Cuisinart Waffle Maker Review & Kait’s Recipe

I love breakfast. Breakfast for breakfast, breakfast for lunch, breakfast for dinner. Making it, eating it, drooling on it, I’m not picky.

Sears on Robson was having a sale last week, so I jumped at the opportunity to expand my breakfast making repertoire by purchasing a Cuisinart Waffle Maker.


On sale for $37.49, this Classic Waffle Maker was a great find. On Saturday morning I used the following recipe to make 6 fantastic golden brown, fluffy waffles. I should mention that partial success with this recipe is due to the fact that the waffle maker I bought has a light system – red is lit while the waffle is cooking, and green is lit when the waffle is golden brown (at setting 3.)

Kait’s Less-Guilt Buttermilk Waffles



  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1+1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1+1/2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 large free range eggs

Method: (yields 6 medium sized waffles)

  1. Combine milk and vinegar in a large mixing bowl, and let stand for 10 minutes (this is a quick & easy way to create buttermilk.)
  2. Add olive oil & eggs to the bowl, whisk.
  3. Add remaining dry ingredients to bowl, whisk until smooth.
  4. Coat waffle iron with non-stick spray, preheat to setting 3 (or a medium setting.)
  5. Scoop waffle batter onto iron in 1/2 cup increments, spreading evenly.
  6. Heat until golden brown & serve.

Waffles can be kept warm in the oven at 200 degrees or frozen until needed

Happy Eating,
