How to save time making Waffles

Do you have a hard time getting breakfast ready on a busy morning?

One of the hardest things every morning is making myself and my kids breakfast.  When you have to be to work by a certain time and you don’t want to get up in the morning, breakfast time can be a challenge.  I’ve figured out a way to at least get one child easily fed in the morning.  This is a great time saving idea.

waffle recipe

Make ahead waffles

2 eggs

1 2/3 cup milk

1/2 cup melted butter

2 1/2 cups flour

2 tbsp. sugar

4 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt


Melt butter in small bowl.   I then let it sit for awhile to cool down before mixing in with other ingredients.

In a large bowl beat eggs.  Mix in milk.  Add cooled melted butter. (there will be lumps from the butter)

In a separate medium bowl – mix flower, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture.  Stirring and smashing flour clumps.





I then put into heated waffle iron, using about 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of the mixture.  I make my waffles a little on the smaller side, to fit the appetite of my kids.

Mix makes about 10-12 waffles, depending on how big you make them.


I usually make these on a Saturday or Sunday morning and the kids eat one right away and then I cool the rest to wrap up for freezing.

I just put a piece of freezer paper or wax paper between each waffle and put the stack into a gallon size freezer bag.  You could also put a few just into the refrigerator for the next few days and save on using too much paper.

How does this save you time?

Imagine a busy morning and you are in a rush to make breakfast.  Just open up the freezer, take out a waffle, pop into the oven or toaster oven for about 4 minutes at 400 degrees and done!  I taught my kids to use the toaster oven and all I end up doing is cutting up the waffle into bite size pieces for them, they do the rest…talk about a time saver!
