Harry's roadhouse: Blue cornmeal waffles

  • 210g blue cornmeal
  • 210g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 500 ml buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 75ml melted butter, plus more for brushing
  • Maple syrup, for serving
  • Desired topping, for serving
1) For great pancakes and waffles there are a few simple rules to follow: always mix the dry ingredients first, cornmeal, flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar.

2) Mix the wet ingredients separately: buttermilk, eggs and melted butter, then fold into the dry ingredients. Do not over mix the batter, or your pancakes and waffles will be tough. Mix until the ingredients are just barely combined.

3) Preheat your waffle iron and brush with butter, add batter and cook according to manufacturer's directions. Top with butter and maple syrup and serve with your favourite topping. We like sliced bananas or strawberries.
