Quick and Easy Homemade Belgian Waffles

This recipe makes enough for about four people. It can easily be doubled if you are serving breakfast for a larger group. You can also make a larger batch and then freeze the leftovers after they have cooled. Easily reheat them by popping them in the toaster for a few minutes. They’re way better than Eggos and are just as easy to reheat on a busy weekday morning. Why are the things our moms wouldn’t let us eat, so delicious?

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil, or melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, optional

Methods

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  3. Stir together the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  4. Whip together the milk, eggs, and oil in a liquid measuring cup or a separate bowl.

  5. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until combined. The batter may be a bit lumpy, but that is OK.

  7. Top with butter and warm maple syrup.
