Homemade Waffle Mix

Pancakes & waffles are favorite breakfast options for most kids and sometimes, you just haven’t had enough coffee to measure out all the ingredients.

With this homemade waffle mix recipe, you’ll be able to say YES to waffles any day of the week, because you’ll be able to pull them off in a matter of minutes.

Grab a pre-measured bag, add milk, egg, butter, and put that waffle maker to work and make perfect golden waffles like these.

I’ve had this recipe for a homemade pancake mix on this website for many years and one question that kept coming up was… how do I do this for waffles?

How to Make Waffle Mix

If you want to know how to make waffle mix that keeps well in your pantry, this recipe is it. I like to use zip bags (and reuse them for future batches) because they take up less space in my pantry.

Plus, with simple ingredients going into the mix, you can feel good about serving these to your family without wondering what ingredients were added to the box to keep them shelf-stable.

To make this mix simply combine all the dry ingredients and store in an air-tight container or zip bag. I try to store these in my pantry no longer than 6 months.

After you’ve combined the ingredients, make sure that you clearly label your bag with the serving size and the wet ingredients to add.

On the outside of my bags for both pancake and waffle mix, I write out the measurements for wet ingredients that will be added to the mix when I’m ready to cook. That saves me the step of having to pull out my recipe to get the pancakes or waffles on the griddle.

Making the Waffles

When you’re ready to turn your mix into waffles, you’ll add the wet ingredients, until it forms a smooth waffle batter.

Use a ladle to pour batter evenly onto your waffle iron, close the iron and cook until waffles are golden brown. Repeat the process until all the waffles are ready for breakfast.
