Classic Waffles

These waffles are delicious topped with maple syrup and berries, but could also be made savoury—try adding a handful of grated cheese to the batter, and topping them with chili or pulled pork, or use them to make sloppy joes.

Classic Waffles

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs 
  • 2 cups milk, cream, or thinned yogurt or sour cream
  • 1/4 cup canola oil 

How to Make It


In large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.


In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and oil; pour over the dry ingredients and whisk just until blended. (If it seems thick, let it sit for about 20 minutes to allow the flour to absorb some of the liquid.)


Preheat your waffle iron and brush it with some oil or spray it with nonstick spray.


Pour in about 3/4 cup batter and cook according to the manufacturer's directions, or until the waffle is golden and crisp.


Makes about 4-6 large waffles.

Waffles are a great way to use up dairy products that are nearing their expiry date - though most call for milk, you could also use buttermilk (add about 1/2 tsp baking soda to the dry ingredients), or plain yogurt or sour cream, thinned with a bit of water to the consistency of cream. If you have dairy products left that are going to expire before your have time to use them, toss the containers into the freezer until you’re ready—it may separate as it thaws, but is still just fine to use in baked goods.
