Classic Waffles

There is really only one thing we ever make at home for breakfast (no, not cereal, give me a tiny bit more credit, LOL) – waffles.  My husband has this weird fascination with the waffle iron… which is fine because that means that every so often, I get breakfast served to me. ;)

I mix up the batter, and he bakes them.

Total time:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 Tbsp. softened butter
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  1. Preheat your waffle iron and spray with nonstick spray. Blend together your eggs, milk, butter, sugar, and vanilla.
  2. Sift together the flour and baking powder, then stir into your other mixture.
  3. Pour onto the iron and bake until done - this will vary depending on your iron. In our house, one waffle takes about 4 minutes. When it easily lifts off the iron with a fork, it's ready.

Happy breakfast!

    Okay, I don’t think I’ll be able to make it over for breakfast this week….perhaps next week! ;)

    I love love love Waffles but what I like even better is breakfast crepes…the thinner, the better. My mama is the only one that has even made crepes that I would have to say I would die for :-)

    Great recipe! I love making waffles with my family too! I’m always trying new recipes and this is the easiest one that everyone loved! Thank you! I followed your directions for the first batch, then for the second experimented by adding in chopped apple and some apple pie spice and subbing some whole wheat flour for the white flour. It was great! Hope you don’t mind if I share this recipe on my Tasty Tuesday blog soon.

    I literally forgot to add the eggs. They still came out perfect and delicious. Next time I’ll experiment with adding fruit. This is my new fav recipe!
