ready to serve.

Note: If you don’t have yogurt (or sour cream or buttermilk), substitute another 1 cup of milk mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar.

  1. I love waffles and can eat them any time of day or night and if I have for dinner love them in the morning too!! They look great.

  2. I could eat waffles anytime! What a fun tradition!

  3. A great tradition I’d say – I usually watch the red carpet entries, and then I switch off the tv as I can’t stand the commercials and interruptions. Love those waffles.

  4. I don’t mind not having a waffle iron until I see recipes like yours here. You’re making it hard for me to resist going out and getting one.

  5. That sounds like a great tradition Josette. Your waffles turned out great!

  6. That’s great you have dinner already picked out each year for the Oscars! I never know what we are going to eat. The waffles looks scrumptious. πŸ™‚
