  • 1 tsp (5 g) Baking Powder
  • ½ tsp (4 g) Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp (2 g) Sea Salt
  • 1 TBSP (15 g) Lemon Juice
  • 1 cup minus 1 TBSP (225 g) Milk
  • 1 (50 g) Egg
  • 3 TBSP (45 g) Unsalted Butter, melted OR Sunflower Oil
  • ½ tsp (3 g) Vanilla extract (optional)
  • For waffle maker surface Non-stick Spray or vegetable oil
4 Cups Batter
  • 2 cups (250 g) All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 TBSP (25 g) Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tsp (10 g) Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp (7 g) Baking Soda
  • ½ tsp (3 g) Sea Salt
  • 2 TBSP (30 g) Lemon Juice
  • 2 cups minus 2 TBSP (450 g) Milk

  • 6 TBSP (85 g) Unsalted Butter, melted OR Sunflower Oil
  • 1 tsp (5 g) Vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions
  1. Heat waffle iron
  2. In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients
  3. In a medium sized bowl combine all wet ingredients and whisk
    
Using a separate bowl for wet mixture then adding to the dry mixture results in less clumps
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry and whisk. Do NOT whisk again later. You will flatten the batter.
Bake a waffle
  1. Use non-stick spray or brush some oil on waffle iron plates
  2. For an 8” round iron, pour 1 cup of batter in centre. The amount depends on your waffle maker size. The instructions will usually say how much to use.
  3. Bake for about 5 min. Time and temp effect how a waffle bakes. Higher temp uses lower time. The shorter the time the bigger the difference between crust and inside softness. Do not open early to check as this will tear the waffle. If waffle too dark, lower temperature setting. Auto waffle makers will beep when waffle is done.
  4. Remove the waffle by gently loosening the edges with a heat-proof plastic spatula, wooden spatula or non-stick coated tongs.
  5. Serve immediately or place in a 200F (90C) oven to keep them warm. For left overs, place them on a rack until cool. Freeze in a freezer bag or plastic container.
  6. Toast frozen waffle to serve. I place them in a countertop oven at 350F (175C) for about 5 minutes.
Variations
Coffee Flavour: Add 1 tsp instant coffee per cup of batter into the WET ingredients to allow more time to dissolve

Espresso: Use ½ cup stovetop espresso and ½ cup milk in place of 1 cup milk. Make the espresso ahead of time, permit it to cool. ½ cup is just slightly less than a 3 cup maker. Stir coffee before adding as some residue settles on bottom.

Orange Juice: Use 1 cup orange juice in place of 1 cup milk and lemon juice. Juice with lots of pulp results in bursts of flavour when you hit them.

Buttermilk: Use 1 cup or well shaken buttermilk in place of 1 cup milk and lemon juice.

Potato: Add 2 TBSP (8 g) Potato flakes to a 2 cup recipe or 4 TBSP to a 4 cup recipe. The potato flakes add a creaminess to the waffle interior.
