Basic waffles are a cornerstone of any delicious breakfast. Golden, light and wonderfully crunchy, they’re the perfect way to start your morning. The best part is that they can be customised in any way, so pile on the cream, bacon, fruit, chocolate, or anything you want!

Basic waffles

Serves: Makes 6 large or 12 standard-sized waffles
Cooking Time: 15 minutes


  • 300g cake flour
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) sugar
  • 20ml (4 tsp) baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 450ml full-cream milk
  • 125ml (½ cup) sunflower oil
  • butter/oil, to grease
  • maple syrup, to serve
  • icing sugar, to dust



Preheat the waffle iron.


Sift the dry ingredients into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, whisk together the eggs, milk and oil and slowly add to the dry ingredients, whisking continuously, to form a smooth batter.


Grease the preheated waffle iron, pour in the batter and cook until golden brown, 3 – 5 minutes. Serve with maple syrup and a dusting of icing sugar.
