Homemade Waffle Mix

Breakfast magic begins with homemade waffle mix. For a more whole-grain version, substitute up to half the all-purpose flour with any combination of whole-wheat pastry flour, rye, or buckwheat flour.

8 cups

Waffle Mix
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
  3. Transfer to a large jar or container and store in a cool, dry place.
Whole Wheat Waffles
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°F. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks with a mixer fit with the wire whip. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl or large liquid measure, whisk together the egg yolks, melted butter, buttermilk, milk and vanilla.
  3. Scoop 2 cups of mix into a medium bowl. Stir the wet mixture into the dry mix until combined, then stir in a big spoonful of the beaten egg white. Using a silicone spatula, gently fold the remaining egg whites into the batter.
  4. Grease your waffle iron and scoop 1/2 cup of batter into the hot iron. Cook per the machine's instructions, use tongs to remove the waffles from the iron, and keep the waffles in a 200°F oven until serving.
