Let's Make Waffles

One of my new favorite breakfast items is waffles and I'm sharing the best recipe with you today!  This comes straight from the kitchen of my friend Linda's mom.  The truth is I've asked Linda for the recipe a million times and she's always gracious enough to stop what she's doing and send it to me.  So I thought it was about time I blog about it so I'll know where to find it the next time we are making waffles!  

Here's What You Need
2-1/2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking power
3/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 tablespoon sugar
2 eggs
2-1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup oil

Here's What You Do
Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another.  Then combine the two together and whisk.

Pour the batter into a heated waffle iron that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  For my iron, it takes about 3/4 cup of batter.  

My waffle iron in relatively new.  Eric got it for me for Valentine's Day and it's perfect!  I love the light on the top that indicates when it's ready for the batter.  When you pour the batter in, you flip it over until the ready light on that side lights up.  Flip it back and you have a perfectly cooked waffle waiting for you inside.  

As you can see from the picture, we like to dress our waffle up with fresh strawberries, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles and top it all off with a cherry.  Dessert anyone?

When we start entertaining house guests again, you better believe these waffles will be on the menu.  I can't wait to set up a waffle bar with all our favorite toppings!  Rather you fix these for a fancy breakfast for many or just a casual weekend breakfast for two, you are going to love these waffles!  Enjoy!


  1. Coincidentally, my daughter just sent me a Weight Watchers recipe for waffles a few minutes ago. And I was just over at Amazon shopping for a little waffle iron. So glad to find your post with this recipe and recommendation of a little waffle iron. Love the idea of putting chocolate, strawberries, whipped cream and sprinkles on top!!

  2. We just had waffles this past week and they were so good!

  3. These look amazing!! I've always wanted to make waffles at home, but I don't have a waffle maker! Thanks for sharing these at the #HomeMattersParty :)

  4. They do look delicious! This reminds and inspires me to buy a new waffle maker. Thanks so much for visiting with us this week and sharing the recipe. Now we all know where to find it. #HomeMattersParty
