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.

Awful Too salty, too much oil. Had to throw away.

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 :-)

Tastes like an omelette

Gifted a Breville Waffle Maker for Christmas, and liked this menu as it didn’t involve using butter, veg oil instead. Dead easy to prepare, (no salt, my preference) but added a little vanilla essence as that is what many other recipes suggest. What can I say, it just worked, needed longer than 3 minutes, but clearly the timing is dependant on the equipment used and it’s power output. So the results were fine, but I suspect butter would be an improvement, but then I wouldn’t have used this recipe.

This recipe ruined my friend and I's lovely morning. The waffles don't cook properly and no matter what you do, they taste like egg!!!!! Won't recommend this recipe to anyone else.

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)!

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.

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 :)
