The main difference in these buttermilk brown sugar waffles is right in the recipe title. These waffles use brown sugar rather than the regular granulated sugar. It gives these waffles a deeper color and more depth of flavor with using the brown sugar.

I love a waffle recipe that turns out fabulous and doesn’t require you to whip the egg whites. This happens to be one of those recipes. Buttermilk, butter, and brown sugar are what make these waffles so fabulous.

This recipe starts by whisking the eggs and buttermilk together. Then you slowly whisk in some melted butter followed with the brown sugar. Next you whisk the dry ingredients together in another bowl. This includes the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. All that’s left at this point is to whisk those dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Now you just cook those waffles according to manufacturers instructions. The number of waffles you get will vary on your waffle maker, but you should be able to get about 8 with a regular waffle maker.
