Waffles are delicious and fun to make. They aren’t as easy to put together as French toast or pancakes because they require a special waffle making device, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll enjoy making them and love the waffles you make. Here is a great simple waffle recipe that you can use to make waffles at home. Before you know it, you’ll be a waffle-making expert!

If you’re trying to save money, there are waffle irons for less than $25. If you’re a professional cook, or wish to be one, you can purchase a high-end waffle iron as well. Does it produce better waffles? That’s up to you to find out!
A good homemade waffle recipe shouldn’t be complicated. Follow the steps carefully if you want to know how to make waffles quickly and easily. These are the best waffles, in my opinion.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
First, preheat your waffle iron to the hottest setting or according to the instructions of the waffle iron. It’s best to ensure your iron is thoroughly heated through by turning it on before you start making the waffle recipe.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, balking powder, and salt. Stir to combine completely. Set this bowl aside.
In a separate bowl, begin whisking the eggs and then add in the sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until a batter forms. It should be mixed thoroughly, but don’t beat it and over-mix.
When the batter is fully prepared, spray both sides of the waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray. This will make sure the waffles don’t stick and that they get nice and crisp all around.
Pour approximately 1/2 cup of batter into the waffle iron and close it. Some batter may seep out of the edges of the waffle iron. That’s fine. The first waffle will be somewhat of an experiment. After that, you’ll have a better idea of how much batter to pour in.
The waffle iron should have a light indicator to tell you that the waffle is finished. Once it’s done, open the waffle iron and remove the waffle with a pair of tongs.
Waffles taste best made to order. Serve them up immediately as they come out of the waffle iron. If you can’t serve them immediately, keep them warm under a lid or in the oven on warm.
Serve the waffles hot with butter and syrup, whipped cream, ice cream, fruit, nuts, or other toppings.
