These waffles are crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and the perfect thing to start your day.

Quick Facts

Makes 3 waffles
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Ready In: 15 minutes


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup flour
  • 7/8 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • salt


  • Small bowl
  • Whisk
  • Waffle iron
  1. Whisk egg until frothy. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk softly until just combined. Batter will be thin, almost more of a pancake batter than a waffle batter – this is expected.
  2. Cook on a preheated waffle iron until desired color is reached.
  3. Enjoy!
