Basic (Half Whole Wheat) Waffles

This is Alton Brown's recipe, and it's seriously good! These waffles are crispy on the outside, which I love. The crispiness held up to syrup too—bonus! They are half whole wheat flour (which I also love), but you can't even tell! I love breakfast for dinner; we're going to start doing it more often!

Basic Waffles

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
3 eggs, beaten
4 Tbsp butter, melted
2 cups buttermilk (or 4 Tbsp lemon juice, filled to 2 cups of milk)
1–2 tsp vanilla, optional

Preheat waffle iron.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. In another bowl beat eggs and melted butter, then add buttermilk. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Ladle batter onto greased waffle iron. Cook waffle until golden on both sides and is easily removed from iron. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 200ºF oven until ready to serve.
