Cooking With Jess: Mini Waffles for Every Occasion


We all know that I generally get excited over food, it’s just a given. However, seriously you guys, I am THRILLED to start adding my favorite recipes to my blog so that you guys can enjoy the same things that make my tummy turn somersaults. I think it's also a given that I love brunch more than anything in the world lately, so why not kick things off with a mini waffle recipe that's perfect for many different occasions. 

They're perfect for breakfast in bed, bridal or birthday brunches, on the go breakfast for you and the kiddos and whatever else you can think of. You can vary the size as you wish, I found a medium size to be perfect. You don’t want to make them square, else they lose the fun look that they have. 5-10 seconds in the microwave reheats these up perfectly and you’d never know they weren’t fresh! Make sure you try them and let me know what you think!



  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups flour

For the topping:

  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • (Optional) Fresh Strawberries, Blackberries or Blueberries 
  • (Optional) Whip Cream  


In a large bowl mix the sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. 

Add the eggs, milk and melted butter. Beat well.

Stir in the 3 cups of flour, mixing well until it's thoroughly combined. You are going to have thick, sticky batter, maybe a little thicker thab

Preheat your waffle griddle. 


Place the batter in the middle of each waffle part (some waffle makers will have 2 or 4). You can do large or small waffles. 

Cook for 3 minutes until golden brown. 

Remove your waffles from the waffle iron and place on a cooling rack. 

Serve accordingly


Topping Options:

Combine the white sugar and cinnamon for the topping. 

Dip or lightly brush the top of your waffle in butter, shake off, then dip into the cinnamon sugar mixture. 

Set back onto the rack and continue with the other waffles until finished.

Fresh berries are also a nice topping alternative

A little side note: 5-10 seconds in the microwave reheats these up perfectly and you'd never know they weren't fresh! 

Store (as if you are going to have any left) in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Happy Brunchin!
