Buckwheat Waffles

Total Time:
55 min

36 waffles

  • 88 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 45 ounces buckwheat flour
  • 24 ounces sugar
  • 1 .7 ounces baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 5 quarts buttermilk
  • 36 ounces melted butter
  • 24 eggs, separated
  • Cooking spray
  • Mix the flours, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda together. Put in a mixing bowl and turn on speed one, using the paddle attachment. Quickly add the buttermilk. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and the paddle with a rubber spatula. Slowly pour the melted butter into the bowl while the mixer is running. Slowly pour the egg yolks into the bowl while the mixer is running. Transfer this batter to another bowl. Whip the egg whites to medium peaks in a new bowl with the whisk attachment of your mixer. Fold in one-third of the whites with a rubber spatula. Now fold in the remaining whites.

  • To cook the waffles, turn a waffle iron on to medium heat. Spray the waffle iron with cooking spray. Scoop batter onto the iron, enough to fill. Close and cook for 2 1/2 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Repeat.

Good recipe. I scaled the ingredients by 1/6. The only substitute I made was using buttermilk powder and a 50/50 mix of milk and buttermilk for the liquid. The waffles turned out great. To scale the baking powder, 1.7 oz is 48 grams. For the home cook, you can avoid some mess by whipping the egg whites first, transferring the whipped whites to another bowl, then doing everything else in the mixer bowl. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It is a shame FN didn't scale it down for us. item not reviewed by moderator and published
