Helpful hints

  • Make batter the day before use.
  • This recipe has not been tested with nondairy creamer or other milk substitutes.
  • For flavor variety use pure vanilla extract or orange extract in place of almond extract.
  • Top with fresh berries or a bit of powdered sugar if desired.
  • Most waffle mixes or frozen waffles contain over 400 mg sodium and over 180 mg phosphorus for a serving comparable to this recipe. Replacing baking powder with baker’s yeast makes a difference.

Great recipe! I use Rice Dream in place of the milk and it works out perfect! I also vanilla extract instead of almond extract. I also cut the salt in half. With these changes it reduces sodium, potassium and phosphorus so leaves room to enjoy a little more if you can have the calories.

What is the difference of baker's yeast, and self rise yeast? I have never heard of baker's yeast. Dietitian comment: It is the same as yeast you buy at the grocery store to make bread. Other types of yeast include brewer's yeast used in making beer and nutritional yeast used for added nutrition, often in vegetarian diets.

Oh, soooo good! Missed waffles. Thanks for the recipe. Have home grown frozen raspberries, so used the Blackberry Sauce recipe using raspberries. Topped it off with a dab of Cool Whip. What a treat........Egg on the side for protein.

I make these every two weeks for my husband. The day after making the batter, my husband makes the waffles and freezes them for the mornings. They reheat well in the toaster. Easy recipe and very good!

Thanks for this recipe. I haven't been good about what I put in my waffles. The almond extract should make this recipe a keeper.
