  • Waffle iron


  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 2 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • pinch nutmeg


  • Combine milk and vinegar and set aside for 2-3 minutes.
  • Whisk egg in a large bowl until the yolk and white are combined and no streaks remain.
  • Add the dry ingredients and milk mixture to the bowl and whisk until there are no lumps and is smooth.
  • Add waffle batter to heated waffle iron and bake per manufacturer's directions.



You can substitute 1 ½ cups of buttermilk for the milk and vinegar.  If you have neither vinegar nor buttermilk, you can still make these waffles - simply use milk.
After the waffles have cooled, you can cover them in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for a few days.  You can also wrap them in plastic wrap and place in a freezer zip-top bag and freeze them for a month or two.  When you get ready to eat, pop them in your toaster.
