Crispy Waffles – The Perfect Weekend Treat for Big & Little Kids Alike

It’s a Sunday morning, the sun is rising and the kitchen is calling your name. For once, the kids are surprisingly not fighting each other (when does that ever happen more than once) and there’s time and space to get back to something you love. As a family, we love nothing more than digging into a giant shared plate of waffles, or any delicious food for that matter.

These golden and crispy waffles can be cooked and then frozen for up to 3 months. They make the perfect addition to your kid’s lunchbox (or even your own) for that special surprise treat.


¾ cup plain flour

¼ cup corn flour

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp bicarbonate soda

½ cup Greek yoghurt

½ cup milk

6 tbsp melted butter

1/3 tsp vanilla (optional)

1 egg separated

1 tbsp sugar

Assortment of toppings – maple syrup, berries, lemon & sugar etc


  1. Combine the sifted flours, salt, baking powder and bicarbonate soda together in a bowl. Once combined, make a well in the centre.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the Greek yoghurt, milk, butter, vanilla and egg yolk together. After mixing, add these wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until combined and smooth. Set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg white in a cake mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually sprinkle in the sugar, and whisk until smooth and fluffy.
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter. Be careful to not overmix.
  5. Warm your waffle maker or iron, gently grease with additional melted butter, and cook for a few minutes until golden and crispy.
  6. Serve with all of your favourite toppings.
