the secret to making your store bought waffle mix taste like homemade

My mom taught me a secret about waffles that we use all the time now. Sometimes it really is just easier to use a really yummy mix (we love the pancake mix from Sam’s club by Daily Chef), but then they don’t taste homemade. SO! Here’s Our Secret Waffle Recipe.

It’s all about a little buttermilk and almond extract! That’s it. Just add it to the basic recipe substituting buttermilk for 1/4 of the liquid and adding that almond extract. You can’t tell what it is that makes them awesome, but it changes everything!
