Waffles, the quintessential breakfast comfort food, alongside pancakes. I love them both equally! Which of the two I make depends entirely on my mood or a specific family request. There is something extra special about homemade! Don’t you agree? A perfect, crispy on the outside, light and airy on the inside Belgian Waffle, is just moments away with this Homemade Belgian Waffle Mix recipe!
We have been using the original recipe from Ashton over at Something Swanky for a couple of years now. IT. IS. THE. BEST.
It just is.
Her original recipe, which you can find by clicking HERE, is super easy and fairly quick. However, I wanted to speed up the process so that we could have Belgian waffles on busy mornings. Fewer steps, fewer dishes, you know the deal.
Also, I thought it would be nice to have a mix on hand for freezer meal cooking. So I adapted Ashton’s recipe to a homemade Belgian waffle mix recipe!
These make great frozen waffles! Just pop them in the toaster and, viola. Hot fresh breakfast in seconds. 🙂 Click To Tweet
It’s nice for the kiddos too. My kids aren’t big fans of cereal, they like a hot breakfast. ♥ Premade mix and freezer cooking make my homemaking life easier!
What is The Best Waffle Maker to Use?
There is no better waffle than one made in an antique cast iron waffle maker. I don’t know why they taste better made in cast iron, but they do.
Maybe it’s the nostalgia of it. Or the added iron you get from cooking in cast iron. If you ever have the opportunity to purchase one from a second-hand store, do it! The internet is full of DIY restoration for old cast iron pieces. It’s super easy and well worth the effort.
This time around my plan was to make a batch for the freezer so I used my Dash mini electric waffle maker.
It makes the cutest waffles that are the perfect size for any toaster! Perfect waffles every time.
I found mine on Amazon for under $10
Walmart.com has the Nostalgia brand mini waffle maker, I haven’t tried it but it has great reviews! It looks very much like the Dash mini waffle maker. The same size waffles as the Dash, again perfect for the toaster.
Minimal Ingredient Homemade Belgian Waffle Mix Recipe.
Only seven ingredients 🙂
- Baking Powder
When you’re ready to make fresh Belgian waffles, you’ll mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and oil. Then add 2 cups of the mix. Whisk it up until smooth and then cook them up. When mixed the recipe will make 18 waffles! The mini Dash waffle maker takes just shy of 1/4 cup for each waffle.
A full 1/4 cup will cause a bit of overflow as you can see in the photo above.
How to Store Your Homemade Belgian Waffle Mix.
Keep your waffle mix in an airtight container in a cool dry place. It will last for up to two months if stored properly. I found my containers at Walmart.com and I absolutely love them! They are nice looking, durable, and definitely airtight.
I will be working on some pretty printable labels that you can download and print very soon. I wanted to get this recipe out asap. For now, I used my label maker so as not to confuse my homemade Belgian waffle mix with my rye flour. Gag!
Could you imagine?!
I hope you enjoy these waffles! They are so good. ♥ If you try this recipe tag me on Instagram @makingmyabode, I love to see people trying my recipes. 🙂
