Amish Waffles

These waffles are so crispy and tasty, you wouldn't believe they could get any better but then you add the topping. It's so delicious.—Neil and Jeanne Liechty, Pensacola, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    8 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sifted cake flour
  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, well beaten
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-2/3 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 8 ounces frozen blueberries
  • 8 ounces frozen raspberries
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional


  • Preheat waffle maker. Mix first 7 ingredients in order just until smooth. Bake waffles according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown.
  • Meanwhile, for topping, combine water, sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat; cool. Stir in berries. Serve warm over waffles; if desired, add vanilla ice cream.

Test Kitchen Tip
  • As you can imagine, corn syrup isn't an ingredient Amish cooks would have available to them but it does give the sauce a velvety texture and consistency. You can certainly leave it out, just add additional sugar to your desired sweetness level.

      This is my new favorite waffle recipe. It is very simple to make and my kids love them.

      These were very good. A nice vanilla flavor, and a cake-like texture. I didn't make the topping either.

      This is the best recipe I have found for waffles. They were crispy on the outside and cake like on the inside. They actually had a delicous flavor without any topping. I only made the waffles not the topping. They have been added to my favorite recipe file.

      I made just the waffles for breakfast this morning & they were good enough but not the best I've had.
