Making your own waffle mix for breakfast is easier and cheaper than on the store shelves. You only need a few ingredients.

Homemade Waffle Mix

Using store-bought waffle box mix is convenient when you need a fast breakfast on the table, but you probably overlook how easy it is to make it at home with ingredients you already have in your pantry.

I firmly believe that making anything from scratch will always be better for my family and me.  I know what ingredients are going into my food, and I always try to use quality ingredients that are not super-processed.

All you need to make a homemade waffle mix is all-purpose flour, baking powder or baking soda, salt, and sugar. And although pancakes and waffles have a similar recipe waffle mix should be thinner than any pancake batter will produce.

Key Ingredients

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make the perfect waffles.

All-purpose flour

You don’t need anything fancy, just good old-fashioned all-purpose flour. You can use an alternative based on your diet restrictions, but the basics are all you need.

Salt

Just a tiny amount of kosher salt is all you need to bring out the flavors in other ingredients.

Baking powder

Though some recipes call for baking soda, I prefer to use baking powder in my waffle recipe as it yields tastier results.

Sugar

All you need is a couple of tablespoons to achieve that optimal sweetness.
