How to make great pancakes and waffles.
There are a few simple rules to follow: always mix the dry ingredients first, cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Mix the wet ingredients separately, buttermilk, eggs and melted butter, then fold into dry.
Do not over mix the batter, or your pancakes and waffles will be tough. Mix until the ingredients are just barely combined.
Preheat your waffle iron and brush with butter, add batter and cook according to manufacturer's directions.
