This Classic Waffle Recipe makes perfectly crisp on the outside, fluffy on the inside waffles that are to die for!
We have been making these delicious classic waffles non stop at our house. I’m not joking when I say that my kids request them every weekend.
I figured I better share this awesome recipe with you all, just in case you’re looking for THE BEST waffles out there!
Classic Waffle Recipe:
- What I really love about these waffles is that they are super easy to make.
- The outsides of the waffles are crisp, while the insides stay nice and fluffy, and they also freeze really well!
I actually found this recipe on AllRecipes and fell in love with it the first time I tried it.
The Best Waffles Recipe:
- Start with your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet ingredients in the other.
- What makes this one so unique is that the milk is warmed up.
Why is that such a big deal? Well, the melted butter would be more likely to harden and not get evenly dispersed if the milk was cold.
This way, that buttery goodness is woven throughout each waffle. SO GOOD!
Tips for Keeping Waffles Warm:
- If you’re not going to enjoy your waffle straight out of the griddle, is to place them on a cooling rack in an even layer.
- Turn your oven to the “warm” setting or about 220 degrees F. and place the fresh waffles in an even layer in the oven until ready to enjoy.
Unlike pancakes, where you can toss them all on top of each other to keep them warm, waffles have a crispy outer coating that is highly desirable. If you stack them while they’re hot, they are going to create steam and quickly loose that crispiness.
Can You Freeze Waffles?
- YES! These waffles are great for storing in the freezer and popping straight into the toaster oven.
- Place the cooled waffles in a zip close bag and store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
I make a triple batch of these and my kids can enjoy them throughout the week. We love them with fresh berries, whipped cream and of course a little syrup never hurts!
We also just recently upgraded our waffle iron to a double waffle baker and it’s life changing.
I would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a new waffle maker!
I hope you enjoy these waffles as much as we do!Print
