For making a smooth waffle batter, sift the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, powdered buttermilk, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. After you are done with sifting, transfer them into a dry saucepan. In a large size mixing bowl, beat eggs first, and stir in water and melted butter. In the meantime, preheat waffle iron to the required baking temperature. Whisk flour mixture into the liquid concoction. Continue mixing batter until you get a smooth, consistently thick batter base. Use vegetable oil to brush the preheated waffle iron. With a wooden spoon, ladle enough batter onto the waffle iron to fill the slots.
