“For a long time I tried to find a recipe for waffles that would make them crunchy on the outside, not limp and soggy. These are great, I got the recipe from "The Joy of Cooking"”
6-8 waffles

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  2. In another bowl whisk together eggs, butter (the more butter you use the crunchier they'll be, I find that 8 tbsp is perfect), and milk.
  3. Warm melted butter may separate into flaky clumps when mixed with milk. I just stick it in the microwave for 1 minute then stir and the lumps will go away.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg/milk mixture.
  5. Gently whisk together just until combined.
  6. Baking time and amount of batter will depend on your individual waffle maker. I use about a cup of batter for 2 waffles and mine take about 3 1/2 minutes to bake. I like to bake mine until they are a dark golden brown. Cooking spray usually isn't needed if you use 8 tbsp or more butter in the batter.
