After last week’s Instant Pot fiasco I needed a win and a few weeks ago I made an impulse purchase. You see, I’m a huge fan of breakfast foods and I especially love waffles. A while ago my parents sent me the coolest little waffle maker that made them in the shape of Texas. I loved it. I’ve used it a lot and it has never failed me. One day while casually browsing Amazon I found a reasonably priced double-sided waffle iron. It cooks two waffles at once! I was sold and had to give it a shot!DSC_1189

My love of breakfast runs deep but I don’t tend to eat it as much as I should. After last week’s struggle with the Instant Pot, I decided to go back to the basics. I did some research and decided this morning I would treat myself and try out my new toy! For the first time that I can remember, I made Homemade Waffles. Normally, I am a fan of the pre-made mixes. I prefer the ones that require egg, milk, and oil. Somehow they seem more real to me. The mixes that require just adding water can be delicious but a gal likes what she likes! What was great about this recipe is that I had all of the ingredients in my cabinet already. No need for any boxed mixes today! It was awesome knowing I could make my very own waffles without going to the store first.

Overall, the recipe was simple and adapting to my new dual iron was easier than I expected. In hindsight, this recipe only made enough to make 3 full waffles with my new waffle iron. Next time doubling for more waffles is a must, especially if I’m making brunch for more than one. These waffles were light and fluffy and did not disappoint. It may have been simple but I needed this waffle win in the kitchen!

  • Whisk the flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
  • In another bowl or large measuring jug, whisk the milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla together until blended.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and whisk until just mixed.
  • Set batter aside for 10 to 15 minutes so the baking powder has time to activate.

  • Serve and enjoy!
