We’ve tried lots of waffle recipes from the mass of cookbooks that we have but they are all so complicated. Split eggs, use about 100 bowls (or so it would seem).
But to be honest, we’re more of a throw it all in a bowl, use a jug to pour onto the waffle iron, let it go and then watch the kids eat them all up and ask for more.
And this recipe really works like that!
The speed that they disappear into the kids stomaches.
We have to presume that they are good we don’t honestly know as by the time we’ve finished making them they have all disappeared.
The waffle batter mix makes 8 good sized waffles in my Waffle Iron but they fly off so quickly that it’s hard to tell.
Check out these other Fun Waffle Recipes for Kids which I’m sure your family will enjoy as much as ours.
Although you can keep a plate heated and pile them up as soon as they start cooking the kids descend on the kitchen drawn by the smell and start to eat them up.
We’re not flashy with toppings on a sleepover – there is maple syrup, chocolate sauce, and Nutella that’s it. It seems to cover everything that the kids enjoy.

How to Clean Your Waffle Maker
At some point, you will need to clean your waffle maker, whether it’s the kids who have been using it and left a mess or there has been a spill it’s time to give it a good going over.
So here are some instructions for cleaning it:
- Unplug the waffle maker and allow it to cool down completely before cleaning.
- Remove any excess batter or crumbs from the waffle maker using a soft-bristled brush or a dry cloth. Make sure to remove any bits that may have stuck to the surface of the waffle plates.
- If the waffle maker has removable plates, remove them and wash them in warm soapy water. Rinse them thoroughly and allow them to air dry completely before placing them back in the waffle maker.
- If the plates are not removable, use a damp cloth to wipe down the surface of the waffle maker. Make sure to get into all the crevices and corners.
- If there are any stubborn stains or burnt-on residue, make a paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the affected areas. Let the paste sit for a few minutes, then scrub it off using a soft-bristled brush.
- Wipe the waffle maker down with a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue or baking soda paste.
- Once you have finished cleaning the waffle maker, allow it to air dry completely before storing it away.
Remember to never submerge the waffle maker in water or use abrasive cleaning tools or chemicals as they can damage the non-stick coating of the plates.
