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.Print
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)
- Preheat oven to 425 F
- Combine dry ingredients in medium to large mixing bowl
- In another bowl mix eggs, milk, vanilla extract (if using) and oil
- Add the wet ingredients to dry and mixed until combined, no big lumps
- Brush coconut oil (or oil of choice) or use cooking spray on silicone mold
- 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.
- Bake 12-15 minutes until the waffles look golden brown, if the top is golden brown the bottom should be too.
- Take out of oven flip mold (use oven mitts as silicone can be hot) and the waffles will fall out. Serve and enjoy!
Note: One side of the waffles as you can see in the picture above will not have the holes this is the side facing up in the mold but the bottom side will look like regular waffles and it all tastes good 🙂
Can you freeze the oven baked waffles?
Yes! These are great for freezing, they’re like your own Eggo Waffle but better and with better ingredients because you know what went in to them. My daughter likes to put them in a toaster or toaster oven. They also warm up nicely in an AirFryer Oven. A bit crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, a tasty waffle indeed. She just tops hers with maple syrup but I love mine with fresh fruit and sometimes some whip cream.
So make a big batch and freeze some for later to be taken out whenever you need them or are just craving a waffle.
Options: you can add fruit to the batter or like we did below add chocolate chips kids and adults like love them! 🙂
