Ingredients

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

Method

    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.

Super simple and super tasty! Not sure why there are any negative comments, if you’ve got an electric waffle maker and you like simple, tasty waffles - this is our go to recipe. Every Saturday morning we either make these or American fluffy pancake stacks... fuels us for an active day ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

awful is in the title for a reason, they were extremely messy and far too runny. mixture should be lumpy but not like that and you shouldn’t have that much oil in anything unless you’re aiming for cardiac arrest.

Do not try this at home! I had made the dry mixture when I read the reviews so I managed to take a lot of the salt out. I used a little melted butter as I could face putting all that oil in it! I tried to make waffles with this recipe and not ideal / so I made into drop scones/ not ideal. Find an alternative recipe!!

Absolutely grim , unless you enjoy salty waffles I would absolutely not recommend. Wasted so many ingredients seeing as these were virtually inedible

Easy & tasty, made 6 big waffles. I used melted butter rather than oil and added some vanilla extract with a bit more sugar. They were finished off in no time :-)

Don't add that much salt, a good pinch or two does just fine. I never added the oil either. Just used the spray on oil on the waffle iron. Batter will be a little lumpy if you mix by hand but it won't matter in a waffle iron. Other than that they taste great, don't know why people think they taste eggy...

First time I made this the waffles where too salty. Guess I should have read the comments before making them. The second time I made them I made them without the salt and they came out tasting like egg. I will try this recipe again using just 1 egg. My advice is definitely do not add the salt.

Add only one pinch of salt!! 5g is way too much. You may need to add 50g more flour as well, make sure you sift it first though :)
