Beer Batter Waffles

    35 min

    These waffles are light and delicious. The beer replaces yeast and the honey gives them a nice crunch. My family love them.

    Surprisingly good! The recipe was so interesting I had to try it. I used two cups all purpose flour so I added 1 Tb baking powder and 1 tsp salt to make it self rising. Otherwise I followed the directions exactly. I used miller light since it's the cheapest stuff we have on hand. They turned out nicely golden and lightly crisp, we loved it. Especially since our George Forman waffle grill has a hard time cooking waffles well. Very easy recipe and will try it again.  -  27 Feb 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    By far the best waffles I have ever made. Perfect crunch. These waffles have become our new Saturday morning tradition. I used sour cream instead of milk to make them extra crispy and it was great! This recipe is fool proof! This recipe works best with a high quality iron.  -  11 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    After making these several times, I recommend using Miller High Life beer. It is super bubbly so the waffles are very fluffy and the beer flavor completely disappears. I tried using a honey weiss, a heavy amber bock and a lite beer. Also, a very small amount of cinnamon and these are better than any waffles my family and I have ever had!  -  07 Mar 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
