  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (can substitute with maple extract or half vanilla/half maple extract)
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter


I have left out sugar in the mix since we usually eat this with syrup and fruits, which have enough sugar in them. The vanilla extract can be substituted with maple extract if eating with maple syrup for a more intense maple flavor.


Step 1
Turn on waffle maker. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.
Step 2
In a large bowl, combine milk, vanilla and eggs. Mix well.
Step 3
Add the flour mixture into the milk mixture. Mix well. Add the melted butter.
Step 4
Pour a little more than 1/2 cup of batter onto your single waffle maker. Spread mix around to coat the waffle maker. Close the waffle maker and cook until golden brown. Serve with your favorite toppings.
