Grandma’s Recipe Box – Country Home Waffles
This is a recipe that carries a lot of memories of my Grandma Arlene. After I received my Grandmother’s recipe boxes, this was the sole recipe I searched for. After finding this recipe, I was amazed at how old it was. As you can see it was the “Recipe of the Month” for January 1948.
And when you flip it over you realize it was a postcard. It cost 1 cent to mail this back in 1948.
Whenever we would stop out to visit Grandma on the farm, she would often ask if we would like to stay for supper. Grandma loved when we stayed for supper! I remember taking my kids out and she would always say, “I don’t have much but I can make waffles, and I think I even have sausage links in the freezer.” When I told my kids that, they thought it was the best thing ever! Truth be told, I loved it too. Being able to spend that time with her. Then if we finished all our supper, she would make us each a vanilla ice cream cone.
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups milk
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 4 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 tsp sugar
- Warm the milk to room temperature or slightly warmer in the microwave. Takes about 45 seconds in mine.
- Mix the eggs, melted butter, and milk together in a large bowl.
- Shift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
- Add dry ingredients into the liquid ingredients, and mix well by hand. You can use a beater a rubber spatula. You do no want the batter to be lumpy.

- I have a small round waffle maker and I put in about ¼ cup of batter.
