Waffles – Hot Home Made Waffles

Waffles are a kids favourite. The stickiness of the honey or syrup. The fresh cream or ice-cream melting on a fresh waffle released from a hot waffle iron straight from the stove. The creativity of what could be put on a waffle is great from young kids. They get a sense of making their own treat, this is great for building confidence in younger kids. They are so easy to make and really are fun for the whole family.

Waffle Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 3 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups of milk (hey, you eating waffles, make sure it is full cream)
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (no! sweetex will not work!)
  • 3 tablespoons of margarine/butter (no ‘lite’ versions)
  • waffle iron


  • Separate the egg white from the egg yolk
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt – now known as ‘dry ingredients’.
  • Heat the milk, sugar and margarine/butter together – now known as the ‘hot mix’.
  • Slowly combine the ‘hot mix’ together with the ‘dry ingredients’ – now known as ‘the mixture’.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff – for those who watch ‘Come Dine with Me‘, you can try putting it over your head if you want.
  • Add the 3 separated eggs yolks to ‘the mixture
  • Fold the stiffly beaten egg whites to ‘the mixture

Waffles Cooking Directions

  • Prepare a waffles pan by heating it sufficiently on the stove.
  • Once heated open the waffles pan and spray it with a non-stick spray.
  • Spoon ‘the mixture‘ into the heated waffle iron – ensure that you do not over fill the pan.
  • Place back on the heat immediately.
  • Make the first turn within 30 seconds.
  • Turn again after a minute (or so) and slowly open the pan to see how it is going.
  • Cook to your liking – some like it golden, some like it more crispy.
  • Remove from the waffle iron.
