Adapted from The Rustic Table Cookbook
1/2 cup quick cook grits (not instant)
6 tablespoons butter, unsalted and cubed
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
In a medium sauce pan bring 2 cups of water to a simmer. Once water starts to simmer add in butter. Bring to a boil then whisk in grits. Stir girts frequently until thickened and creamy about 8 -10 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, stir in buttermilk and eggs.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda. Add flour mixture to the grits mixture until just combined.
Cook waffles in a preheated waffle maker (or iron) until golden brown.
I used a waffle maker to make these. Each waffle took about 1/2 cup of batter, which was poured in the center of the iron and took about 3 minutes each to cook.
Serve immediately with your favorite syrup or if your like the folks in my house..powdered sugar.
