Foolproof Homemade Waffles

    1 hour 15 minutes

    Get that waffle iron to work with this easy waffle batter recipe; the hardest bit is working out what to put on top of it when cooked, I personnaly like maple syrup, strawberries and cream.

    This is the most un-foolproof waffle recipe EVER!! Terrible! Delicious yes - but limp, soft, soggy, flaccid waffles... Yes I made it according to the recipe & cooked them as long as possible before burnt to try & crisp them up - all to no avail  -  13 Feb 2017


    I tried this as a quicker recipe than my usual waffle recipe which involves beating egg whites separately and then folding into the batter. Although the waffles in this recipe aren't as thick, they do seem to stay crispier for longer. Husband thought it was a better recipe. Only change I would make would be to mix the eggs with the milk and cooled melted butter and then to add to the dry ingredients. Overall a good basic recipe.  -  06 Apr 2014
