Nordicware Waffle Iron and a Homemade Waffle Recipe!

I have a confession to make:  I have never made a homemade waffle until now! I have used a premade mix once or twice in the waffle iron I got 15 years ago for my wedding but was never happy with the results and it has been about 10 years since my last attempt! I make a lot of things from scratch but up until now, waffles weren’t in my repertoire! I recently got a chance to review a waffle iron from Nordicware and am THRILLED to announce that the waffles came out amazing! If you have never heard of Nordicware, here is some information about them from their website:

My Opinion:  Absolutely LOVE this waffle iron! It is much lighter than I thought it would be but very sturdy. It is great that there are no cords to deal with and the compact design means I can stick it in my cabinet without any problem at all. Actually, it fits nicely right in my cutting board section of the cabinet.

It is very easy to use…just turn the burner on medium (I used 5 out of 10 on my stove) and heat the pan 3 minutes on each side. I did this while making the waffle batter. Then, pour the batter in and close the top and cook 1 minute on the first side and 2 minutes on the second. The waffle just lifts right out with a fork…no sticking, no spraying necessary and I just rinsed with water for a quick cleanup. The hinged lid will stay open by itself, allowing you to use both hands for the bowl and ladle for the batter. I used it with both a premade waffle mix and a homemade recipe and both batches came out great! My family is so happy to have homemade waffles…they have been asking for YEARS!

Here is the recipe I used for my homemade waffles. I got it from The Joy Of Cooking…an old edition I refer to frequently from my cookbook collection!

Easy Homemade Waffles
1 3/4 cups flour
1 TBSP baking powder
1 TBSP sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 stick butter (melted)
1 1/2 cups milk
optional additions:  1/2 cup nuts, raisins, shredded cheese, bacon, etc. I added 2 TBSP ground hemp seeds from Navitas Naturals and 2 TBSP ground flax seeds.
1. Place dry ingredients in a bowl and mix
2. In a separate bowl, place eggs and milk, wisk together until blended
3. Add melted butter and egg/milk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with a wire wisk just until blended (do not overmix)
4. Add appropriate amount of batter to a preheated waffle iron. Use manufacturer’s instructions.
4. Top with syrup or whipped cream and fruit or whatever your desired topping may be and enjoy!

  1. Is this the recipe that came with the waffle maker? I bought this several years ago and love it but lost my original recipe that came with it. I loved those waffles!
