My Favorite Waffles

Make these waffles in any type of waffle maker. 
Thick Belgian-style or thinner shaped waffles, like
my heart shaped waffle maker...they are all good. 
Serve with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar
 or warmed maple syrup....or both.
 Mix up the batter and let rest.
(Warm the milk in the microwave for 1 min.
It helps to keep the  butter from congealing.? 
 Spray and preheat a waffle iron.
Pour 1/3 C batter into the center. 
(or use the amount recommended by your iron)
Close and bake until golden.
Keep waffles warm in the oven, along with your 
plates while you bake the rest.
One of the things I love about waffles is that 
unlike pancakes they freeze beautifully.
I always make the full recipe.
Then I can just pop them from the freezer
right into the toaster oven to reheat.  

My Favorite Waffles
2 C flour
2 T sugar
1 T baking powder
1/4 t salt
Whisk together in a large bowl. 
2 egg yolks
1-3/4 C milk, warmed
6 T butter, melted
Whisk together in another bowl, 
then combine with the flour mixture.
2 beaten egg whites
Fold into the combined batter. 
Let stand up to 30 minutes.

Pour 1/3 C batter in the center of sprayed and 
preheated waffle iron. Close lid and bake until
 golden, about 2-3 minutes.
Remove and keep warm on a plate in the oven, 
along with your plates while you make the
 rest. Freeze any leftover waffles and use 
a toaster oven to reheat again.
(tip: If you are in a hurry and do not want
to separate the eggs, you can just beat 
the whole eggs until frothy and proceed) 
Makes 10 waffles.
 1. Use warmed milk to keep the butter 
    emulsified in the batter.
2. Never stack the waffles. 
    The steam will make hem soggy.
3. Freeze in a single layer until solid, 
     then stack in a reused bread bag. 
4. Pop in the toaster straight from the
    freezer to reheat. 

My other waffle recipes:


  1. Can life get more perfect than a heart waffle with strawberries on Valentine's Day? Thank you for the recipe. I am definitely going to bookmark this one. Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. I have a heart-shaped waffle maker, too!! Your recipe sounds perfect & I like that you can choose to not whip the egg yolks & whites separately.

  3. I have the same waffle maker - the kids just love to cut them into heart shapes. I haven't made waffles is such a long time.... I'll have to do something about that soon. Have a great weekend.

  4. Rita, these really look delicious. I am new to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I'm so glad I did that. I really like the food and recipes you share with your readers and I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  5. What I really like about those waffles is that you don’t have to exert too much effort to make them look presentable. Their shape and texture already did it for you! Anyway, thanks for sharing your recipe. It seems very easy to follow and foolproof. All the best!

  6. When we go through the commercial waffler, it is completely amicable in providing the state-of-the art- services within the food industry. This incorporates all the basic elements of the ordinary maker along with the aspects of the modern technological one. Find more at this website.
