  • 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.

This recipe is awful. The mixture is so Watteau it’s impossible to get nice fluffy waffles out of it.

I don’t know why there are so many mixed reviews but this recipe is AMAZING for me! I have used this more times than I can count and it is really useful for trying out different flavours (My favourite is cinnamon)!

Why has this recipe got so much salt or any at all for that matter.

I really enjoyed this waffle making recipe for a 13 year old boy. I had recently got a waffle press for christmas and was eger to try it out so I found this recipe and bought the ingredients. I made these waffles for my family which they all really enjoyed some of them had yoghurt on theirs with fruit but me and my sister had golden syrup on ours. Which no matter what topping we had. We all thought it was scruptious.

Too salty and not enough sugar :( made these waffles with my waffle maker and they cooked okay, although the mixture was really runny. Wish I'd added a pinch of salt and more sugar

I really cannot understand the comments on this board. Did they read the recipe? I only read them because I decided to print out the recipe to say working from my iPad when making it. This actually works a lot better in my waffle maker than the recipe that came with it. The advice to add more sugar was a good one but that's a taste issue. I had run out of baking powder so used plain bicarb (which I always have in the cupboard) Had no problem with the quantity of milk - mixed it well and it had some lumps but this was not in the finished product. This recipe has become a firm family favourite.

Welcome to the world's most awfully AWFUL waffle recipe, written by somebody with no tastebuds, nor stomach, nor compassion for the poor naive people (such as myself) that may be tempted into attempting such an abomination. Assuming everyone enjoys a sweet waffle with a light, lump-free batter, this will make you question everything you've ever loved about waffles. After our waffle maker was ruined forever by this recipe, we decided to turn the rest of our batter into pancakes, with more sugar and LOTS of cinnamon regardless of this, they did smell nice, so 5 stars

THIS IS AN AWFUL RECIPE!! DO NOT USE IT! There is a reason the word "awful" features in the name of this recipe, it was a total disaster! When making it we realised it was a bit weird that there was so much milk but we carried on anyway. Then after reading the comments we didn't have much hope for cooking it! It's not worth trying even with following the added parts in the other comments- you may as well find a new recipe!

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.

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 :)
