This tried and true waffle recipe is perfect for brunch or other special occasions—even dessert! In fact, to make an amazing waffle dessert, try drizzling the waffles with crème anglaise and fresh berries.
The batter is going to be a little bit runnier than pancake batter, but the waffles will cook up crispy and airy. Be sure to follow the instructions for your waffle maker, since they're all a bit different.
If you don't have time to make the waffles from scratch this time, see this list of the 10 Best Waffles Mixes.
Preheat your waffle iron to its hottest setting. Placing a cookie-sheet under it can help catch any batter drippage during cooking.
Preheat oven to 200 F.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Beat the eggs thoroughly. Whisk in sugar, milk, and oil.
Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until combined. Don't overmix!
Spray both surfaces of your waffle iron with cooking spray.
Ladle 4 to 6 oz (1/2 to 3/4 cup) batter on the iron and close it. It's not unusual for a bit of batter to seep out of the edges of the iron. If there's excessive leakage, use less batter for the next waffle.
Cook until the waffle iron's indicator light shows that cooking is complete, or until no more steam comes out. The finished waffle should be golden brown and crispy.
Lift the waffle out of the iron with a pair of tongs and either serve right away or transfer it to the oven to keep warm.
Top your waffles with maple syrup, fresh berries, and/or whipped cream.
