  • 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.

I wish I read all the comments before because I just binned the waffles, because they were way too salty . As everyone mentioned below - pinch of salt would be enough.

I just cut down on the salt and the results were lovely in our new waffle maker

Insanely salty. DO NOT MAKE I started to make these and when I had measured out the 5g of salt as instructed I thought this doesn't look right. Quick look at the comments and it seems I was right. 5g of salt is an insanely high amount for just a few waffles, I didn't make them as they would just be chucked out, how can anyone eat that much salt and enjoy it? Jaime O has great simple waffle recipe that I used instead.

Works perfectly and you can easily make them without sugar as well and taste just as good. Also can cut down on salt and oil if you want.

Great recipe! First time making waffles and was delighted with the result as was he! Delicious, we just had two and saved the rest for next day.

I have been making this recipe for about 3 years and my waffles always turn out really nice and fluffy. The mixture is thick and it tastes really good, it's not goo oily or too lumpy. I dont know why there are so many bad reviews about this, as it makes me wonder if people follow the recipe exactly. You can even half this recipe to make less. Thanks for posting this!

Terrible recipe. But use a pinch of salt, 300 ml milk (oat milk works well), no sugar - you’re going to cover them in Nutella and maple syrup anyway! - and a chunk of melted butter instead of oil (or half the oil) and they’re perfect. i.e. use a different recipe. Oddly though, I have been using this recipe now for 3 years, just never as written. :)

Yep, should have read the reviews. I thought the mixture was too runny and I was right. Doughy, dense and frankly inedible.

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.

Great recipe but leave out the salt. I don't add salt to anything really so just left it out automatically and my kids love these waffles

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 :)

approx conversions if you can't be bothered weighing: 2 cups flour 2.7 tsp baking powder 1.6 tablespoon caster sugar 1 tsp salt 2 eggs 2 tablespoons vegetable oil 2 cups milk
