I’m so excited to share the best waffle recipe you will ever make. No Seriously. They are crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. You will NEVER just simply use your pancake batter ever again! I just know you and your family will love them as much as we do.
This waffle recipe is pretty basic, but the process is what makes the difference. I put the baking powder in with the eggs (and use A LOT of butter).
I actually came about it rather serendipitous. In trying a new version of my recipe and, not even thinking about it, tossed the baking powder into the eggs, mixed it up, walked away to go grab the flour and when I came back, I had this thick fluffy mixture. After adding the rest of my dry ingredients, milk & butter, mixed it all up, a voilà! Thick batter that turned into crisp, yet fluffy waffles.
Everything on this list I have and do use for this recipe.
Waffle Iron – I have the Oster DuraCeramic Double Flip Waffle Maker but I beleive they no longer make that one.
Whisk – I like the OXO 11″ Balloon Whisk
Ice Cream Scoop (I find this is much easier than a spoon, but you can use a spoon as well)
OK, now for the recipe.
It’s a pretty simple recipe. The ingredients are as follows:
4 large eggs
2 Tbsp baking powder
4 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick of melted butter
2 cups milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
Whisk up the eggs. Add the the baking powder and continue whisking until completely mixed together; set aside
In a separate bowl mix together salt, flour and sugar.
3. By now, your eggs should be thick, frothy and stiff you should have foamy like eggs on your whisk (see image above).
4. Next mix together your egg mixture with the dry ingredients, milk and melted butter all together until just combined. (don’t over Mix)
5. Drop about 1/4-1/3 cup of batter into your waffle iron (I use an ice cream scoop to achieve the right amount) and cook until done. I have a rotating waffle iron that cooks 2 at once and has 3 different settings. so it makes cooking them really easy. But if you’ve never used your iron, do a tester waffle, where you check every so often to figure out cooking time.
6. Once all cooked up, enjoy with syrup, whipped cream, fruit, chocolate chips or anything else you want to top it with!
These waffles freeze amazingly! I separate them into freezer bags with parchment paper in between. When the kids are ready to eat them, they just stick them in the toaster, but make sure you cook them in the lighter side, or they will burn in the toaster.
When you’re done, take a picture!
