Waffles are such a nice option for breakfast at the weekend. I actually prefer savoury waffles (recipe in our FREE cookbook), but this is a recipe for sweet ones.

Each waffle iron is very different, and like making pancakes the first ones are always a little weird.

Tip! Don’t fill up the surface of your waffle iron with the batter, I normally scoop up to 1/2 of the surface. Otherwise, it will leak out from the sides of the waffle iron, when overfull.


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp yoghurt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 6 tbsp melted unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice


  • Preheat waffle iron.
  • Gently coat with nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • Whisk the yoghurt, lemon juice into the milk until well combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients (butter, milk/yoghurt/lemon juice mixture, vanilla) into the dry ingredients
  • Whisk until blended
  • The batter should be lumpy
  • Scoop the batter into the preheated waffle iron and cook until the waffles are golden brown and crisp.
