So, I found out the secret ingredient to Waffle House waffles. Half and Half!
I went there the other day and the waffles tasted like crap. I asked the server what happened! She said that they ran out of half and half, so they had to use buttermilk!
Now, you and I BOTH know that buttermilk does not make pancakes taste bad. So, it MUST be that it is the half and half that makes the Waffle House waffles taste good!
So, of course I went home and tested it. I used the fastest pancake recipe I could find:
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 teaspoon of salt
I used half and half instead and those things tasted like freakin' GOURMET pancakes. Well, maybe not gourmet - but they were SUPER good.
Try it and see :).
