This Easy Homemade Waffles Recipe is light and crispy on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside – they’re perfect every time!
One of our favorite meals to make on the weekend together as a family is Easy Homemade Waffles!
Each Sunday we love pulling out the waffle iron – the same one we received as a wedding gift years ago – and making these waffles fresh, covered in butter and real maple syrup, while a pan of bacon is sizzling on the stove in a skillet. They’re so good!
Easy Homemade Waffles Recipe
I grew up with my mom and dad using Bisquick to make homemade waffles. Bisquick has a wonderful flavor and always turns out amazing. But, recently I’ve been trying to steer away from processed foods for my family and have been making more convenient foods by scratch.
There are a lot of waffle recipes on the internet and in cookbooks that are easy to make, and use everyday ingredients you most likely already have on hand in your pantry- flour, butter, baking powder, eggs, sugar and vanilla – but, I’ve been experimenting and trying to come up with the perfect waffles recipe from scratch and I believe I’ve found it!
How To Make Homemade Waffles From Scratch
Either one you use, they’re going to turn out great! AND you’ve left out all the preservatives and unnecessary ingredients and that is a great thing!
If you have leftover waffles, they’re perfect warmed up later in the week! You can freeze them in ziplock freezer bags and pull them out as needed throughout the week. You can warm them in the oven, microwave or even the toaster! It’s the perfect make-ahead waffle recipe!

- 1¾ cups milk
