Traditional Waffles Recipe

Once I made these light and tasty waffles for my family, they never let me use a prepackaged mix again! For that reason, I usually bake a double batch and freeze the leftovers. Then, on hurried mornings, I just pop them in the toaster for a quick meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2-1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil


  • 1. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Mix eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Yield: 8-10 waffles (about 6-1/2 inches).

"In my opinion, these waffles were lacking in flavor. I added some sugar, to improve the taste, but that didn't do much. I think I should have added more (I only added a couple tablespoons)."

"A little tip I learned a long time ago was to separate my eggs, beat the egg whites until stiff and fold in - it gives your waffles a lot of fluffy texture and a little crispness."

"I tried this recipe and found it to be a good foundation to start off. I substituted whole wheat flour and added vanilla, cinnamon. I also have made with choc. chips. Again a great basic recipe to play around with!"
