Waffles with Self Rising Flour
Waffles with self-rising flour are one of my family’s favorite breakfasts. They are super easy to make and don’t require a lot of steps and a massive cleanup. Serving them with butter and warm syrup takes them to the next level! They are the perfect breakfast!
Ingredients You’ll Need
- self-rising flour– Self-rising flour helps reduce the number of ingredients in this recipe and makes the waffles fluffy!
- corn starch– Corn starch makes the waffles nice and crispy outside.
- sugar– Sugar adds a little sweetness to these waffles.
- eggs– Eggs bind the waffle batter together.
- milk and buttermilk– Along with the eggs, milk helps bind the batter together and adds moisture, so the waffles are not dry.
- melted butter– Butter adds a little extra salty flavor to the waffles.
Steps for making waffles with self-rising flour:
Step 1: Preheat, your waffle maker to 375. Then, whisk all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs, milk, buttermilk, butter, and vanilla in another bowl.
Step 2: Combine the dry and wet ingredients, and stir until slightly combined. Small lumps in the batter are ok; they will dissolve. A little bit of a lumpy batter will lead to fluffy waffles, while overmixing the batter will make them dense and chewy.
When you combine the wet and dry ingredients the butter will resolidify since it becomes cold making the batter very lumpy. Don’t worry that is completely normal and will not affect the taste or texture of the waffles. The butter will melt in the waffle iron.
Step 3: Spray the waffle iron with butter spray and pour in 1/2 cup of batter. Make sure to look up and follow your waffle iron’s cooking instructions.
I have the Cuisinart Maker Waffle Iron, Double, Stainless Steel, and have to set the knob to three and wait until the waffle maker beeps when finished cooking. Yours, however, may be a little different, so make sure to read and follow the instructions.
Step 4: Set them on a wire rack to cool when the waffles are finished cooking. Stacking them on top of each other will cause them to become soggy due to the steam. Serve as is, or add a pad of butter and warm maple syrup. Enjoy!
Can I Freeze the Waffle Batter?
Yes! Freezing the batter is perfect if you only want to make a couple of waffles! It can stay in the freezer for 1-2 months. However, note that the waffles with self-rising flour won’t be as fluffy because the leavening agents will not work as well frozen.
Can I Use Oil or butter Instead of Butter Spray?
Yes, you can use canola, vegetable oil, or butter. If you use butter, be sure not to turn the temperature up past 375 F so that it does not burn.
Can I make pancakes out of waffle batter?
No, you can not. While waffles and pancakes have the same ingredients, they are slightly different batters. Waffle batter is a little bit thicker and contains more sugar than pancakes. Here is a delicious homemade blueberry pancake recipe if you want to make pancakes.
Can I Make Waffles Ahead of Time?
Yes! Waffles are such an easy make-ahead breakfast. If you plan on freezing them, pull the waffles out of the waffle maker just before they are crispy on the outside. They should be just a tad soggy so that when you reheat them, they can crisp up perfectly!
What do I serve these waffles with?
You can serve them with anything you’d like. My family loves to eat them with bacon and scrambled eggs, but you can eat them with any side dish! Sausage, hashbrowns, and ham are some more great options!
What Do I Top Waffles With?
You can top them with any of your favorite fresh fruit. Perhaps some strawberries, blueberries, or bananas. You could also top them with a cinnamon powdered sugar mixture. Or even the more traditional pad of butter and warm syrup!
How to store waffles with self-rising flour
Waffles are super easy to store and reheat! Allow them to come to room temperature, then place them in an airtight container in the fridge for seven days or at room temperature for 2-3 days.
If you do not eat all of your waffles at this time, you can place them in a freezer-friendly container and put them in the freezer for up to 2 months.
To reheat the waffles, place them in the microwave for 30 seconds; if frozen, repeat. Then place them in the toaster until crisp on the outside again.

waffle Recipe with Self-Rising Flour:
Waffle Recipe with Self-Rising Flour
- 1 Cuisinart Maker Waffle Iron, Double, Stainless Steel
- 6 cup self-risng flour
- 1 tsp corn starch
- 6 tbsp sugar
- 4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 6 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3 tsp vanilla
- Turn on your waffle maker so that it starts to get hot.
- Mix all of your dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside for later.
- In a separate bowl beat the eggs, milk, melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla until combined.
- Combine all the ingredients and stir until just combined. It is ok if the batter is still a little lumpy; an overmixed smooth batter will lead to dense waffles.
- Spray your waffle maker with butter spray and pour in 1/2 cup of batter.
- Follow the cooking instructions on your waffle iron. I have the Cuisineart Double Waffle Maker and set it on 3 and cook until it beeps.
