I haven’t made a lot of waffles in my days – I’d much prefer an egg. But this recipe, might just convince me otherwise. I was looking for a basic make-at-home waffle mix, because my kids and my husband love waffles. I didn’t want anything fancy, just something that was good, easy, wholesome and not Bisquick or Eggos. This would be it. I also appreciate that it’s made with real butter and not vegetable oil – I think it makes a huge difference in taste. And when I say it’s made with butter – it’s MADE with butter. In fact there is so much butter, I think they’d be more aptly named buffles. . .and good buffles they are!

1 3/4 cup flour, all-purpose
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cups to 1 cup (1/2 to 2 sticks) butter, melted
Use only 1/4 cup if you’re looking for a “reduced-fat” version – and if you’re looking for a crunchier, more flavor-filled waffle go for the gusto with 1 cup. I compromised and used 1/2 cup (1 stick). Basically – the more butter, the crunchier.
1 1/2 cups milk
1.) Preheat your waffle iron. (Waffle iron deals on Amazon)
2.) In one bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sugar and salt). In another bowl, whisk together eggs, butter and milk.
3.) Make a little well in the dry ingredients. Pour in wet ingredients. Whisk!
4.) Don’t whisk too much. Just enough to combine ingredients. It might look a little lumpy, that’s okay.
5.) Follow the instructions for your waffle iron. I use a measuring cup to scoop batter onto waffle maker. Then it beeps when it’s cooked. It’s pretty easy.
6.) Top with any number of things – more butter, syrup, strawberries, whip cream, blueberries. . .
