I love waffles. A LOT. I love those little machines at the hotel that serve the waffles. It wasn’t a great hotel (to me) unless they served waffles, and the waffles were good. So homemade waffles are a treat at our house.
These waffles are super delicious. They crisp up in the waffle maker while cooking. Once they are brown, they are done and ready to serve.
And see on our video how you can add a little strip of bacon and have bacon waffles. Soooo good.
This recipe makes 5-6 waffles on our waffle maker.
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1 stick melted butter
2 teaspoon vanilla
best homemade waffles
Heat up your waffle maker.
In a medium size bowl, mix the flour and baking powder.
In another bowl mix the egg, milk and vanilla. While mixing the milk will get bubbly. This is ok, you are getting some air into the mix. We mix about 2 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.
Add the sugar and mix.
Pour in the melted butter and mix.
Mix gently until combined.
Let set for a few minutes to allow the baking powder to bubble and add air into the mix.
Add in enough mix into the waffle maker to make a waffle (my waffle maker takes 3/4 cup per waffle)
Cook until golden brown.
Remove and repeat until all waffles are made.
Serve with butter, maple syrup or fresh fruit.
Want to take your recipe up a notch? Add a piece of bacon into the batter, on the waffle maker. It cooks INTO the waffle and tastes so good as the flavors marry and mix together.
Serve with hash brown casserole.
Adding bacon really does make your waffles taste delicious.
Letting your waffle batter rest, allows it to have time to general bubbles making them light and fluffy.
Over filling your waffle maker will cause your batter to over flow. The batter expands, so use less than you think you need.
