Baked Explorations, by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, p. 16
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup malt powder
2 tbsp firmly packed light brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 1/2 cups buttermilk
6 tbsp (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
Maple syrup, butter and/or chocolate chips for serving
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F. Prepare a waffle iron with cooking spray or vegetable oil per manufacturer’s instructions.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, malt powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs slightly, add the buttermilk and butter, and whisk again.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and pour the buttermilk mixture into it. Fold the ingredients into the wet ever so gently until just combined – there will be some visible lumps. Cook the waffles according to the manufacturer’s instructions for your iron. Generally speaking, you will use 1/4 to 1/2 cup batter per waffle (depending on the size of your waffle iron). Cook the waffles until they are golden brown or a little darker. Transfer the waffles directly to a rack in your oven to keep them warm while you make the rest. Serve immediately with maple syrup, butter, and chocolate chips.
Makes about 10 waffles.

OMG! The Baked Boys posted a link to my Maple Bundt Cake on their FaceBook page and Matt Lewis tweeted it, too! I was so surprised since i modified the recipe. I didn’t even realize it until Sheri told me! Always happy to “take one for the team!” LOL! Great visibility for all of us!
They loved your transformation to a Bundt as much as we all did!
I’m ready for these waffles. I’ll probably end up eating them plain, I’m boring that way when it comes to waffles. Possibly some maple syrup.
Thinking these would be interesting as a dessert…. with whipped cream and crushed Whoppers? And a chocolate drizzle?
Well, if anyone is considering skipping this recipe, DON’T! These are great waffles. Enjoyed them this morning.
