Cake Batter Waffles

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 15 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Toppings: whipped cream, chocolate sauce, sprinkles


  1. Plug in your waffle iron and let it heat on medium as you prepare the batter.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, at least 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well.
  4. Add the vanilla and almond extract.
  5. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add the flour mixture to the batter in three batches, alternating with the milk, until fully incorporated. Add sprinkles to the batter at this point, if you want.
  6. Scoop 1/2 cup (this amount will depend on the size of your waffle iron) of batter into the waffle iron, and close the lid. Let cook for about 3 minutes, then carefully remove the waffle. Upon removal, the waffle will be very soft and fragile; however, it will crisp up after removal.
  7. Serve with toppings as desired: whipped cream, chocolate sauce, fruit, sprinkles, etc.
