  • Waffle iron


  • 1 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup milk 1% or 2% preferred
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Dash of salt


  • Heat up your waffle iron according to its particular instructions.
  • While the waffle iron is heating, add the melted butter, egg, milk, and vanilla extract in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Add in the all-purpose flour, white sugar, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  • Spray down the waffle iron, or brush on some butter with a pastry brush.
  • Pour in half of the mixture (about 1/3 cup) into the waffle iron. Close and cook to the iron's instructions—usually until it beeps.
  • Repeat for the second waffle.
  • Serve with berries, syrup, butter, or any other toppings you desire.
