Best Vanilla Waffle Batter Recipe: Your Waffle Maker Won't Know What Hit It

What is it about waffles? Is it the crisp outside and chewy inside? The maple syrup or honey that pools inside those little holes? The smell that fills the house as they cook in the waffle iron? Sigh...

Whatever it is, this basic waffle recipe spiked with vanilla will soon be your go-to recipe for breakfast or brunch. The simple waffle batter is made with all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, eggs, oil and vanilla. Stir the ingredients until just combined and then pour into your preheated waffle iron. If you are a cinnamon lover, add a few shakes of ground cinnamon into the batter.

Serve these vanilla waffles with maple syrup, homemade brown sugar syrup or pancake syrup. For brunch add a side of bacon, hash browns, breakfast sausage and fresh fruit. This is one waffle batter recipe you don't want to lose. Print it now!
