Waffles with Apple Smoked Bacon


  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 strips of apple smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • maple syrup, jam, or sweetened yogurt



Preheat a waffle iron to medium-high.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and bacon.

In a separate bowl, stir together the vanilla, buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Whisk the liquid mixture into the flour mixture until a batter is formed. Do not over mix the batter.


Brush the inside surface of the iron with butter. Pour in enough batter to lightly cover the surface of the iron to within an inch of the edge. (Note that the batter will spread once the lid is closed.) Cover and cook until the steaming stops or the waffle iron indicates the waffle is done. It should be golden brown and slightly crisp. Repeat until all the batter is gone. (If the waffle iron is well seasoned or nonstick it is not necessary to brush the inner surface each time before cooking the waffles.)


Serve the waffles immediately with warm maple syrup, jam, or sweetened yogurt.
