Recipe by Eshun Mott


  • 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 2 tbsp cornmeal

  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

  • 60 g shredded Black Forest ham, (about 2/3 cup)

  • 2/3 cup grated cheddar


  • Combine flour, cornstarch, cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda in a large bowl and stir until uniform. Make a slight well in the centre.

  • Crack eggs into the well in the dry ingredients and pour buttermilk and butter overtop. Stir ingredients with a fork until incorporated and you have a slightly lumpy batter. Stir in ham and cheese.

  • Preheat waffle iron and lightly grease with vegetable oil, if necessary.

  • Using about ⅓ cup of batter per waffle (depending on the configuration of your waffle maker), pour in batter. Cook for 3 min or until crisp and golden.

  • Serve with maple syrup or Tomato Jam.
