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.
How to Make Homemade Waffles
- Dry Ingredients: Stir together the dry ingredients and set them aside.
- Wet Ingredients: Beat eggs in a large bowl. Add milk, butter, and vanilla. Mix well.
- Combine: Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
- Pour: Add waffle batter to greased waffle iron and bake by waffle maker instructions.
Waffle Topping Ideas
I prefer butter and syrup. However, this homemade raspberry sauce would be amazing . You can also top with whipped cream and fresh fruit. My kids prefer peanut butter with syrup.
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.

Hello! Do you think it would be alright if I made the batter a night before? And added the baking the morning of making them? So excited to try these!!
You can make the batter the night before but leave out the baking powder. The baking powder will break down. I would add the baking powder before making the waffles in the morning.
Hi, can u use in a waffle mould for the oven. Brought them to see if any good.
I don’t see why not. I would follow the directions on the mold and see what happens. 🙂
This is a good recipe. Looks like the batter should have sat for 10 minutes before using. The last waffle was the right consistency. Of course! LOL!!
Glad you enjoyed it!
I made this with coconut flour. It did NOT turn out! Just use regular flour!
Good to know! Thanks!
That’s because you’d need a combo of both coconut and almond bc coconut flour absorbs too much moisture so it would be to dry to substitute 2cups for 2 cups. I’d do one 1 3/4 of a cup of almond flour and 1/4 cup of coconut and see if that works you can even do almost all almond flour and bd only about 2-3 tbsp of coconut flour. I hope this helps!
what a tb?
tb stands for Tablespoon.
The best waffle recipe I have found!!!
yay! I’m so glad you found them. We love them too!

Delicious & so easy. I bake them & freeze them. They warm in the toaster oven perfectly. A great quick snack for my grandkids.
Awesome! We enjoy them from the toaster as well!
I made this recipe twice, the first time the waffles came out suuuper bitter, the second time I reduced the baking soda to a fourth of what the recipe calls for (1tsp instead of 4 tsp) and they came out perfect
Hi. Your video says baking soda but the recipe says baking powder. Could u clarify please. Just bought a waffle maker. Can’t wait to.get waffling! Gayatri
Hi! Thanks so much for letting me know! You use baking powder as the recipe card states. I need to update the video! Whoops!
I actually did this🤦🏻♀️ I put the baking soda instead of baking powder, next time I’ll do it correctly 😅
You’re not the first one! Glad you figured it out. 🙂
