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!

    Hi, I made this waffle recipe. It was so yummy that I made double recipe. My family enjoyed it for breakfast. Most easiest recipe. Thank you, Jane from Fremont CA.

  2. Erin

    This recipe is great. It’s my go-to recipe to use when I make waffles for my family (sometimes as often as every weekend). They’re a hit every time.

    This recipe is good, but honestly I felt like the 4 tsp of baking powder was overkill for leavening. I went against my better judgement and put the 4 tsp in and the waffles blew up so much that the waffle iron could hardly shut. Also, the sodium content with 4 tsp of baking powder plus the teaspoon of salt is kind of high. If I made it again I’d only use maybe 1-2 tsp of baking powder and maybe a 1/4 tsp of salt. Otherwise a good solid waffle recipe. Thanks!

    1. Sorry you struggled with them rising too much. I’ve never had an issue with them overflowing. I would use less batter on your waffle iron if that’s happening.

  4. Janet Miller

    This was easy, all basic ingredients on hand and made tasty waffles. I did reduce butter just a little and used whole milk. Freezing the extras and I may mix up dry ingredients to make with grandkids with less fuss.

  5. Laraine

    They were cooked on the outside but doughy and uncooked inside. They were cooking for 8 minutes. Our waffle maker has no heat setting control. Also they tasted salty. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Sounds like a waffle maker malfunction? My waffles only take about 2 1/2 minutes to cook all the way through. I would look into seeing if you can increase the heat or possibly find a new waffle maker.

    Hey,
    Loved the recipe,especially heating the milk,great tip.
    If I may suggest,use buttermilk instead of milk. Just finished eating my waffles, thanks again.
    PS. Good luck with,’5’ kids !!
