Classic Waffles Recipe


I’ve been making these Classic Waffles a lot recently, especially when I need to feed a crowd for brunch. You might wonder how often I have a crowd of people for brunch! Well, as it happens, quite a lot in recent months. My turn came up to host our book club meetup and that was one week after my in laws came to stay. Lucky I have this great recipe to rely on!

Start by combining the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat two eggs together in a separate bowl and add milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix well before adding to the dry ingredients. Beat the waffle batter until fully combined. Pour batter into a preheated waffle iron and cook until golden. 

To make Classic Waffles, you will need the following ingredients:

Added some chocolate chips to this and it was great with melted butter and maple syrup.

Nancy Sheely

Very plain I think adding more sugar is a must when it comes to this recipe or it will taste like dough.

Tyler Cephus

My mouth is watering just thinking about how good these were, 5 stars all the way.

Mercy Abramson

Tasty but wanted to make it vegan so ended up swapping the milk for vegan milk and replacing the eggs and butter too.

Leilah Gauze

If you want it to be less plain I'd recommend putting some blueberries inside of the mix and a tsp of cinnamon less if you're not making a lot of them, so good.

Aniya Marquina

WOW not going to make any other kind of breakfast this is the best.

Anne Rolader

I liked the chocolate waffles a lot more than these classic ones sadly, I guess I'm just obsessed with chocolate haha.

Tastier than ego waffles, never buying the frozen crap again instead will invest in this.

Soraya Berlingieri

Wasn't too sure I'd be able to cook these properly but actually managed to nail it on the first shot thanks to the amazingly simple steps.

Bryleigh Luchansky

Though bland they go great with everything even some eggs and bacon on the top.

Leona Eghbali

Very filling and easy to make, swapped out the milk for soy milk instead since I'm lactose.

Ariyah Santago

Please make sure you follow the instructions I accidently added more than a tsp of vanilla extract and it was super bad..

Natalya Longo

Accidently used salted butter instead of unsalted but luckily for me it didn't change the flavor much, still should use unsalted!!

Azalea Labhart

The perfect breakfast to have with some orange juice or coffee and fruit.
