  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 3/4 cups milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat the waffle iron.
  • In a mixing bowl add eggs and vanilla, beat on med-low for 2 minutes (wet ingredients).
  • To the wet ingredients add the room temperature melted butter, vegetable oil, and milk. Beat for an additional 2 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk the ingredients together to combine.
  • Keeping the mixer on low, gradually add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredient mixture (one cup at a time).
  • Allow the batter to sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Pour the batter into the waffle iron: 1 cup to 1 1/4 cups per waffle. If necessary, before adding the batter use a cooking spray to keep the waffles from sticking.
  • Turn the iron over. Set the timer to 3-4 minutes.


(Optional) Allow the waffles to cool slightly on a wire cooling rack to keep them as crispy as possible. Nobody likes soggy waffles. Serve with warm syrup or fruit.
