Homemade Waffles

The first official snow day of the school year is finally here!  It's safe to say that there's nothing better than a big breakfast made at leisure on a cold, snowy morning.

Last year's approximate 15 snow days forced me to be resourceful.  I would always try to prepare for snowpocalyptic forecasts, but sometimes, those days caught me off guard.

And that's where this recipe comes in handy.  All the ingredients are pantry staples!  I can guarantee that everything on this list of ingredients is probably in your house on the regular!  So handy on that surprise snow day!  Not to mention, healthier than a prepackaged mix too!

Homemade Waffles
(recipe source)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1 stick of melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

Prepare your waffle iron by preheating and greasing.  In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla, milk, and melted butter to eggs and stir.  Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients.  Mix until smooth.  Follow directions for your waffle iron regarding batter amount and cook time!  Top with syrup and butter.  Makes 4 to 6 waffles!

*These freeze like a dream!  I break them into fourths before freezing because the pieces fit in my toaster perfectly!  They toast beautifully too!  And I love the leftovers because they don't taste like leftovers!

Now, what to do with the rest of my snow day.....

Stay in pajamas?

  1. We have a snow day here, too! It's our 2nd one of the year but still wonderful nonetheless :) Waffles sounds amazing -- maybe breakfast for dinner??

  2. Brilliant! I would like to make a batch of those and freeze them, then toast them in the mornings like Eggo Waffles. :) And this snow day came at the perfect time-extending this into a four day weekend.

    1. That's a perfect idea! They are so handy to have around! Think we'll get Wednesday off too?

  3. yum! I had to make homemade mix a few weeks ago because I was out of Bisquick...I really should just make them from scratch all the time!

  4. Sheesh! I'm going to have to go out and buy myself a waffle maker because of you and Coterie Creative!

    1. YES! GO GET ONE! I think they are pretty cheap....$20 ish? WORTH IT! (I sure wanna hit up a Coterie event one of these days!)

  5. I make waffles all the time, but generally just from the mix in the box (technically, it's pancake mix since I'm not adding anything but water, but I like the waffles it makes, so...). I may have to make some from scratch tomorrow - it's going to be a great day for waffle making! (seriously, this snow!)
