Easy Waffles (Buttery and Crisp)

This classic recipe for easy waffles makes golden crisp waffles with no need for beating egg whites or adding yeast. I love these buttery waffles!

Easy waffles are a great way to start the day and these unsettled times deserve a good breakfast. There is truth that starting the day right keeps the day right. Don’t you agree?

I’ve been so disoriented this week. After arriving home from Phoenix last week and then coming down with a bad cold, my head is just spinning. It could be everything that’s happening around me or it could just be cold medicine!

In any case, my family is well and safe and I hope yours is also. Alex is hunkered down in Taiwan and Zoe is immersed on the 33rd floor in Philly where she has created a new office space.

Manservant is still on the lower level and I’m right here at my desk watching it pour snow outside. I think we might be in the midst of getting our standard Colorado spring snow storm!

Easy Golden Waffles with Strawberries

Last night our small neighborhood had a safe distance BYOB happy hour while meeting on the street. Yes, it was warm out, so how quickly our weather changes.

These crazy times don’t mean we can’t communicate. In fact, we should be communicating even more.

People are lonely and meeting last night brought people onto our street that we haven’t seen in years. I encourage you to be creative and stay in touch. We all need comfort right now.

Which leads me to this easy waffle recipe.

Breakfast or even brinner is a perfect time to enjoy these golden buttery waffles. No special ingredients needed. Hopefully you have everything you need.

Though it has been crazy at the grocery, we still have been able to find all we want. I believe it will stay that way.

Yes, you need a waffle iron. I’ve had mine for years. Just a simple one with no bells and whistles. This is the closest I could find to mine so check it out if you don’t have one.

Easy Golden Waffles

These waffles are great to make when the mood strikes. No need to let them rise, or to beat egg whites. All you need is a waffle iron!

Mine is ancient, but still performs really well. I use it to make grilled cheese sandwiches and to cook tater tot waffles in. Those are to die for!

Top your waffles with whatever you like but the one thing I always do is drench mine with pure maple syrup. As a kid we only had Log Cabin and that was good, though nothing like the real thing.

Like I said I’ve been getting very distracted. Take the time to call friends at a distance and family that you care for. Everyone can use a virtual hug right now.

Tell me what you are doing. How you are getting on? Need some recipe ideas? Please let me know.

Start the day with a good breakfast. Take time to go outside. Appreciate what you have and be grateful. In my cozy little house the world is still pretty OK. And that’s good enough for me right now.

  • Method: Waffle Iron
  • Cuisine: American



2 c flour

1 t salt

4 t baking powder

2 T sugar

2 eggs, room temp

1 1/2 c milk

2/3 c melted butter or 11 Tablespoons, cooled


Put flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a mixing bowl. Stir with fork until blended.

In another bowl beat the eggs well and stir in the milk. Combine with the flour mixture until mixed. Add the melted butter and beat until blended.

Pour about 1/3 to 1/2 c batter into a hot waffle iron. How much really depends on the size of your waffle iron. Bake until the waffles are golden and crisp which for my waffle iron was about 90 seconds to two minutes. Serve with toppings of your choice.


We like our waffles with fresh berries, whipped cream and maple syrup. Other toppings might include chocolate chips, chopped nuts or bananas.

Waffles can be reheated in a toaster oven at 300 degrees for a few minutes. When you start to smell them they are warmed!

When you’re willing to make a waffle recipe with 1.5 sticks of butter…you get rewarded with incredible waffles! Great recipe. Didn’t need to grease the pan. Decadent and perfect!

I don’t have milk on hand so I used thinned out plain kefir.

Thanks Emily. Waffles are such a treat, aren't they? And I loved that you loved them!

Everyone seems to agree with you about home-made baked goods and so there’s no all-purpose flour available at most places for the time being. Definitely not online — King Arthur Flour is out of stock, amazon isn’t delivering and doesn’t have it anyway, etc.

So it’s a good idea, just not super practical!

Be Well.... mae at

I hope it changes for you soon Mae. Flour is just something I always have on hand.

I love waffles but don't make them often enough. I need to pull out the waffle iron and put it to work!

Mmmmm.....this is enough to get me to buy a new waffle iron! Only one side browns, LOL. And I love my waffles served with berries and cream---de-lish!!

You do need a new waffle iron. After all, the stores need business!
