Homemade Waffles are so easy to make! They are great for breakfast, brunch or even dinner. These waffles are so fluffy – you’ll want to make them again and again!

One of the perks of staying home with my girls is that almost every morning I can go into the kitchen and make a fancy breakfast for us to enjoy.

Some of our favorite moments are those when we just sit around the table, eat the delicious food we just made and chat.

Homemade Waffles are a stable part of our breakfast rotation. There’s just something about hot fresh homemade waffles.

Those crispy edges, that fluffy middle, the way the waffles soak up butter or maple syrup. Or the way they marry well with whipped cream, jam or whatever topping you like.

When I take a bite of fresh homemade waffles and sip some green tea, I remind myself that I am living my best life. You can’t tell me otherwise!

I have a small waffle maker I acquired years ago. It is the only waffle maker I have ever owned. It does the job well.

My waffle maker only makes two waffles at once so I am looking to upgrade to a waffle iron that makes 4 waffles at ones so my girls don’t have to wait too long for their hot waffles in the morning.

How To Make Homemade Waffles

Combine the dry ingredients. In a bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, ground nutmeg, and cinnamon. Lightly whisk them together.

Combine the wet ingredients. In a bowl, combine eggs, milk, melted butter, and vanilla extra. Whisk together to combine.

Mix the dry and wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Cook the waffles. Follow the instructions of your waffle maker. It takes about a quarter cup of batter to make 1 waffle.

Tips for the Perfect Homemade Waffles

Actually, there is just one main tip. Don’t overmix your batter. Mix until just combined then end there. It is normal for the batter to look slightly lumpy.

  1. Hi Precious!

    I was wondering if there are any good Farmers Markets or African shops (or Asian shops with some African foods) in So Cal you have checked out and would recommend?

    I LOVE your blog. Whenever I’m missing Cameroonian food from back home I go to your YouTube channel and watch your cooking videos!

    1. Hi Sarah, what part of SoCal are you in? If you Google “African stores near me” or “Asian stores near me”, you should find some good ones, Also, I am so glad to hear that my YouTube channel has been useful. Thank you, dear.
