  • 250 g (2 cups) Plain Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Powder (level)
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 75 g (3 Tablespoons) Sugar
  • 2 cups (1 pint) Milk
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 125 g Butter (melted)


  • Mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, sugar) together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave and allow to cool.
  • Pour 2 cups of milk into the flour mixture, add the eggs and whisk until there are no lumps.
  • Add the melted butter to the milk and flour and whisk together to combine.
  • Put a small amount of mixture into a pre-heated waffle maker and allow to cook until golden brown.
  • Remove from waffle maker and place on a cake rack to cool.
  • Makes 10 waffles


Allow the melted butter to cool before slightly before mixing into the milk and flour mixture. 
If you are making savoury waffles then omit the sugar.
Do not overfill the waffle-maker.  The mixture will spread when you close the lid, and will ooze out of the sides of the waffle-maker if you have used too much batter.
The waffles are done when you can open the lid of the waffle-maker without the mixture sticking to the plates.
Do not stack hot waffles on top of each other - the steam inside will cause them to go soggy.  Place them on a single layer on a metal cake rack to cool and they will stay crispy.
