  • 1 egg
  • 225g self-rising flour
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar (optional)
  • 250ml milk
  • 50g butter, melted and cooled
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tbsp sunflower or vegetable oil
  • Maple syrup and icing sugar, to serve (optional)


  1. Begin by cracking the egg into a large bowl. For extra fluffy waffles, separate the yolk and set aside the white for later use.

  2. Add the self-raising flour and a generous pinch of salt to the bowl. If you prefer a sweeter waffle, mix in the golden caster sugar.

  3. Gradually whisk in the milk until the mixture is smooth and lump-free.

  4. Next, stir in the melted and cooled butter, ensuring it is thoroughly combined.

  5. For added flavor, whisk in the vanilla extract if desired.

  6. If you opted to separate the egg, whisk the egg white to soft peaks and gently fold it into the batter.

  7. Alternatively, you can blend all the ingredients together using a blender for a quick and easy batter.

  8. The batter can be made 1-2 hours ahead and chilled in the refrigerator.

  9. Preheat your waffle maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  10. Lightly brush the waffle maker with a bit of oil to prevent sticking.

  11. Pour in enough batter to cover the surface evenly, ensuring you don’t overfill.

  12. Cook the waffles following the manufacturer’s guidelines, typically for 5-6 minutes, until they are golden brown and crisp.

  13. Serve the waffles immediately for the best texture or keep them warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining batter.

  14. Top your waffles with a drizzle of maple syrup or a sprinkle of icing sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

Indulge in these classic waffles that are perfect for any morning. The light, fluffy texture combined with the golden, crispy exterior makes for an irresistible breakfast treat. Customize them with your favorite toppings, from fresh fruits to whipped cream, and transform your breakfast into a delightful experience.
