Homemade Waffle Recipe

Here is a homemade waffle recipe that is super easy to make, and needless to say much healthier than ready-made bought ones.

If you have the time, make a large batch and freeze the waffles for more stressful days. You can actually reheat them directly from the freezer in the toaster!

Homemade waffle recipe

In Sweden (where I come from) waffles are so popular that there is a special day dedicated to waffles, March 25th (Vaffeldagen).

These waffles are served overindulgent, crispy fresh, made with real butter and served with real whipped cream and strawberry compote...

But for slightly healthier breakfast serving suggestions, see below!

Old Fashioned Homemade Waffle Recipe

Here’s what you need

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups soy milk (or regular milk)
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 2 tbs. safflower oil

Here’s what you do

  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the eggs until light yellow, and then add the milk.
  4. Continue beating while adding the flour mix a little at a time. It is easiest with an electric mixer, but by hand works well too.
  5. Mix the batter until blended and smooth, you don't want any lumps. 
  6. Blend in the oil.
  7. Pour a small amount of batter (because of the baking powder it will rise quite a lot) in the center of the waffle iron, bake until done.

Serve with

  • Sliced bananas and a drizzle of honey.
  • Sliced strawberries and a sprinkle of sugar.
  • A dollop of apple sauce and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
  • Spread the waffle with peanut butter, and top with sliced bananas.
  • A spoon of vanilla yogurt and some fresh berries.

When serving waffles to kids, it is a great idea to have a selection of sliced fruit, berries, yogurt, syrup, honey or whatever you like best on the table, and let everyone “create” their own waffle topping. This is a lot of fun and makes it easier for you to serve as well! :)
