  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat waffle iron. Gently coat with nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Use the back of a spoon to create a "well" in the center.
  • Whisk the two eggs into the milk until well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients (butter, milk/egg mixture, vanilla) into the well of the dry ingredients and whisk until blended.  (Note: the batter will be slightly lumpy, do not over-mix.)
  • Scoop the batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp.  (About 2-3 minutes, but this will vary wildly depending on your waffle maker.) 
  • Serve immediately or lay on a wire cooling rack until cool.  Store leftovers in an airtight bag in the freezer.
