  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • cup melted butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract


  • Beat the egg and milk together in a bowl with the melted butter.
  • Add the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into the bowl and whisk well until a smooth runny batter is formed.
  • Place your grilling pan onto a medium heat. Brush some butter over the whole surface of the grill. When the butter starts to sizzle, the grill is ready for the batter.
  • Spoon the waffle batter onto the grill, forming circles on the grill with the batter.
  • Turn the grill heat down to medium-low to achieve that crispy outside and fluffy inside.
  • Continue grilling until the edges and the bottom of the waffle appear crispy or slightly golden and then use a spatula to flip it and grill on the other side until the bottom is crispy.
  • Transfer the waffle to a plate and cover to keep warm. Repeat the steps until you have used up all of the batter.
  • Enjoy warm with assorted toppings of your choosing.
