Best Waffle Batter recipe
Description: 

A moist and slightly sweet homemade waffle batter

Yield: 

4-6 servings

Ingredients: 

1 3/4 cups flour*
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1/2 cup oil or melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions: 

1. Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, beat wet ingredients and then add to dry, stirring just until moistened.

3. Cook on pre-heated waffle iron until waffles are browned and test done. I like to set a timer so I don't have to keep checking, or risk forgetting to take the waffles out on time!

Hot fresh homemade waffles, fresh fruit, and freshly whipped cream! Really, few breakfasts can top this one in my opinion! :)

Additional Notes: 

This recipe is from Crystal Paine.

*Crystal notes, "We like to use whole wheat". She also says that this batter can be stored in the refrigerator until needed.

I do think this recipe is better with whole wheat flour. I like to let the batter set for a few minutes before starting to cook the waffles, so it thickens just slightly and isn't as runny.

Tammy's Review: 

This is the easiest waffle batter ever! It's also really tasty! I like the medium sweetness, since our classic waffle recipe has no sugar and our Belgian waffle recipe has a lot of sugar. This is right in the middle, and so easy to make and delicious! If you're in a hurry, this is the one to try!! My rating: 10/10

Good

We normally make Overnight Waffles, but sometimes do not prepare ahead, so for a quick waffle we found this one very good. I did add some salt which was not listed (we use Real Salt) and I used our Cuisinart Belgium Waffle maker. Those two things might make a difference. It browned and crisped nicely on the outside with soft but not doughy inside. No complaints (except was not Overnight Waffles). Thanks Tammy you always come through.

THE WORST EVER!

This made the runniest and most tasteless waffles I have ever made! My waffle iron was on extra high and they were still a gooey mess. And forget about letting the batter 'set a few minutes to thicken' - because it NEVER does! So I added more flour, some oatmeal - kept adding until it was half way decent, because I was NOT wasting the batter. With all that I added - it was just ok. What a disaster of a recipe! And I triple-checked the - ingredients - thinking I must have done something wrong . . . . it was just this awful recipe. And I DID use whole wheat flour by the way . . .

Awful

This recipe is Not good at all. I followed the recipe word for word and the waffles were SUPER oily; my waffle iron was literally Leaking the oil in the butter. The waffles themselves seemed soft and mushy on the inside, even though i left them on the iron for much longer than necessary. They do not brown well at all on the outside. They tasted like flower unless covered fully in syrupy. Do not use this recipe, it was a mistake and a waste of ingredients. the average on this this recipe should not be a 9.0

good

I'm not sure about those listing this as 'terrible' I'm pretty sure none of them followed the SIMPLE and easy recipe. I used whole wheat flour and they were fine. We are trying to chaneg some of our eating habits and let me say for using whole wheat (which is not a favorite in the first place) I would totally make these again. They were light, fluffy, cooked all the way through, golden etc. I think they either 1) don't know how to cook, 2) don't have a proper waffle maker or 3) don't know how to use said waffle maker. Sheesh, my 7yr old can make these.

Yummy!

We have made these several times. We make a huge batch and freeze them. All of my children and husband love them.

Dea M

Cannot figure out why 3 say these are not good. They have the same ingredients as any waffle batter, there is nothing in these that would taste bad, unless you are using rancid oil or butter.

Horrible.

I tried this with my friend and we both agree that it tastes like a bar of soap.. We got so sick of eating them we fed them to the birds and I don't even think that they like them and birds eat pretty much anything. I will not be making these EVER AGAIN.. Waste of time.

Terrible

My family and I do Sunday morning breakfast every week. This week we wanted waffles so I tried this recipe....and NOBODY ate it. Both kids just pushed their plates away (which isn't something they do with waffles) and my husband tried to be polite and say yum but as soon as I tasted them, I told him he didn't have to eat them and he pushed his away too. No good

Best Waffles Ever is Right!!!

Tammy, this was the most amazing waffle recipe I've ever used! I rarely use my waffle iron out of fear of over-flowing it or burning them; however, your recipe was so perfect - nice and thick batter that doesn't run. We really enjoyed our breakfast today because of you! God bless you, dear!

TERRIBLE

This is a terrible, terrible recipe. The waffles do not brown properly because the recipe doesn't call for salt! They were mushy as hell and made a huge horrible mess all over my kitchen!!!!!! DO NOT MAKE THESE WAFFLES!!!!

Great waffles!

I just tried these this morning, and they were fantastic!

I adjusted it slightly, using white whole wheat flour, and Sweetleaf (stevia product) in place of the sugar. The batter was very thick, so I did end up thinning it slightly with a little water, but overall, the waffles turned out perfect, and my kids scarfed them up.

Thank you!

Excellent recipe

I made this recipe & it was fabulous! I used a little more flour (2 cups total), & an additional teaspoon of sugar of because I felt the batter was too thin (I like it thicker) and it was delicious. I poured the batter into the waffle iron & sprinkled pecans on top (pecan waffles are my favorite!) This one is a definite keeper! If you can find pecan extract or vanilla butter & nut extract (the bottle will say "vanilla butter & nut") add a teaspoon if you are making waffles that will have nuts in them like my pecan waffles.

Special breakfast on New Years Day

We got a Waring Pro professional waffle maker from my MIL for Christmas this year. We used the "Best Waffle" recipe this morning and it worked extremely well with no hassles at all for a New Years Day special breakfast (paired with 12 grapes and orange slices for good luck :) ). Thanks again for another wonderful recipe!

Saturday morning treat.

Tammy, I can never get enough of these. It is always a choice of these or PW's pancakes. The waffles have won the last few weekends. I cook them for 2 adults and 5 kids. This weekend I made some with chocolate chips and some plain. They all were good. A big hit with the kids....also quick and easy to mix up.

Easy and Versatile

I made these this morning, adding in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips to please my little boy. They turned out great, and were super easy. Definitely a success. Loved the slightly sweet flavor.

Yummy !

This is the first recipe I try from this blog, and it's very good ! I made some waffles for my 3-year-old son coming back from school and he loved them. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Favorite

My mom always had a waffle recipe where you had to beat egg whites and then fold into your batter. To much trouble for me so I stuck with Eggos. A few years and kids later we got a waffle iron but never found an easy recipe that we all liked until now. This is the best. We make waffles using this batter and our favorites have walnuts or pecans added. My son likes his waffles with cheese and bacon bits. We even used this recipe to make waffles for the men's breakfast at church. Had lots and lots of compliments. In fact, we had waffles for breakfast this morning. Very easy!!

Pretty good!

I loved these, but my mom felt they were too soft: she prefers crispier waffles. Also, when I make them again, I'm going to cut down on the oil: a half-cup is a lot.

Very simple recipe

This recipe is so simple to whip up. It's actually just like making a pancake batter. If you like soft waffles, you'll love these!
