Learn how to make waffles from scratch with this easy recipe that is bound to make your weekends more delicious. This is a breakfast that comes together in less than 30 minutes, and it is a recipe that relies on pantry staples you probably have at home already.
These waffles are light and fluffy in texture and they can be topped with anything you like! I was indulgent and added whipped cream, raspberries, and a touch of maple syrup. If you want to be healthy, add some peanut butter, jam, or lemon curd.
I love waffles, they remind me of college. That was the time of my life when my waffle consumption reached its peak. I think every college cafeteria has a waffle station. I probably ate waffles on a weekly basis back then. After college waffles became a rare treat due to lack of access of a waffle maker.
As an adult, I always wanted a waffle maker, but at the same time, I didn’t have room for another appliance – especially an appliance that only has one function! Recently I was given a mini waffle maker, and I love it more than I thought I would. It makes waffles that are the same size as an eggo waffle. I have this waffle maker, it’s the perfect size for someone with a small kitchen and it costs less than $15. Plus, smaller waffles cook faster. My waffle maker gets the job done in 2-3 minutes!
If you want to make a grab and go breakfast, you can cook up a batch of these waffles, freeze them, and in reheat them in your toaster before eating. Just like an eggo, but homemade.
I know what you might be thinking. Serving waffles in a giant stack isn’t very practical, and I agree. It does make for some fun photos though. The photos depict a full batch of mini waffles, which yields 5 waffles. It’s perfect for two people. You can easily double or triple the recipe if you need to make more servings.

How to make Waffles:
- 1/2 cup of Flour
- 1 tablespoon Powdered Sugar
- 2 teaspoons Baking Powder
- a pinch of Salt
- 1/3 cup Milk (I use 2%)
- 1 Large Egg
- 2 tablespoons, separated Melted Butter
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, powdered sugar, baking powder, and salt together.
Next whisk in the milk and egg. Once combined add 1 tablespoon melted butter and the vanilla.
Heat up your waffle maker. Once hot, use a brush to lightly grease the waffle maker with butter.
Add a little less than 1/4 cup of batter to the waffle maker and let cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown.
Continue making waffles, greasing the waffle maker with more butter in between each waffle, until you have used all the batter.
Serve with whipped cream, maple syrup, peanut butter, nutella, jam, lemon curd, and/or berries.
