Best Waffle Recipe Ever

Looking for a recipe for waffles that are soft, buttery, yet slightly crispy? Here is the best waffle recipe EVER.

Yes, ever! My husband, Doug, is a breakfast champ. He tweaked his recipe for pancakes adding a little bit more butter and this was the result. We’ve tried other recipes in the past, and even some mixes, but nothing compares to the texture of these waffles.

You’ll need eight simple ingredients that you likely have on hand, 15 minutes or so, and a waffle iron. I have seen these pretty often at thrift stores or garage sales, so keep your eye out. You’ll be making a wise investment – frozen waffles can’t compare to the awesomeness of these yummy waffles.

This Tuesday, March 25th is International Waffle Day and would be a perfect time to try these out.

We like serving our waffles with combos of the following: butter, maple syrup, peanut butter, powdered sugar, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, applesauce, or even ice cream!

Sometimes if I have fruit that needs to be used, I’ll just chop it up, add it to a saucepan with little bit of water and make our own fruit syrup.

    We always had homemade vanilla pudding and frozen peaches (thawed) or maple syrup. I thought that’s how everyone ate them till I grew up and ate waffles at a friend’s house, and she had never heard of it. It’s still my favorite way to eat waffles!

    We made these yesterday! I showed the recipe to my husband, and he agreed that it had been too long since we used our waffle iron. :)

    We made a double batch and froze the extras. Now we can pull out a frozen waffle and pop it into the toaster any time!

    This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for posting it!

    These really are the best waffles! I’ve made them a few times and they always turn out crispy and buttery. I had a friend in college whose family always ate waffles with peanut butter and syrup. It’s super good! Thanks for sharing!

    Please tell me what you mean by a stick of butter.

    I am in Australia so need the amount of butter by weight.
    Thank you in anticipation of your reply.
