Easy Waffles


Start your day with fluffy and delicious waffles.

  • Prep:
  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, November 2005


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • Maple syrup and butter, as desired, for serving


  1. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; set aside.

  2. In a small bowl, whisk milk and eggs; pour over flour mixture, and whisk gently to combine (don't overmix). Gently whisk in butter.

  3. Following manufacturer's instructions, cook waffles until deep brown and crisp. (For a standard waffle iron, pour a generous 1/2 cup of batter into center, spreading to within 1/2 inch of edges, and close; waffle will cook in 2 to 3 minutes.) Serve warm, with maple syrup and butter, as desired.

    I have tried a lot of your recipes but have never written in. I had to about these waffles. My dad usually does not eat them cause I usually do the aunt jemima box mix. I did this recipe this morning and everyone ate them even my dad. So never again the box mix. They were so fluffy and light and delicious.

    I hate making making waffles: separate eggs, beat whites to soft peaks, fold in, etc. This recipe takes all the pain away and the end product was great, frozen, and toasted. A BIG hit and cheaper than store bought processed product. I did use old baking powder so I used more than required ... got a big rise and very fluffy. Thank you Martha~!

    Dear Martha, I completely understand having a video is sometimes helpful when making a new recipe. I find it absolutely ridiculous that you can't rid of the video when you don't need it. If I pause it, and scroll past it, the video then covers up the ingredients list. If I let the video play, thinking it will go away, it doesn't. It just loops. Stop it already. Have them for guidance but allow people to get rid of them if need be.

    I plan to reduce the sugar to 1TB in the future.

    ?? Making waffles with beaten egg whites you fold in at the end is indeed "better," and stretches the batter to = more waffles but it's way too much effort & dirty bowls to clean up afterward for a quick breakfast, that's why this recipe exists with a label of Easy! Like everyone I worried that the batter looked too runny, but it wasn't, it cooked up perfectly! I recommend making certain you beat the eggs really well & use fresh baking powder, I bet that affected commenters who reported issues.

    Eggy and buttery. Crispy and fluffy. Taste like crêpes. Wonderful with strawberries and cream. Thanks for another great meal.
