Cornmeal Buttermilk Waffles with Honey Butter

Cornmeal Buttermilk Waffles with Honey Butter \\ PasstheSushi.com

It’s hard to be grumpy while staring down a fresh pile of warm waffles slathered in butter and dripping with syrup. Actually, it may be down right impossible. So, if you have less than lovely morning birds ignoring the alarm, wake them up with the sweet smell of these deliciously crispy cornmeal buttermilk waffles to sooth the sloth away. And if you really want to seal the deal, toss some bacon onto the pile and mention that the quantity is limited. That’s before you even hint at the amazing honey butter you whipped up just for the day.

If you’re cruel like me, you will then make those not-so-early birds play the very important role of syrup pourer in which they have to stand by patiently applying the syrup to said amazing buttermilk waffles without digging right in ;) Let that honey butter melt, baby. Let it melt.

Awkward, no? Melting butter comment gone too far? Meh, roll with it.

  1. Well color me all sorts of gluttonous because I want that stack … really badly. I was happy enough with the stack of waffles, but then you had to mention the honey butter and that really caught my attention. It looks amazing, Kita.

  2. Holy TUESDAY. That drippy syrup has totally sent me over the edge. Can we please just schedule a breakfast together? You make these and I’ll bring a cute little baby for entertainment!

  3. I rarely add butter to my pancakes or waffles, but I think I must in this case. I love honey butter!

  4. Love these. I always want more chocolate in the mornings :)

  5. These waffles are the stuff breakfast dreams are made of. Gorgeous photographs too!

  6. So yummy!! My husband usually makes buttermilk pancakes on the weekends for our kids, but we recently starting taking out the trusty waffle maker. We will have to try these soon. Especially with that honey butter. Thanks for sharing! Pinned :)

  7. Can’t. Stop. Staring.

  8. I agree! You cannot be grumpy with this!

  9. These look SO GOOD! I will have to make them AND photograph them, just because I love the sad look on my fiance’s face when he has to stare at the food he wants to eat while waiting for me to take a picture…. the syrup pouring is just the ‘icing on the cake’… or should I say ‘syrup on the waffle’?

    Yum!

  10. These look amazing. Really, you had me at waffles, but still. Honey butter even, haven’t tried that but it’s good on everything else, so should be just as good or better on a waffle! =P
