Allison Levitt is half of the husband-and-wife team responsible for the waffled brandade

When I asked for her favorite waffle recipe, this is what she shared.

She didn't call them "pantry waffles"; I did. Of all the waffle recipes I'm presenting, these are certainly the ones that can be whipped up without any thought ahead of time.

I include her brief prologue as well as her footnote because I think both will ring true for a lot of people:

This is the recipe my dad used when he made Sunday breakfast for us kids. Our mom was the cook in the family when it came to dinner, but on weekends our dad would often throw down with some awesome breakfasts. Still love this recipe.


2 whole eggs

3/4 cup whole milk

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt


1. Mix wet together.

2. Mix dry together. 

3. Add wet to dry.

4. Waffle.

I especially love that this recipe calls for pretty normal pantry ingredients. Sometimes that makes cooking at home so much more appealing, not having to run out for the item you don't have on hand. Especially if you're still on your first cup of coffee.
