Basic Traditional Homemade Waffles Recipe

We got a waffle maker and my husband’s mom shared the best waffle recipe with us using ingredients we always have on hand. It’s so fun to crank up the waffle maker on a weekend morning and start mixing up the batter. This recipe makes four gigantic waffles and they are so good! This will definitely be in regular rotation for weekend breakfast at our house.

Servings: 4


1 3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
3 eggs
6 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 cup milk


In a large mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a separate bowl, lightly beat eggs and melted butter until mixed well. Pour egg and butter mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in milk. Batter will be lumpy.

Spray waffle griddle with a non-stick cooking spray. Fill batter cup to fill line (this came with our Technique round rotating non-stick waffle maker) and pour evenly on waffle maker. On our waffle maker, we used level 5 for cooking heat, closed the lid, rotated the waffle immediately, and the waffle maker beeps when the waffle is ready.

The waffles were perfect. They came out to a beautiful golden brown! So good!

Your Thoughts?

  • I LOVE homemade waffles! I make mine with whole wheat because I have to have them somewhat healthy if I’m gonna pile on the syrup ;)

    • jennifer

      does the wheat change the flavor much? i usually just skip the butter to make myself feel better about the syrup lol.

      • It will change the flavor because whole wheat is heartier and more dense than white flour. I really enjoy whole wheat but some people may think the flavor is too strong. You could also do a combo of the two and eventually ease your way to whole wheat.

        Don’t get me started on how awful white flour is for the body haha. I may never stop ;)
