  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup butter melted and cooled
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a large mixing bowl, sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cardamom together. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla extract. Whisk briskly for 1-2 minutes or beat with an electric mixer on high speed for about a minute.
  • Pour wet ingredients into the dry and stir until nearly smooth. It's okay if a few lumps remain. The batter will be thick.
  • Preheat the waffle maker. Add ¼ - ⅓ cup batter per waffle to hot waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes.
    Repeat this step until batter is gone.


To make ahead: Cook waffles according to recipe instructions. Once waffles are cooled, place a sheet of wax paper between each waffle, place waffles in a tightly-sealed gallon freezer bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Reheat waffles in a toaster or oven.
