Waffles | Classic Waffles Recipe

Waffles are one of our favorite weekend breakfast to eat and the boys get too excited when I make it from scratch. Making waffles from scratch is not too hard but yet I am guilty of making it from the store bought mix. Weekday mornings are rushed and the store bought mix is just easy to whip up to make the Waffles.

When using the store bought mix, I do not use eggs or oil. I just mix up the waffles mix with water and make them. The flavor of making the Classic Waffles from scratch is unbeatable and the texture cannot be even compared. The Waffles come out with a beautiful golden color which is crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Top them off with some berries and drizzle the warm maple syrup and it just is the most irresistible breakfast ever.


The recipe I adapted has a bit of corn starch mixed with the All Purpose flour. I have made it earlier with just all purpose flour, but this Waffles recipe gives the crispy outside yet keeping the center soft. Mix up the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients separately and then combine them together. Pour the Waffles batter in the hot waffle iron and the Classic Waffles are ready.

The Waffle maker that I am using is almost 15 years old and works just great. We recently bought a waffle iron that makes one large waffle, but I still have not even opened it. The 2 small squares seems to work well for the boys as they are small to eat. I was searching to find my new one to make the waffles for this post, but could not locate where we have stored it.

If you are not going to serve the waffles right away, then make sure that you do not stack them one on top of another. That will make it become soggy. Another tip that I learned was to keep the waffles on a wore rack inside the 200 F oven to retain the crispness until ready to serve. My older son loves to eat the waffles crispy with some butter and syrup on top. He loves it when the butter hots the warm waffles and starts to melt slowly. The oven works great to keep the waffles crisp and because of this I can make the waffles in one shot and store them well until everyone’s ready for breakfast.

  1. Good one, Sandhya. My little one is a waffle and pancake person. So I always try new combination of flours and fruits for her. She loves all variations and I am sure she will love the berries topped ones off the screen as well 🙂

  2. I know even though most of these classic recipes are not hard to make from scratch, I end getting the store bought mix and I can relate to your guilty feeling. But but but we have to let go of something. Love these yummy waffles from scratch.

  3. One should never feel guilty while using these store bought mixes , they are actually very handy in rush hours and it is perfectly ok to go ahead with them. I am loving these waffles, they look nice and crisp..just like you said. The toppings are classic and you have beautiful clicks.

  4. Buying a waffle maker is in my list for long. Making it from scratch sounds pretty easy and serving it with maple syrup and fruits makes an amazing breakfast. The platter looks so good and nice tips on keeping waffles fresh until serving time.

  5. My kids LOVE waffles too. They would devour these in no time. I freeze the leftovers and they are great as quick breakfast on a busy morning.

  6. My waffle maker has been used just once and that too for a fusion recipe! I really need to try your recipe. The waffles look so good Sandhya.And I feel once in a while we can use store bought mixes to safe us some time.
