Did you know you can make your own Buttermilk Waffle Mix? This mix is so simple to make, and it requires no eggs. Plus, you can use it for pancakes, waffles, and even pancake muffins!
To make these delicious waffles, you’ll just add water and oil to the ready made waffle mix to make the batter. These waffles cook up in just a couple minutes for a super quick breakfast!
I’ve been making this mix since the pandemic, and my kids LOVE it! This post contains affiliate links.
I have a kid with an egg allergy, so I have to be extra careful when buying any kind of pancake or waffle mixes. There is only one brand I could find in any of the grocery stores with no eggs in the ingredients.
It was often hard to find, and sometimes you could only find the small box that would pretty much feed my family of 6 in one sitting.
So, one day I ran out and decided to make my own and never looked back. This is the exact same mix I use for making my own pancakes, too. I just add oil to the batter for making waffles.
What do you need to make your own Buttermilk Waffle Mix?
What I love about this mix is that all you need to do is add water. You don’t need any eggs at all, and they come out delicious!
We love the flavor of buttermilk waffles and pancakes, so I use powdered buttermilk in this mix. But, you can substitute and use regular powdered milk for this recipe as well.
You’ll also need flour, white sugar, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
How do you make your own Buttermilk Waffle Mix? ?
I usually make a double batch at a time because this mix goes fast with 6 in your family. My kids love waffles, so this is an easy breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Combine all the ingredients and blend with a whisk. That’s all there is to it!
I recently found an awesome glass jar for holding my mix. But, prior to that, I just transferred it to gallon-size ziplock bag and label the bag with how to mix it up for both waffles and pancakes.
I just recently got a wide mouth 1/2 gallon size mason jar to use instead of the ziplock bag since it’s on the counter so much from use!
How do you cook waffles with the make your own Buttermilk Waffle Mix?
To make a batch of waffles, you’ll need:
1 Cup of Waffle Mix + 3/4 Cup of Water + 1/4 cup oil
This amount will make about 2 1/2 of the round size waffles that have 4 triangles.
I usually double this amount and make 5-6 waffles for one batch, since there’s six of us.
Use a nonstick oil spray before making each waffle, so they’re easy to remove.
While the waffle iron is warming up, mix up your batter.
Can I add mix ins to these waffles?
Absolutely! We add chocolate chips or fruit to the batter all the time. Here are a few other ideas to add to the batter:
- Chocolate Chip Waffles: 1 cup of chocolate chips
- Blueberry Waffles: 1/2 cup of blueberries (1 cup if you want extra!)
- Peanut Butter Waffles: 1/3 cup of peanut butter
- Strawberry Waffles: 1/2 cup diced strawberries (want chocolate? add 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, too)
- Apple Cinnamon Waffles: 1/3 cup apple sauce and 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Bananarama Waffles: Add sliced bananas on freshly cooked waffles as well as a slather of Nutella!
Can I add milk instead of water to the homemade buttermilk waffle mix?
Yes you can! These waffles are just as delicious with milk, too!
How do I store extra waffles?
I put them in a ziplock bag in the fridge and just reheat a few on a plate for 20-30 seconds. They taste great to my kids!
You can even freeze the waffles in ziplock freezer bags and reheat in the microwave. Depending on your microwave, they might reheat in 30-45 seconds on a plate.
