The Story Behind The BEST Homemade Waffles

I am a pancake girl through and through. Seriously, if you offer me pancakes it will be terribly hard for me to turn it down. Especially if they are unique in flavor like these Blueberry Danish Pancakes.

My husband and kids on the other hand, are huge fans of waffles. In fact, one of my kids eat a waffle with Nutella on it every morning. For years I have tried to love them, but I just don’t. Instead, I always leave my empty plate regretting my breakfast choice.

For some reason, I knew there had to be a waffle recipe out that I could learn to love. For the past year, I have searched high and low for the perfect waffle recipe, but never found it. They were either too sweet, too chewy, or too tough.

However, I found a great base recipe over at Preppy Kitchen. It had rave reviews, but it just wasn’t the perfect recipe for me. I found it was too runny and need quite a bit more flour. With a few changes, I present you the BEST waffle recipe. Seriously, though, it’s really the best and will become a new favorite at your house.

Not only do these make your house smell amazing, but the taste so incredible. In fact, one of my children threw a fit one Saturday morning that I was making these and insisted I made my Light and Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes instead. After one bite, however, he was sold and wound up eating two entire waffles. They are huge!

    this ruined my morning i followed everything exactly and 1/2 cup of butter is way to much it was ruined and then i didn’t have enough stuff to try and fix it 1/5 stars do not make this

    1. I’m sorry this didn’t turn out for you because this is one of our all-time favorite breakfasts, and we make it all the time with great success. Maybe the butter was measured wrong? Hopefully you’ll give it another try sometime.

    Made these today for the family and they turned out amazing! The recipe was easy to follow and easy to make.
    Thank you!

  • Excellent! 😃 Best waffles ever.
    The only thing I did different was to beat the eggs in that all the rest of the wet ingredients painted together. Mix all the dry ingredients together. And then dump all the wet crazy into the dry ingredients and mix.
