Waffles are one of the most popular breakfast foods, and they’re easy to make as well. However, if you don’t know how to make waffles from scratch, it could seem a little challenging at first since waffles usually require several ingredients. Luckily, there are some easy recipes that you can follow to make flavorful waffles. Below, find four mouth-watering waffle recipes.
1. Classic waffles
When you’re in the mood for some traditional waffles, you can make them with this tasty waffle recipe. In a large bowl, mix two cups of flour and a dash each of salt, sugar, and baking powder. Preheat your waffle iron to your desired temperature.
In another bowl, beat two eggs and stir in one and a half cups of milk, a third cup of melted butter, and a few drops of vanilla extract. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and beat until blended. Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron, cook the waffles until they’re golden, and enjoy.
2. Pumpkin spice waffles
If you love pumpkin spice, here’s an easy and delicious pumpkin spice waffle recipe. Preheat your waffle iron to medium-high heat. Lightly coat the top and bottom of your waffle iron with nonstick spray or butter. In a large bowl, mix one and two-thirds cups of flour, and a dash each of pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, and salt.
In a large glass measuring cup, whisk together one and one-quarter cup of buttermilk, one cup of pumpkin puree, two large eggs, and a quarter cup of unsalted butter. Stir the two mixtures together with a rubber spatula just until moist but a little lumpy. Pour a half cup of the pumpkin mixture into the waffle iron and close gently. Cook for about five minutes and dig in.
3. Belgian waffles
Some waffle lovers love Belgian waffles because they’re crispy yet soft and taste especially yummy with fruit toppings, so here’s a delightful Belgian waffle recipe. First, oil a waffle iron. Then, sift two cups of flour, four teaspoons of baking powder, a dash of sugar, and a sprinkle of salt into a large bowl.
In another bowl, separate two egg whites from their yolks and beat the whites until stiff peaks form (this is called a meringue). In a third bowl, mix the egg yolks, two cups of milk, a half-cup oil, and a dash of vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients and the egg yolk mixture, then fold in the meringue. Cook the waffle batter in a waffle iron on medium-high heat for around five to 10 minutes and serve.
4. Vegan waffles
This vegan waffle recipe is perfect for vegans who are craving the rare pleasure of dairy-free, egg-free waffles. You can also pair your vegan waffles with fresh almond butter and a banana protein smoothie.
To start, preheat your waffle iron. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix two cups of flour, one and three-quarter cups of vanilla almond milk, a quarter cup of oil, and a dash of each sugar and baking powder until most of the flour lumps are gone.
Pour about half a cup of batter on your waffle iron. Close the cover and cook for approximately five minutes. Bon appétit!
