Oma's Easy Waffle Recipe ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

❤️ Perfect for your German breakfast buffet: Waffles with ham, just like Oma made...

Need an easy waffle recipe? Here's one that's healthy as well. With the added whole wheat flour, these have a nutty taste yet are light and airy.

Anyone else say 'whipped cream and berries?' These are among my best breakfast recipes and also among my best German desserts.

Why? Because they are so good and so easy to serve either savory or sweet!

Below, you'll find another delicious way to serve these German waffeles. 

With a dollop of whipped cream and Rote Grütze ... so traditionally, wonderfully German!

Serving Suggestions ... with Cream and Rote Grütze

German Waffles with cream and rote gruetze
  • Whip 1 cup of whipping cream together with 2 Tbsp powdered sugar. Serve dollops on top of waffles.
  • Rote Grütze or a fruit sauce/preserves over the top of the waffles.
  • Maple Syrup always is great!
  • Fresh fruit on the side makes this extra healthy.

Oma's Tip:

Just in case you have leftovers ...

which I doubt ...

these waffles can be frozen and reheated in the oven!

Oma's Easy Waffle Recipe ❤️

Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs 
  • ¼ cup butter, melted and cooled 
  • 2 cups buttermilk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour 
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour 
  • ½ tsp baking soda 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 2 tbsp sugar 
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Preheat waffle iron, brushing inside well with oil (or according to manufacturer’s directions) 
  • Preheat oven to 200° F to keep cooked waffles warm until needed. 
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, melted butter, buttermilk, and vanilla. 
  • In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients together and then add to the egg mixture and stir until well mixed. Let sit for about 5 minutes. 
  • Pour a little of the batter into the waffle iron (check the manufacturer’s directions as to how much) and cook until waffle is golden brown on both sides and easy to remove. 
  • Serve immediately or put into oven to keep warm.
  • This recipe makes about 6  8" waffles.

Hints:

  • Serve with maple syrup, sausages, bacon, or your favorite pancake toppings.
  • Try adding chopped nuts, chocolate chips, or blueberries to the batter! 
  • Waffles taste best when eaten almost immediately, having cooled off just a bit.
