Ready In:




  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.
  • Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well.
  • Let the batter sit for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a waffle iron.
  • Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily.
  • Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles.
  • Serve immediately with butter and syrup.

    Nice and light. Makes 3 in the belgian waffle-maker.

    These are great waffles... they come out of the waffle maker perfectly browned and crispy. For some reason, sometimes the batter overflows and we haven't figured out why. It might have to do with our altitude and the volume of eggs. I like to make baggies with all the dry ingredients and store them in the cabinet, this makes them quicker to put together later on.

    I have several waffle recipes I make and this is one of our favorites. I’ve also made waffle sticks (oven) and added blueberries to the batch. Although the blueberries were good, I’d leave them out. These waffles are outstanding! The secret ingredient is the cornstarch – makes them so crisp!

    Just made this. Used 2% milk. Turned out great. Taste was excellent. I am excited that I don't have to buy pre-made waffle mix anymore.

    crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Perfect!

    Absolutely the best! I agree with another chef, I'd like to replace some of the oil with butter. Yep, these are good reason to add to my long list of insanities. Made for Alphabet Soup Tag.


<a href="http://bp-grafix.net/sitebuilder"target=new><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i185/glittergus/icons/i.gif" border=0></a> I am a proud mother of three healthy boys aged 15,11 and 5. I'm originally from the tiny island of Bermuda and have been living in Edinburgh since July 2005. I've been collecting recipes since I was about 14 or 15 and been cooking and baking since then as well. I love all kinds of crafts also. In my spare time if I'm not in the kitchen; I crochet, make jewelry, bead, knit, sew, cross stitch, do plastic canvas and quilt. I have a short attention span, so I have plenty of different craft choices when I get bored of doing something. Oh, and I also like to read, listen to music, fiddle with any electronic gadget, collect dvd's and watch them, and I'm an internetaholic! :-) I keep a craft blog at http://hobbyzu.blogspot.com and I sell my crocheted items and patterns at http://hobbyzu.com. I keep pretty busy and being self employed gives me more time to explore cooking! :-) I'm mostly interested in cook books featuring regular old home cooking and favorites. When I moved to the UK I had to get rid of my cookbook collection. I did keep all my Bermudian cookbooks, charity cookbooks and 'The Foods of Israel Today' and Better Homes and Gardens 'Hometown Favorites'. <a href="http://bp-grafix.net/sitebuilder"target=new><img src="http://i72.photobucket.com/albums/i185/glittergus/icons/g5.gif" border=0></a> I am most passionate when it comes to my family and caring for them. Getting to feed them is an added bonus! Lucky for me, my boys are steadily growing pigs with bottomless pits for stomachs! lol :-) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
