Who doesn’t love a good waffle? I’ve played around over the years combining several different recipes until this one was born and it’s a keeper! I make them in large batches and freeze them in freezer bags so we have a quick breakfast whenever we want them. Just pop them in the toaster (or microwave for 30-45) seconds and you’re good to go! Top with berries and whipped cream for an extra delicious treat.
If you don’t have a waffle maker and are in the market for one, this is what I have and have been using regularly for the last 8 years. It really held up! It’s an all in one that is also a grill and panini press with waffle plates we ordered separately. Fun fact? It was the only way we could cook during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. We hooked this baby up to the generator and made the best of it!
Easy Weekend Waffles
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsps baking powder
- 1/4 tsp fine salt
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk (I prefer to use whole, but you can use any fat content you like.)
- 2 Tbsp melted unsalted butter, cooled slightly
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your waffle maker according to the manual included. (I have a cuisinart model and set it to griddle at 360 degrees.)
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with a fork or whisk. Add the butter, milk, and vanilla (if using). Creating a well in the flour mixture, slowly add the wet mixture into the well. Stirring to combine with a fork or whisk.
- Spray the waffle maker plates with cooking spray. If using the same 4 waffle model I use, add batter to the griddle using about 1/4-1/13 cup batter for each grid. Close the waffle maker and allow them to cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Repeat until all the batter is used. Enjoy!
