Homemade waffle batter that is perfect for any weekend or weekday breakfast. This will become your new favorite waffle recipe.

Over the past few years, this recipe has become a fan favorite for my readers. It also happens to be the #1 recipe for Homemade Waffle Batter on Pinterest. Yes, you can use a mix for pancakes or waffles but it is so much better when you can make it from scratch. I mean I would be impressed if someone made me homemade anything and it didn’t come from a box.

We are huge fans of pancakes/waffles, bacon and eggs for weekend morning meals. The kids like to get involved in the kitchen. Now if I could just get them to make coffee or bring me breakfast in bed on one of those cute looking trays that we don’t even own.
One day..soon I hope.

  1. I love homemade waffles! This looks like a simple, but perfect batter!

  2. I still don’t have a waffle maker, but would love one. I could go either way on the syrup, most of the time I use it. But when I am out I am happy to eat them with just butter.

  3. No syrup! Don’t know about that. We had a craving one night for chicken and waffles (no waffle maker) so Lucas went to the store and bought us one :): Guess we’re impulse buyers LOL

  4. I was lucky enough to win a gorgeous Calphalon waffle maker at a blogging conference back in May, and I’ve been experimenting with it ever since (sometimes with less-than-perfect results, unfortunately).
    This looks like a great basic batter recipe… I bet it lends itself well to additions/substitutions.

  5. I’m the same way! I never eat syrup on my waffles or pancakes just plain butter for me. My husband thinks I’m crazy and proceeds to cover his

  6. I love this! Gives me an excuse to break out the waffle maker that we got as a wedding gift. Thanks!

  7. It’s beautiful. I bought my own waffle maker after we stayed with friends and she made some for our breakfast. So, this recipe will go on the list of ones to try. Many thanks for sharing it. (Hubby likes his waffles with just butter as well…me, I like the syrup.)

  8. I soooo love waffles; even more than pancakes. There is just something so yum about them. Thanks for posting this Meagan!

  12. I love waffels. I also bought waffels maker but I’ve never used it.
    But now that I’ve saved your recipe I will try it. Thanks!

  13. Good timing, we just bought a waffle iron two weeks ago and have not tried it out yet, now I have no excuse! BTW, the only syrup I will use is homemade maple, there is nothing like it!

  14. Melted butter pooling in those waffle grooves is a good reason not to use syrup. 🙂

  15. A few years ago, my husband bought a waffle maker for fun and the family has been very happy ever since. These look grand I would take mine plain – with maybe some fruit.

  16. Meagan, your waffles look beautiful and I’m sure they are delicious. This is my first visit to your blog, so I took some time to browse through your earlier posts. I’m so glad I did that. You have created a lovely spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoyed the time I spent here. I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  22. How many would this make???

  23. These are amazing! We are having bkfst for dinner tonight and decided on waffles. I snuck one as I was making them and they are so good…no syrup needed thanks will be adding this recipe to my box!

  24. About how many waffles does this make?

  25. Made these Sunday morning and are the best waffles I have ever had….only thing, recipe makes way to much for just myself and husband (got 6 waffles). Can the batter be stored in fridge for later use?

    • You may have to whisk it since it will thicken up quite a bit in the refrigerator. You can also prepare the waffles and store them in the refrigerator or freezer.

  26. I would like the recipe for homemade waffle batter
