Classic Vanilla Waffles

I love making waffles! I own a whole cookbook dedicated to waffles, and I make savoury ones, sweet ones, fancy ones, waffle sandwiches, fries, well everything waffle.  This morning I made classic vanilla waffles. They are easy to whip up on even a weekday morning, and get that crispness on the outside, and the slightly sweet softness inside. The recipe can easily be halved if you are only cooking for 2, or you can make the whole batch (I get 5 big round waffles out of it) and freeze the extras in Ziploc bags. Then toast or reheat them in the oven. 

First: preheat your waffle maker. 


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Whisk together. 

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 TB sugar
  • 1 TB baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Whisk together. 

Now add the wet ingredients to the dry, it will thicken slightly. 

I spray cooking spray before I pour waffle batter in every time. Lightly spread batter towards the edges. Don’t overfill!

 And I use mini tongs to pull out the waffles. 

Keep extras warm in the oven on a metal rack placed on a cookie sheet to keep them crisp. 

Now add your favourite toppings – go nuts! 

MMm fresh okanagan peaches and berries. 

Don’t forget the whipped cream! ( you can see it melting because this waffle is hot and ready to eat).
