  3. In a separate bowl combine all the wet ingredients - Buttermilk, Milk, Oil, Butter and Vanilla. Stir to mix and add it to the dry ingredients.

Recipe Notes
  1. Check the instructions on your Waffle Maker before you start making waffles. Make sure to pre-heat the waffle maker before starting to make waffles.
  2. The first waffle that you make is always a suicidal waffle. Adjust the amount of batter and colour settings until you get your desired waffle. I use about 1/2 cup of batter in each cavity.
  3. You can absolutely use either buttermilk or milk in this recipe. Same goes for oil and butter. Feel free to read the importance of each ingredient from the paragraph titles Waffle Ingredients from above.
  4. Just like how you are not supposed to open up the oven door whilst the cake is baking, the same rule applies to waffle making as well. Do not open the lid prematurely. 
  5. The waffle on its own is not sweet at all. This makes it perfect for breakfast wherein you can top it up with more additional flavourful toppings like Nutella, peanut butter, strawberries, fruit compote etc.
