Best Fresh Milled Flour Waffle Recipe!

Looking for the best waffle recipe with fresh milled flour? I think we’ve found it!

Waffles are a major staple in our roost. I’ve been making them and freezing them for years.

When I started using fresh milled flour, I searched around for waffle recipes for quite some time.

Most of them used soft wheat or spelt. And while I LOVE spelt in many things, it turns out they don’t make my favorite waffle.

My family also doesn’t love soft wheat in a lot of recipes. SO, I’ve learned through trial and error that hard white wheat can be used in a lot of non-yeast breads (shocking, I know).

In fact, we tend to prefer hard white in a lot of baking recipes beyond the basic sandwich loaf.

I love that this recipe is simple, and with all the moisture, it doesn’t even need extra resting time to soak up the grains (in my experience).

And the best part: They freeze really well. I have made so many waffle recipes that really dried out after being frozen and re-heated (or toasted). OR, they were really dense.

I especially wanted these waffles to be light, fluffy and also crispy straight from freezer to toaster. That seems to be a prerequisite for waffles, right? 😉

Waffle making tips

You’ll start by milling enough hard white wheat to equal 2 cups of flour. (I usually mill about 1 and 2/3 cups of berries.)

Then, add the 2 cups of flour to a mixing bowl, and combine the dry ingredients: baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the eggs, olive oil, and vanilla.

Stir batter with a wooden spoon, until well incorporated.

The hardest part with any homemade waffles is usually figuring out how much batter to add to the waffle iron.

I have a Cuisinart waffle maker which we really enjoy. When our old waffle maker broke, I wanted one that made deep waffles- but not too deep.

And I wanted them to be large enough that I didn’t have to make 88 waffles to feed my family (you know, like with those trendy little Dash waffle makers!).

Scooping waffle batter into waffle maker.

For our waffle maker, I use a cookie scoop that holds about 2 tablespoons, and I place 3 scoops around the center of the waffle maker. Then I spread it a little with the wooden spoon, but not too close to the edges.

I like to top my waffles with walnuts (although fruit would’ve made a prettier picture).

Sometimes we add frozen blueberries (try the wild blueberries if you’re an Azure Standard customer– delicious!). Or enjoy these with your favorite toppings!

And be sure to freeze a bunch for later. You’ll be glad you did!
