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!

  1. I would like to thank you for sharing this simple and quick recipe. I have tried it so many times for family and guests and they have really enjoyed it. I am the owner of Harsha Enterprises. We manufacture and supply waffle powder Mix. I tried this recipe with the same premix. If you have a gluten-free recipe, I would love to try it.

    so I have tried a few different Waffle recipes and by far this is the BEST ONE! I just doubled the recipe last weekend for a small Bridal shower brunch I gave and they were a hit as I expected. I always make a few extra to freeze and eat thru out the week!

    This is our all time favorite waffle recipe! My husband will refuse to eat any other waffle recipe. I took about a 6 month break from making waffles and told him I couldn’t find the recipe again and he about lost it lol but after many searches for waffle recipe with light blue logo We found it! Thanks for making a delicious and easy recipe! We live in Colorado so I half the baking powder!

    1. Aww!! That’s so awesome that you guys love this recipe so much. 🙂 Thank you for your comment and I’m so glad you found the recipe again! Hope you printed it this time! 😉

    These have been a family favorite for years, it was seriously love at first bite. I hadn’t even tried another recipe since going vegan and GF. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a suitable replacement. So I decided to attempt to fit this recipe to my needs. Obviously if it was a flop, I wouldn’t post a review as that would be my fault. Anyway, I’m happy to report these turned out just as amazing! I used a gluten free flour (better batter), flax eggs, almond milk, and earth balance butter. The kids are still raving about them.

    I made these this morning came out so good. Kids loved it. I ran out of waffle mix and now I dont need to buy it because this recipe is perfect. I added a tsp of pumpkin pie seasoning because I’m dreaming of fall lol

      You will “lose the crispness”, not “loose”. Social media uses these words wrongly all too often and more learn the wrong way.

    1. Hi Sharon, I’m thinking it might be an issue with your printer or low ink? I’ve tested the print on a few printers and I’m not running into any issues. I’m sorry you’re having issues with it.

    So happy to find a waffle recipe that comes together quick and cooks up well in my 6-inch belgian griddle. (I made about 7 waffles with this recipe.) And they taste great! Thanks. 🙂

    1. Almond milk – yes. If you subbed the self rising flour for all purpose flour, just reduce the amount of baking powder you add to maybe just 2 tsp? I haven’t tried this yet so I’m not sure of the results.

  7. Patty Patzman

    I made these for breakfast today. I was out of milk, but had powdered buttermilk. Added 6 TBS. powder to the dry ingredients and 1 1/2 C. warm water to the wet. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon and finely diced 3/4 of an apple. My husband told me to make them again.

  8. Mom On Middle

    We made these last night for Breakfast for Dinner. Instead of warm milk. I made soured milk. They came out great! Thanks!

  9. Camille

    Loved these waffles! I used gluten free flour and Earth Balance “butter” and they still turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!!

  10. Kemmy

    This is the most amazing waffle I’ve ever had. Everyone loves it and the recipe was so easy to make. Thank you

    1. Becky

      Tried this but they came out of the waffle maker still stodgy on the inside and outside would have burnt if left for longer! Any ideas?

      1. Sounds like you might have the heat of your waffle maker too high if it’s scorching the outside before it cooks the inside all the way? Can you adjust the heat settings?

  11. Jade

    I was looking for a waffle recipe last night for next day breakfast and i found yours.
    It was a great recipe! Cooked perfectly and delicious. Thanks for sharing
