Hello Tatertots & Jello Readers! I’m Laurie from Gallamore West, and I’m so excited to be back here contributing in 2015. Today I’m sharing one of my absolute family favorite recipes with you, Homemade Waffles. We also call them Sunday Morning Waffles because it’s our Sunday morning tradition to have a big homemade waffle breakfast. These waffles are perfect because they are buttery, crunchy deliciousness on the outside and absolute melt in your mouth softness on the inside.
Here’s all you need to make your own delicious “Sunday Morning Waffles” at home.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs, separated*
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups milk
Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk together all dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and set aside. Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl and set aside. Pour milk into 2 cup glass measuring cup or small bowl. Add in vanilla extract and stir to combine. Separate eggs, adding the yolks to the milk/vanilla mixture and stirring to combine and putting the whites into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix until soft peaks form. At this point, you’ll have four different bowls of ingredients.
*If you accidentally get some of the yolk into your egg whites, they won’t form soft peaks regardless of how long you try to whip them so if that happens, just skip whipping the egg whites and add the eggs whole to your milk mixture. Your waffles won’t fluff up quite as much, but will still taste amazing.
Add your milk mixture then the melted butter to the dry ingredients, using a wire whisk to combine. Then use a rubber spatula to gently fold in the fluffed egg whites, leaving some of the fluffiness.
Then just cook according to your waffle maker’s instructions and serve immediately. We love to top ours with all kinds of delicious toppings- peanut butter and syrup, banana slices and chopped pecans, strawberries and whipped cream… the possibilities go on and on.
This recipe makes a good size batch of waffles. Sometimes they’re gobbled up quickly, but I love it when we have some leftover. I just put them in a big Ziploc bag and store them in the refrigerator. Two minutes in the toaster and they’re hot and ready for a weekday morning breakfast!
On a side note… Our kitchen has terrible lighting for photos, but I made sure to include a few for you because we PAINTED OUR COUNTERTOPS a few weeks ago!! I absolutely LOVE how they came out and I’d love for you to pop over to Gallamore West and check them out. If you’re looking to update your kitchen on a budget, you’ll love this post! We’re going to paint our 1990’s oak cabinets within a few weeks, and I have an AMAZING backsplash to share with you too so be sure to check it out and follow along on our Gallamore West Budget Kitchen Makeover.
Thank you so much for having me here today at Tatertots & Jello, Jen. It’s always such a fun treat to be able to share my recipes with your readers! xoxo

My daughter loves this recipe! She requests this almost every weekend and eats them up without butter or syrup. I also love how many it makes. I can freeze the leftovers and pop them in the toaster during the week. So much better than the store bought waffles. Thank you for letting my daughter think that mommy makes the best waffles ever!
Thanks for the recipe!
I only have salted butter. Can I use it and just omit the salt?
Hi! Yes!! You can use salted butter. Just don’t add the salt that’s listed in the recipe if you use salted butter.
I just made these this morning and they are so yummy. I love that your waffles didn’t have tons of ingredients in them, unlike some others and I love the use of butter instead of oil and how little sugar was in them. Most recipes seem to call for more sugar and I find that unnecessary. Thank you for this recipe!
You are welcome! I am glad you liked them!

Okay, I actually see now that there are further instructions :p just throughout the blog post. As someone who uses their laptop to look at recipes while I cook, might I suggest editing the bottom part of your post with the numbered instructions by adding the rest of the steps you listed in your blog post? often times my hands are messy and if someone is just cooking by looking at the recipe instructions at the bottom, it’s annoying to have to go scroll back to try to find the next steps.
We made these for the first time a couple weeks ago and they are AMAZING. I’m getting ready to make them again this morning – even though they’re a little more effort than dumping mix in a bowl, the taste is so far beyond that that it’s worth it. Especially with some strawberries and whipped cream – yum!!
Thanks for the recipe, it’s definitely one that’s going into the family rotation!!
