Homemade Waffles

I tried another recipe before this one that just didn't work out. So I decided to try again. This time I got delicious results! Everyone loved them! I highly recommend these waffles!

Homemade Waffles
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
4 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups of milk (warmed slightly)
4 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Break up any lumps of sugar and combine well. In another bowl, beat eggs well. Then add milk, butter and vanilla extract. Mix well and add to flour mixture. Whisk together. I used a 1/4 cup measuring cup to make my waffles. I have a square waffle maker that does 2 at a time and 1/4 cup to a little over did well for me. It will vary how much you use per waffle depending on your waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. Enjoy!

Placing these on a cooling rack will help them stay crisp after cooking. I usually just lay them in a plate (with soggy results) and this time decided to try the cooling rack (like you'd use for cookies). It worked great!

I got 12 waffles out of this recipe. We had no leftovers. So you might want to double it and put away some for later in the week. These were really good! You could add chocolate chips and have chocolate chip waffles. Those would be yummy too!

Happy eating!

Thanks for the cooling rack tip ~ we usually just put them on a plate too and they end up soggy. Will definitely have to give it a try!

Thanks for the tip about the cooling rack. I always wondered why my waffles were soft sometimes.

Thanks for posting this recipe...I have been frustrated the past couple of weekends when I went to make our weekend waffles and didn't have any mix....this was declicious! :) And I made extra and froze them for future weekends! Thanks again, I enjoy your blog!
