How to Make Homemade Waffles using Self Rising Flour
Prep time for these waffles is less than five minutes and cook time depends on your particular waffles maker, but is right about ten minutes for me.
For equipment, you will need a waffle maker and a medium mixing bowl. That’s it!
This yields waffles for a family of four. But you can simply double or halve the recipe without any other changes.
The great thing about these waffles is that you don’t need baking powder. Most homemade waffle recipes use baking powder to get that light and fluffy texture.
But by using self rising flour, you get that great texture with fewer ingredients. I find the texture to be equal to my waffles made with baking powder, so when you have self rising flour on hand, this is the recipe to make!

For best results, set your milk out for about five minutes before mixing your ingredients. While not required, it will produce lighter waffles with a nice crisp outside.
- Self Rising Flour
- Granulated Sugar
- Unsalted Butter
- Vanilla Extract
Note: If you only have salted butter, that’s fine, just omit the added salt.
