Check your pantry for toppings that your family members like eating on waffles  such as maple syrup, chocolate, raspberry or strawberry jam, powdered sugar, silan ( date syrup )  or honey. Some people also like to add whipped cream or ice cream to their waffles. 

Makes 12-14 waffles. 


  • 1¾ cups flour, sifted (can combine with whole wheat or spelt flour)
  • 1 packet baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 100 gr. butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1¼-1½ cups milk, buttermilk, sour cream or whipping cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla or lemon zest
  • Butter for the pan
  • Serving suggestions:

    • 1 container sweet whipping cream
    • ¼ cup powdered sugar
    • Melted chocolate, maple syrup or honey
    • Cut-up fresh fruit, such as apples, pears, grapes, mango, strawberries or other berries


    Heat the waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. While mixing, add the melted butter, beaten eggs, milk or other liquid, and vanilla or zest. Mix vigorously until all the lumps have disappeared. 

    Lightly grease the waffle maker. Pour 2-3 tablespoons of the mixture onto the waffle maker so that it fills up all the sections. Close the device and let the waffle cook until it has turned golden brown. Remove the waffle and place it on a serving platter. Make the rest of the waffles in the same fashion until you’ve used up all the batter, greasing the device each time.

    You can serve the waffles plain, with just a little sugar or powdered sugar on top. But if you’d like to make them even more special, serve them with maple syrup, melted chocolate, whipped cream and/or cut-up fresh fruit and a ball of ice cream. 

    Level of difficulty: Medium.Time: 1 hour.Status: Dairy.

    ENJOY !!
