Homemade Waffles

Warning you will NEVER eat store bought waffle mixes after you try these super easy Homemade Waffles. I grew up having these waffles every Saturday morning. This homemade waffle recipe is simple to make and even better to eat. They are light and fluffy, and melt in your mouth good.

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • cups milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder


  • Separate the egg yolk and the egg white and put into 2 separate bowls. Beat egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff & set aside.
  • Combine egg yolks with the milk and oil, and set aside.
  • Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Mix together dry and wet ingredients (except egg whites). Carefully fold egg whites into your batter mixture leaving puffs of egg whites. ***Do Not Over Mix****
  • You can us any waffle Iron to make these, however I prefer Belgian waffle makers because these waffles are super light and fluffy so a thicker waffle is better for this recipe.


*This waffle recipe is great to make ahead and freeze for later. My kids love to have these homemade waffles before school in the morning. The best way to freeze them is to make sure they are completely cool before freezing. Put them in a freezer zip lock bag, and freeze. We cook them using the toaster, and the waffle setting.
**Some of our favorite toppings include, homemade Texas Road House butter, and homemade strawberry freezer jam.
