Appliance Cooking = Waffles

So, what do you do when your stove and oven are out? You make waffles, of course! With pancakes on Tuesday and waffles today, I guess it's a bit of a breakfast theme this week. We all thoroughly enjoyed these waffles. I'm including a few ideas for customizing this recipe!

Let me also say, I'm a huge fan of breakfast for lunch or dinner. Perhaps, if I'm being completely honest, I should just say that I'm a fan of breakfast food in general! 

Print This Recipe

2 c. flour (I used part whole wheat)
4 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tb. sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 Tb. oil

Combine dry ingredients. Beat together eggs, milk, vanilla, and oil. Mix wet ingredients into dry stirring just until combined. Batter will be lumpy. Cook as directed on your waffle maker.

-  Sweeter: Increase sugar to  3 Tb. or you could substitute honey.
- Fruit: Add 1/2 c. fresh or frozen fruit (blueberries, peaches, or raspberries would be especially good!)
- Spice: Add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/8 tsp. ginger, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg.
- Buttery: Substitute melted butter for all or part of the oil. 

- Top with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar
- Drizzle with maple syrup.
- Serve with a fruit syrup or fresh fruit.
- Top with yogurt or whipped cream.

You can freeze leftover waffles and re-heat them in your toaster for a quick breakfast or lunch or dinner. :) Enjoy!


  1. How many waffles does this recipe make? Do you think it would work if I used whole wheat flour for the whole 2 cups?

  2. My waffle maker isn't very big. It made 6-7 of the waffles. I think you could use all whole wheat - it will have a nuttier, grainier flavor as things generally do using all whole wheat!
