Your mornings just got a whole lot easier. This homemade waffle mix takes only 5 minutes and you have delicious waffles at your fingertips any time you want.
Do you also love making waffles on the weekends? I wasn’t happy with the added ingredients in the commonly-available pancake and waffle mixes, but making them from scratch every time is out of the question. I would rather be curled up on the couch with my puppies and a book than standing in the kitchen measuring flour on a Sunday morning.
We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. It doesn’t matter, but work is third.Leslie Knope: Parks and Recreation
This bulk recipe is also great if you’re making waffles for a large crowd because it’s easy to scale as needed. Using 1 1/4 cup of the mix will make about 4 standard-sized waffles and, if you’re feeling ambitious, the entire mix will make about 32 waffles.
Storing Waffle Mix
This mix will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 months. But I have a feeling you’ll use it all way before then.
I added a label to my glass jar that reads: “1 egg, 1 1/4 cup milk, 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 1/4 cup mix” so I don’t have to look up the instructions each time.
Customizing Your Waffles
This mix is a great base for fun customized waffle varieties. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Cheddar and scallion
- Chocolate chip
- Nutella and banana
