What’s a better way to begin a sunny spring morning then to whip up a batch of homemade waffles? Below is my basic, go-to waffle recipe. I usually make a batch of plain waffle batter and then get creative with it by adding all kinds of different ingredients: fresh berries, lemon zest with poppy seeds, apples and cinnamon, mini-chocolate chips, grated cheese and chives, and even, on occasion, rainbow sprinkles. I also sometimes swap the milk and 2 tbsp of butter for buttermilk.
This recipe makes 6 waffles.
- 4 Eggs (separated into two different bowls)
- 4 tbsp (1/2 Stick or a 1/4 cup) melted Butter
- 1 1/2 cups Milk
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- Non-stick Spray or melted Butter for the waffle iron
- Preheat the waffle iron.
- Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, and set them aside for later.
- Beat the egg yokes until frothy.
- Add the milk, butter, honey, and vanilla into the egg yokes and continue to beat.
- Sift in the flour, baking powder, and salt.
- Combine the ingredients uniformly, but try to not over beat them.
- Gently fold in the egg whites.
- Cook the batter in the waffle iron.
