I haven’t made a lot of waffles in my days – I’d much prefer an egg. But this recipe, might just convince me otherwise. I was looking for a basic make-at-home waffle mix, because my kids and my husband love waffles. I didn’t want anything fancy, just something that was good, easy, wholesome and not Bisquick or Eggos. This would be it. I also appreciate that it’s made with real butter and not vegetable oil – I think it makes a huge difference in taste. And when I say it’s made with butter – it’s MADE with butter. In fact there is so much butter, I think they’d be more aptly named buffles. . .and good buffles they are!

- 1¾ cup flour, all-purpose
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 3 eggs
- ¼ cups to 1 cup (1/2 to 2 sticks) butter, melted - use only ¼ cup if you’re looking for a “reduced-fat” version – and if you’re looking for a crunchier, more flavor-filled waffle go for the gusto with 1 cup. I compromised and used ½ cup (1 stick). Basically – the more butter, the crunchier.
- 1½ cups milk
- Preheat your waffle iron. (Waffle iron deals on Amazon)
- In one bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar and salt). In another bowl, whisk together eggs, butter and milk.
- Make a little well in the dry ingredients. Pour in wet ingredients. Whisk!
- Don’t whisk too much. Just enough to combine ingredients. It might look a little lumpy, that’s okay.
- Follow the instructions for your waffle iron. I use a measuring cup to scoop batter onto waffle maker. Then it beeps when it’s cooked. It’s pretty easy.
- Top with any number of things – more butter, syrup, strawberries, whip cream, blueberries. . .
