Best way to spend a Saturday morning?

Making huge stacks of waffles, covered in melty butter, a cascade of maple syrup, and lots of powdered sugar. 😉 Serve it with a bowl of fresh summer berries and you’ve got yourself one yummy breakfast.

BUT no one wants a tough/dry/flavorless waffle – we all want a super light and fluffy, slightly crispy, melty waffle to indulge in. Well, I have finally done it! After testing lots and lot (AND LOTS.) of waffle recipes I have finally found the winner.

Before my search began, we hardly ever used our waffle maker. (I know.) We store ours in the top cabinet and most of the time we completely forget it’s even up there. I can assure you that will no longer be the case – after making waffles so much lately, I don’t think I will be able to go back to making pancakes ever again. How come I never realized how easy/quick waffles are?? And how much more yummy than pancakes they are?

These waffles are on the table in under 15 minutes – take that weekend breakfast rush! (When everyone wakes up hungry – it’s totally a thing.)

We tried all sorts of different techniques like, adding butter instead of oil, more milk, more flour, egg whites beaten to stiff peaks, baking powder, both baking powder and baking soda and on and on and on. Everyone swears by the egg white method, but I actually found that they waffles were almost too airy and it took so much time to whip the egg whites!

What we ended up with was a soft, fluffy, light, sweet, flavorful, slightly crispy waffle that literally melts in your mouth after being dunked in a maple syrup – just like the ones you get from hotels or waffle houses. Perfection.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Waffles

This is a recipe for our favorite homemade waffles – slightly crispy on the outside, and so light and fluffy on the inside that they melts in your mouth. These are the ULTIMATE homemade waffles. 

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/4 cups almond meal
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder (I use double acting baking powder for extra fluffiness)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk (1%, 2%, skim, almond, coconut all work)
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, almond meall, sugar baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup, whisk together milk, oil, eggs, and vanilla; until smooth.
  4. Gently fold the milk mixture into the flour mixture and stir until smooth. It is okay if the batter has a few lumps. Do not overmix.
  5. Pour batter onto hot waffle iron and bake in batches.
  6. Serve the waffles immediately with butter and maple syrup, or your choice of toppings. Waffles are best enjoyed the same day. Extras may be refrigerated up to 3 days. Waffles may be frozen, up to 3 months, then warmed in the toaster.
