This recipe can be used to make either pancakes or waffles. My dad was always the pancake/waffle maker in our family and this is the recipe that he always used.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir in dry ingredients.
  2. Stir in milk, eggs and shortening.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Bake in hot waffle iron or fry as pancakes in skillet.
  5. Note: Makes about 14 4-inch waffles, these also freeze well and are cheaper and better than the frozen waffles you buy in the store.

Easy recipe to make, would be great for savory toppings since there is no sugar in it.

Just realized I was out of waffle mix, and turned to recipezaar for help! This recipe was perfect and I had "real" waffles in no time! I'll definitely be using this again...thanks for sharing!
