  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup club soda ice cold
  • 1.5 cups buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • canola oil for cooking


  • Add a little canola oil to your waffle maker, and spread it around with a paper towel to coat.
  • Preheat your waffle maker.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar until fully mixed.
  • In a second bowl, beat together buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Fold in the cold soda water and any mix-ins like cocoa powder or mini chocolate chips.
  • Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon until it's just blended together.
  • Ladle the batter into your waffle maker. Follow your waffle maker instructions for timing.
  • Gently remove from the waffle maker. Keep warm on a baking rack at 190 F while you cook waffles with the remaining batter. If the waffles are softer than desired, place in your toaster to crisp.
