Farmhouse Fluffy Waffles
A hot breakfast is something I always desire when I wake up on a cool day in Ohio. Living in our old farmhouse, the wood floors can be chilly, and the air has a draft. It’s some of the charms of its history, but it can be a bit hard to leave the comfort of our warm bed. So, a warm breakfast like pancakes, biscuits, or these homemade waffles is just the thing I want to make for my boys each morning and enjoy myself.
But who has time for a big farmhouse waffle breakfast when the bus is coming in 20 minutes and the kids are still in their warm footie pajamas? I found a great solution to our hot breakfast in the cold winter mornings.
- Prep for a busy weekday morning: On Saturday or Sunday morning we usually make a big waffle breakfast and take the leftovers and put them in the refrigerator to enjoy all week long – hot breakfast! We make a double batch of the recipe you’ll find below. Just pop the waffles in the toaster on the busy weekday mornings and you’re done.
- Waffle Maker: If you want to make the waffles last through the week you’ll need a waffle maker that divides the waffle into smaller parts that will fit into a toaster like this one.

This hot breakfast is fun way for us to gather before a busy Saturday or before church on Sundays. And the fact that it preps us for the week ahead – its just so clever. And if you like this recipe, try strawberry waffles with the addition of strawberries. But like every good breakfast, the less dishes and the more prep – the better. I hope you enjoy this homemade waffle recipe as much as my family has!

Waffle Recipe: FAQs
After making the waffles let them completely cool. Tear your waffles into triangles if your waffle iron creates a natural division. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer. Pop into the toaster when ready to reheat. Enjoy with butter and syrup.
Once cool, store leftover waffles in a airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. When ready to enjoy, pop into the toaster to crisp up. You can also freeze the leftover waffles and toast from freezer when ready to eat!
Waffle recipes tend to have more fat (hence the butter) than pancake recipes do. Try this recipe if you’re in the mood for pancakes.
Belgian waffles tend to be thicker. You use a unique waffle maker to create them. The recipe also calls for a leavening agent (the baking powder in this recipe) which allows them to be nice and fluffy.
