Waffle Recipe for One

This is the perfect waffle recipe for one! It makes just enough batter to fill a waffle iron one time, and will keep you full and satisfied all the way until lunch!


My kids are not much for a hot cooked breakfast and would love to eat cereal every morning for the rest of their lives. I on the other hand love a good hot breakfast. More often than not when the kids are off to school for the day I'll spend 10-15 minutes in the kitchen making my breakfast before I start working for the day. This waffle recipe for one is perfect for those types of mornings, and it just makes the day a little bit better.

Waffle Recipe for One:

There are a lot of reasons why you would want to make a waffle recipe for one. Maybe you're like me and find yourself eating breakfast by yourself after the kids are at school, maybe you live on your own, or maybe you just straight up want a waffle and you don't need any reason other than that. This waffle recipe is perfect because it's enough batter to fill the waffle iron one time, and makes one perfect sized waffle.

Oster Waffle Iron:

I think waffle irons are things that people tend to get pretty passionate about. We had a Bella flip one when Derek and I first got married, and I personally don't understand what the point of the flip is other than making a massive mess in the kitchen almost every time. 

We bought this Oster waffle iron a couple years ago to replace our old one we had, and I've had no complaints. It cooks the waffles evenly every time, is easy to clean, and does the job at hand: making waffles. I personally think waffles are more about the batter than the iron.

Cornstarch in Waffles: 

Cornstarch is such an underrated ingredient in the kitchen. I had done a sponsored blog post with Argo Cornstarch on my old blog several years ago, and that expiripence really taught me how much texture cornstarch can bring to a recipe. When you put cornstarch in your waffles it gives them a great balance of having a slight crispiness on the outside, while being soft and fluffy on the inside. It's the perfect balance and I'm here for all of it.

This is the perfect waffle recipe for one! It makes just enough batter to fill a waffle iron one time, and will keep you full and satisfied all the way until lunch!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1/2 Egg
  • 2 tbsp Butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat your waffle iron. I always go for the highest heat setting and I've never had a waffle burn. 
  2. In a medium size bowl whisk together you flour, cornstarch, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt your butter. 
  4. In a small bowl mix together you egg, milk, butter, and vanilla. 
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. 
  6. Pour your batter into your waffle iron, close, and cook according to your waffle iron's instructions. I let mine cook all the way until the "ready" light on my waffle iron lit.
  7. You may have a small amount of batter leftover depending on the size of your waffle iron. If this happens just make one smaller waffle and then store in a baggie in the freezer until you're ready to eat it!
