Medium Bowl
Cooking Spray
Waffle Iron


  • 1 ½ cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tablespoon Softened Butter
  • 2 teaspoon Shortening
  • ½ cup Half and Half
  • ½ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Buttermilk
  • ¼ teaspoon Vanilla Extract


  • Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Stir to combine.
  • Lightly beat the egg in another medium bowl.
  • Add the sugar, butter, and shortening and mix well with an electric mixer until smooth.
  • Add the half and half milk, buttermilk, and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture while beating. Mix only briefly. It's okay if there are small lumps in the batter since over-beating could produce too tough waffles.
  • Cover and chill overnight (You can use batter right away if you like, but a good 12-hour chill makes a better batter).
  • Rub a light coating of vegetable oil on your waffle iron or use a non-stick cooking spray.
  • Preheat the waffle iron. Leave the batter out of the refrigerator to warm up a bit as your waffle iron is preheating.
  • Spoon 1/3 to 1/2 cup batter in iron. Cook 3-4 minutes or until brown
  • Serve it with your favourite topping, be it a Fruit Mix, a Spicy Veggie, or a Great Caramel Syrup. It goes just perfectly with all of it.
