Light, fluffy, and not too sweet. These Homemade Waffles are the perfect vessel for drowning in maple syrup (like I prefer) or topping with butter, fresh fruit and more!
Why You'll Love This Recipe
There is no time like the holidays to spend that extra time and effort on brunch! It's the perfect time to make Homemade Waffles! This easy Homemade Waffles recipe makes light, fluffy, and perfectly golden brown waffles. You can top these Homemade Waffles with butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, Homemade Whipped Cream, Homemade Lemon Curd, or even Brown Butter Butterscotch Sauce!

Tips for Homemade Waffles
• I have a round waffle maker, it's Cuisinart. You can use a round or square waffle maker, it doesn't matter, you can make these Homemade Waffles with whatever kind of waffle maker you have!
• Make sure to use whole milk, as that will give these waffles more flavor.
• I always prefer to melt the butter over the stovetop, but you can also melt it in the microwave as well. Either option is fine as long as it's melted.
• When I add the 1 cup of waffle batter to the iron, I use a spatula to help spread it out evenly!
• You can freeze these waffles easily! If you don't eat them all, just put them in an airtight container in the freezer. I will then put them in the toaster right out of the freezer for fresh waffles in no time.
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.

Homemade WafflesDifficulty: Easy
This recipe for homemade waffles makes four large waffles, you can make smaller ones by adding half the batter to your waffle iron.
1 1/2 cup organic milk
1 1/4 cup (283 grams) organic salted butter
284 grams (2 1/4 cups) organic all purpose flour
2 tablespoons organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon organic nutmeg
4 organic large eggs
1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract
- For serving
organic salted butter
organic maple syrup
- In a small pot, add the milk and butter and put over medium heat. Melt completely and remove from heat. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add the flour, cane sugar, sea salt, baking powder, and nutmeg and whisk together. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, and milk mixture and whisk to combine completely.
- Allow waffle iron to get warm, I cooked these on setting 4 on my waffle iron that I linked above. But, medium on any iron will do! Measure 1 cup of batter into the waffle iron (if you have a smaller iron, you’ll have to do less). Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on your waffle iron.
- Serve immediately and store extra waffles in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
- High Altitude — Follow the recipe as noted.
