Quick and Easy Waffles Recipe

It’s funny to call these waffles Quick and Easy because in comparison to my weekday breakfast, they are quite a bit of work. But in reality, when it’s the weekend and time to make waffles, shouldn’t you really do it right?

These waffles take nothing more than a bowl, a few ingredients that you probably have on hand… and oh yeah, a waffle iron. For added instruction and entertainment, watch the How to Make Quick and Easy Waffles Video.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder

2 beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups milk (or combination milk, buttermilk)
1/4 cup cooking oil (canola, safflower, vegetable)

    Your ingredients were the best! I never knew it could be so easy! Along time ago someone told me the key to cooking is love. Well it took me 20 years to figure that out. I looked and looked and looked not one recipe explained what love was. Then one week everything I made tasted like my mother-in-law made it! I finally had it! The main ingredient “LOVE”! My family is thankful my fiends are thankful but most of all I am thankful! Being today is thanksgiving I found it perfect with your recipe to pass on my knowledge! Sincerely, (found the love) Amy

    Hi Katina, Happy to hear it – thanks! Sure, experiment with different types of flour. A combination of whole wheat and white — or throw in some wheat germ to health things up. Have fun!
