Waffles of Insane Greatness


As witty as my titles may be, I stole this one. We were having an old mother hubbard dinner night  last week and that usually means breakfast for dinner at our house. I was tired of my same old pancakes and waffle recipes so I went to food network in search of something new. I found the “waffles of insane greatness” and decided to go for it. I mean with a title that promising how can you go wrong?

I figured this would be a great weekend post since weekends are the perfect time for a hot breakfast. The waffles were insanely great and the unique combination of ingredients and letting the batter sit really made them taste different than typical recipes. The waffles turned out light and crispy and delicious. My only advice is to double the recipe as in our giant belgian waffle maker it only made 3-4 waffles, so there was not enough for the whole family, (I had to double it at the last minute). If you want a great way to start off your sunday it is ok to go crazy for this waffly treat!

Waffles of Insane Greatness

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole milk or buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Butter and syrup, for serving


In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well. Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and mix well. Let the batter sit for 30 minutes. -This is key!

Preheat a waffle iron. Do not use non-stick spray on the waffle iron; the oil in the batter will allow the waffle to release easily. Follow the directions on your waffle iron to cook the waffles. Only makes 3 or so large waffles in a belgian waffle maker, so you may want to double the recipe. Serve immediately with butter and syrup. For best results use real maple syrup, none of that aunt jemima crap 😉
