Powered by Mom’s Oven Baked Waffles!

I made a batch of delicious oven baked waffles this weekend! I am so happy we made extras as now we can freeze them and pop them in the toaster when we’re on the run during the week. Better yet it was super easy to make these waffles and I did a gluten-free option which was yummy. It was so good my family had no idea they were gluten-free until I told them afterwards of course.

Now the home made waffles are easy to make but if you want to make this even easier you can use a pancake/waffle mix, there are even gluten-free ones out there. I like the Pamela’s gluten-free pancake mix which I see can also be used for waffles, we will try the mix the next round.

First how did I bake the waffles? Well I used a fabuloussilicone waffle mold! Mine is from a Canadian company called Epicure but you can get different ones on Amazon HERE which are only $24.99 for a set of 2!

Here’s what they look like

I love the silicone mold that I have (it’s not the one above) I can make six waffles at the same time and it’s easy and not messy at all.

Here’s the recipe you can use either regular flour, whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour or remember if you want to make it super easy use a pancake/waffle mix.



Oven Baked Waffles Recipe – Gluten Free Option Too!

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes


With this recipe, you can use either regular flour, whole wheat flour or gluten-free flour for a family-friendly meal any time of day!



  • 2 cups all purpose flour (or substitute as mentioned above)
  • 2 Tbsp sugar (if you want you can add 3 Tbsp I used 2)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp basking soda
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • vanilla extract if desired – I always use it and add to taste we LOVE vanilla
  • 1/4 cup of oil (I like coconut oil but you can use a vegetable oil)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. Combine dry ingredients in medium to large mixing bowl
  3. In another bowl mix eggs, milk, vanilla extract (if using) and oil
  4. Add the wet ingredients to dry and mixed until combined, no big lumps
  5. Brush coconut oil (or oil of choice) or use cooking spray on silicone mold
  6. Pour waffle batter into mold filling no more than 3/4 (for gluten free for regular flour maybe half way) make sure to fill all corners.
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes until the waffles look golden brown, if the top is golden brown the bottom should be too.
  8. Take out of oven flip mold (use oven mitts as silicone can be hot) and the waffles will fall out. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Any tips or thoughts on if this could be done with a cast iron waffle iron, the kind that you can use on the stove(non glass top stove anyways)?

  2. Just ordered 2 pans from WISH should be here by next week. Have had these walls and they are great. My sister would make about 16 and freeze them. We toasted are micro waved them either way they are yummy. Thanks for the share.

  3. I found your blog after purchased cheap silicon mould from our local grocery shop. Finally made it today and my girls love it (I haven’t tasted myself, being a diabetic I had to follow my eating plan :)). I used up all the batter to fill up 6 cavities of the mould but they turned out too thick (still looked good though). I wonder if I could leave the batter waiting until I can bake the second batch.

  4. Wow– I had no idea there was a way to do waffles in the oven– looks easy enough for me– Need to find one of these pans first. In fact we had waffles for dinner tonight– its always a hit any time of the day. I’ll be checking in to getting one of these pans. Thanks for your creative ideas.

  5. Hi from Slovenia – Europe πŸ™‚ so the other side – had to share – bought silicone moulds two days ago in one of our shops and HORROR – how to bake waffles in it? Luckily my best friend Uncle Google found you πŸ™‚ Prepared the waffles for dinner tonight – the last time we ate waffles was at Lake Arrowhead in California on vacation last summer – and my men (3 of them) were schocked HOW DID YOU DO THESE? πŸ˜€ Put a bowl of fresh strawberries, a big jar of Nutella and whiped cream on the table and it was PERFECT! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  32. I’ve never heard of this way of cooking waffles, but love the idea that 6 waffles will be ready all at the same time. The standing and waiting and watching for each waffle to finish cooking in a waffle maker is what keeps me from making them more often. Do they ever stick in the mold?
