Waffle Love


It's no surprise to many of you that we love waffles, especially the kids. They would eat them everyday if they could. The kidlywinks do eat waffles a couple of times during the week.  I like quick, simple and easy and this waffle mix fits the bill. It's actually a pancake recipe that I've had for many years, so if you don't have a waffle maker, don't worry, you can still make this mix. We choose to use a waffle maker because, well, it's fun and the thing beeps at you at an alarming volume that you can't ignore. Pancakes on the stove on a weekday morning would be a burnt mess around here I'm afraid.

Every once in a while I assemble the mix. It's quick. It's easy.
Grab a funnel - one used for canning is best since it has a wide mouth, jars, measuring spoons and cups.


 Into each jar put:
1 1/3 cups flour
3 TBSP sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt 

I make a bunch at a time. Like nine or so. No joke. It takes next to no time, yet saves an absolute ton of time in the morning when all you want to do is sit quietly and drink coffee and not make breakfast or pack lunches or get kids out of bed or hope your husband heard the second alarm. The mix helps. Really, it does. It doesn't do the laundry, but it helps.


You can add a nice chalkboard label or  metal rim tag.

On the reverse side of the label, list the directions.
Add: 1 egg, 1 1/4 cups milk, 3TBSP melted butter, 1 tsp vanilla.
Mix just enough to combine. Don't over mix. The batter will be lumpy. Let it sit and get happy for about 5 minutes. One jar of mix makes four large waffles or a bunch of pancakes.

    1. Hi Mary,
      We actually did give them as gifts for Christmas. Along with some homemade vanilla and preserves. All nicely tucked into a little basket with some other goodies. They were well received!

  5. I am going to try these with a bigger jar, that way you just add the wet ingredients to the jar and shake.
    Thanks for sharing, found on pinterest.
