CLEVELAND, Ohio — For country chef Lee Ann Miller, hearing her son say “Mom, this is the best waffle I’ve ever had in my life!” is the ultimate compliment.

She shared her recipe for homemade amish waffles on FOX 8 News in the Morning.

Homemade Amish Waffles


  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • 4 t. baking powder
  • 2 T. white sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1-1/2 c. milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 T. butter, melted
  • Cut-up fresh fruit
  • Fresh whipped cream
  • For topping drizzle: heat peanut butter and maple syrup


Mix first 4 ingredients together; then add egg yolks, milk and butter & vanilla. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold in to batter. Yields approximately 8 waffles.

Note from Lee Ann: We love to top our waffles with cut-up fresh fruit, real whipped cream & then garnish the plate with fresh garden mint. Also, making these with a banana split twist is fun, too!
