How To Make Copycat Waffle House Waffles

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Total: 25 mins


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ cup warm milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 oz active dry yeast
  • tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • cooking spray

To Serve:

  • 2 tbsp pancake syrup, or honey, or maple syrup, per serving
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, per serving


  1. Combine the warm milk, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside in a warm area, best if covered with a clean moist towel. Allow the yeast to foam up for roughly 30 minutes.

  2. In a smaller bowl, sift together the flour and salt. Set aside.

  3. Once the yeast foams up, add the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Whisk until evenly incorporated.

  4. Fold the sifted flour mixture into the wet mixture until evenly incorporated. It will now form a soft dough.

  5. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside in a warm area. Allow the dough to rise and double in size for at least 1 hour.

  6. While waiting, preheat the waffle iron over medium heat and grease with cooking spray

  7. Portion roughly ¾ cup of the wet dough into the waffle iron. Allow to cook on both sides for roughly for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the manufacturer’s directions.

  8. To assemble, stack roughly 2 to 3 pieces of waffles. Either scoop or pipe the butter atop, then drizzle with pancake syrup. Serve and enjoy!

Commonly Asked Questions

Is There Any Difference Between Waffles and Pancakes?

It may seem like waffles and pancakes are similar but cooked in a different way, but there are more differences than that. One of the differences is that pancakes are fluffier and lighter compared to waffles. Of course, the most obvious is their shapes: the pancakes are round while the waffle depends on the shape of the waffle iron used.




Waffles are meant to be eaten at any time of the day. Do you want it for breakfast? No problem. Want it for lunch with some chicken and bacon? You got it. It all depends on you.
