My husband loves to make breakfast. We used to go out to breakfast a lot but once we had the kids it became easier to bring the breakfast to us. Thankfully he is an excellent cook! Our weekends are usually slow moving this time of year and we like to enjoy a cup of coffee and enjoy the morning. Often he makes scones or eggs and potatoes. Over the weekend we added a little more fun to our morning routine with homemade waffles that were delicious and kid friendly.
What you Need
- 2 Cups Flour
- 1 tbs Baking Powder
- 2 tbs Sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 cup milk
- vanilla yogurt cup
- ¼ vegetable oil
- 4 tbs melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- Combine dry ingredients together in a bowl.
- Mix wet ingredients together in a bowl.
- Combine dry & wet ingredients.
- You may want to spray the waffle maker so your waffles do not stick.
- Pour about ¾ cup onto waffle maker. Waffles will be a golden brown when they are done. This takes about 3-6 minutes depending on your heat.
- We kept our waffles in the oven set to 200 degrees to keep them warm so we could all eat together. You can also serve immediately.

I love making homemade waffles because it is a great way to include the entire family. Each of my three kids had a job. My older daughter helped pour the batter on the waffle maker. My son spread the peanut butter on the waffle. My youngest son put whip cream on the waffle. Everyone had something to do.
They also liked brainstorming ideas for our waffles. There really are endless ideas. Next time I would love to do something with strawberries. Weekend waffles have become a new favorite family tradition.
