1/2 cup dark beer

Scoop batter into a preheated waffle iron.
Bake until waffles are golden brown.
Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
All of the ingredients.
Look at those bright orange yolks!
Thanks for the eggs Ladies.
I made the buttermilk by adding 1 Tbs. bottle lime juice to 2% milk.
Then let it stand for a few mins. and add the beer.
Why do you even need to use buttermilk?
The acidic buttermilk reacts with the baking soda/baking powder and results in lighter waffles with a higher rise. Have you ever made a baking soda/vinegar volcano? Same idea - poof!
I threw a few chocolate chips into the batter.
Nice and golden.
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
