  • When choosing the oil for the recipe, be sure to pick one with a neutral flavor.
  • Be sure to use fresh baking powder for best results.

  • For a healthier version, substitute the oil with applesauce and the white flour with whole wheat flour. The benefit of this substitution is that it decreases the amount of fat and increases the amount of fiber, making the waffles a healthier option.
  • For a sweeter version, substitute the oil with melted butter and the sugar with honey. The benefit of this substitution is that it adds a richer flavor and sweetness to the waffles.

Cinnamon Waffles Add 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the dry ingredients and reduce the sugar to 1/2 tablespoon. Mix the wet ingredients as usual and combine with the dry ingredients. Let set for 15 minutes and bake in a hot waffle iron.

Maple-Glazed Bacon: Crispy bacon glazed with a sweet maple syrup and a hint of smoked paprika. This savory side dish pairs perfectly with the sweet, fluffy waffles for a delicious breakfast.

Scrambled Eggs with Spinach: Scrambled eggs with fresh spinach, garlic, and Parmesan cheese make a delicious and nutritious addition to the breakfast. The savory flavors of the eggs contrast nicely with the sweet maple-glazed bacon, creating a balanced and delicious meal.


Q: How long should I let the batter set?

A: Let the batter set for 15 minutes before baking in a hot waffle iron.

Q: What temperature should I set my waffle iron?

A: Preheat your waffle iron to 375°F (190°C) for best results.

Congrats Dee on another wonderful waffle recipes. I really enjoyed these tasty treats. My grandson was rubbing his hands in glee. Thanks so much for sharing this delicious recipe. They were perfect, crisp on the outside and soft and tender inside. We garnished with fresh berries, maple syrup and whipped cream.

Very good waffle recipe. Halved the sugar. It made 7 waffles on my Belgium waffle maker. One tip, let the batter stand for 5 minutes before cooking. (Learned this from another recipe here on Zazz.)
