Fluffy and flavourful on the inside and crispy on the outside. Simply perfect. And one bowl easy!



  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 7 Tbsp vegetable oil or other neutral tasting liquid oil
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or buttermilk


  1. Preheat your waffle iron before starting to mix your batter.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a well in the middle. Break the eggs into the well and beat lightly with a fork. Add the oil and milk and stir until moistened (Some lumps are ok. Doesn't need to be smooth. Just moistened.)
  3. Spoon batter into hot waffle iron and cook until golden and crispy.
