A really good recipe for delicious light waffles, specially for electric waffle makers.

  • 250g Flour (plain)
  • 7g Baking powder
  • 20g Caster sugar
  • 5g Salt
  • 475ml Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 30ml Vegetable oil


    1. Weigh all the dry ingredients, place in a large mixing bowl. Break the eggs into the milk and beat the mixture.
    2. Add the egg and milk mixture to the dry ingredients. Add the oil and mix all ingredients together until all the large lumps have been broken up. Do not over mix otherwise the waffles will be heavy when cooked.
    3. Pre heat the waffle maker and spray with oil (1 cal spray works well).
    4. Pour 3/4 of a cup of batter into the waffle maker and cook for 3-4 mins or until golden brown and crispy on the outside.
    5. Serve hot with maple syrup. Also good served with sliced banana or blueberries.
    6. Cooked waffles can be frozen and heated up in the toaster. Unused batter mixture can be kept in a container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

These 'awfully good waffles' turned out to be a disaster. Following the recipe the end mixture was all sloppy and lumpy, so much so that i had to sift the lumps out! I would recommend you should try a different recipe.

Don't think the contributor ever made these. Way way too much liquid (reduce by a third or half) and too much salt. Best to separate half the eggs and fold in whipped whites.

Probably the worst recipe I've ever come across. Not only was the batter suspiciously runny, the end result was far worse than disappointing. Rather than the anticipated "delicious light waffles", they were unpleasant, heavy, waffles that struggles to cook properly. Even after extending the guided cooking time, the outside would just gradually burn while the inside would just not cook well.

Dreadful recipe! Waffles were doughy and heavy. Will not be making this again. Had to cook them for ages. Will be throwing the rest of the mix away.

also only took about 4-5mins to cook, not sure where people get the long cooking time from?

Recipe works fine except as stated before - more sugar is needed (60g) and add vanilla extract. For our waffle press it actually made 12 waffles. We also separate the egg white and whisked and folded in after to create more air.

This recipe didn't work for us either. We followed other reviews and added vanilla extract, pinch of salt and butter instead of oil. We had a funny feeling when we saw how runny the batter was, we cooked it in the waffle maker for 10 mins then the oven for an extra 10 mins and it was still gooey inside but dry on the outside. There's not enough maple syrup in the world that can save this sad recipe :(

A really good recipe. Used 2.3g of Baking Soda rather than the 7g of Baking Powder (due to me not having any). Also used 60g of sugar rather than the 20g recommended, for a sweeter taste for the morning. :)

Great recipe thanks. I like the fact it uses a lot less oil than many of the other recipes for waffles. Just bought a waffle maker and these turned out really well. Added vanilla essence as recommended by others.

Also for a lighter version whisk the egg whites separately and add last, folding in
