We often think of waffles as a wonderful weekend treat, but if you make these waffle recipes ahead of time, you’ll even get to enjoy them on weekdays. These 3 homemade waffle recipes freeze well. Be sure to give them a try.
My family has a favorite pancake recipe that is made ahead and stored as a dry mix. When we want to have a special weekend breakfast or eat breakfast for dinner, this is the recipe we reach for. It also doubles as pancake mix. Just reduce the eggs by one and add 1/4 cup of water.
Make-Ahead Waffle Recipe
Mix the dry ingredients ahead of time and add the wet ingredients when you are ready to cook. It makes waffles easy - even on weekdays.
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 3/4 cup quick oats use rolled oats and pulse in a blender until they are coarsely chopped but not powdery.
- 3/4 cup flax seed No flax seed? use an equal amount of quick oats instead.
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup dry milk substitute with 1 cup milk, reduce water (below) by 1 cup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 4 medium eggs
- 1 3/4 cups water reduce water by 1 cup if you used fresh milk
- 1/3 cup honey
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Measure all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, mix together
Whisk together wet ingredients in another bowl
Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients, mixing together until combined
Ladle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of batter on to your prepared waffle iron
Cook until the waffle releases from the iron (time depends on your iron)
Lisa’s Easy Whole Wheat Waffle Recipe features applesauce in place of some of the fat. If you are looking for a lower-fat alternative, try her recipe.
Kiku Corner has a Belgian Waffle Recipe that will give you a different flavor than the traditional American recipe. These traditional Liege waffles from Belgium are made from a buttery, eggy brioche-like dough that is studded with pearl sugar. Yum!
Welcome to Farm Fresh Tuesday #9!
I’ve teamed up with my terrific homesteading buddies for a weekly blog hop and we’re super excited that you’re here.
What is a blog hop? It’s a place for bloggers to put their most recent articles about topics that interest you. It’s like searching for all the things you love about homesteading without having to scroll through a google search on individual topics. Each week you’ll find a new blogger and a few new articles that you’ll love.
