Crispy Waffles


1¾ cups skim milk
¼ cup water
¼ cup canola oil
3 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour (Can use white whole wheat)
2¼ teaspoons (1 pkg.) active dry yeast OR 1 tablespoon baking powder


Remember to Wash Your Hands!

  1. Combine all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, yeast, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Stir to combine ingredients.
  2. Combine milk, water and oil; heat to 120-130°F either in the microwave or on the stovetop. Use a thermometer to verify the temperature.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry mixture; stir by hand or blend on low speed with your mixer.
  4. Add the eggs and beat 2-3 minutes on medium speed.
  5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the batter for several hours or overnight if using yeast; use right away if using baking powder.
  6. To make waffles: preheat waffle iron. Remove batter from refrigerator and stir it down. (Batter should have a bubbly surface.)
  7. Pour the batter onto the waffle iron and close the iron. Bake according to your waffle iron instructions. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings.

Note: Do not use rapid rise yeast in this recipe!
