Classic Waffle Recipe: A Breakfast Favorite
Waffles are a popular breakfast staple and for good reason. With their crispy exterior and fluffy interior, waffles are a delicious treat that can be enjoyed on their own or with a variety of toppings. While there are many different waffle recipes out there, the classic waffle recipe remains a favorite for many.
— Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 4 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 6 tbsp butter, melted (see notes if using salted butter)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
— How To Make It :
Preheat waffle iron.
In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and whisk to combine.
Warm the milk up in the microwave for just 1 minute, or heat until slightly warm on the stove top.
In a separate small bowl whisk the eggs and stir in the warm milk, melted butter and vanilla extract.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and whisk until blended.
Scoop the batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp.
Serve immediately or lay on a cooling rack until cool. Store in zip close bags in freezer.
— Tips for Making Perfect Waffles:
- Use room temperature ingredients, as this will help the batter come together more easily and result in lighter, fluffier waffles.
- Don’t overmix the batter, as this can make the waffles tough and chewy. Mix until just combined, leaving some lumps in the batter.
- Preheat your waffle iron thoroughly before cooking the waffles. This will ensure that the waffles cook evenly and have a crispy exterior.
- If you’re making a large batch of waffles, keep them warm in a low oven (around 200°F) until ready to serve. This will help them stay crisp and prevent them from getting soggy.
- Experiment with different toppings to find your favorite combination. Whether you prefer sweet or savory, there’s a waffle topping out there for everyone.
