How to make classic Bisquick Waffle Recipe at home. This classic waffle recipe is perfect for regular or Belgian waffles.
Bisquick Waffle Recipe
My amazing husband is not much of a cook. I feel bad typing this but it is true. He is great with the barbecue and loves watching British Baking Show with me but when it comes time to bake and spend time in the kitchen he does not always find a ton of joy.
Thankfully one thing my husband rocks at making is these Bisquick Waffles. He is an absolute Rockstar waffle maker. He even makes his own homemade Irish cream whipped cream or bourbon vanilla whipped cream to top the waffles with. I love weekend mornings when he makes breakfast!
We try to sit down together for breakfast at least once over the weekend. Taking time to just slowly start the day with a great meal, hot coffee and tea, and time together.
Over the past year of working non-stop from home together it has made me realize how important our slow breakfasts are. The time we get to just talk and not be stressed over what projects we are trying to complete and what needs to get done.
It is so easy to get wrapped up in our never-ending to-do lists that having a nice calm breakfast feels like a staycation at home.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make amazing Bisquick Waffles! Specific measurements and step by step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- Bisquick Baking Mix
- Vegetable Oil

Is pancake mix the same as waffle mix?
We use Bisquick Baking Mix which was created for both pancakes and waffles. If you were making pancake mix or waffle mix from scratch the recipe would not be the same.
The both share similar ingredients including flour, baking soda or baking powder, eggs, but their proportions and batter are different.
Non-stick cooking spray or oil - Help prevent the Bisquick Belgian waffle recipe from sticking to the waffle maker by spraying it with non stick spray or brushing it with oil.
Belgian Waffle Maker - We love making Belgian waffles. They are puffier and super filling. I also love that the whipped cream and toppings sink down into the divets making each bite decadent.
Regular Waffle Maker - A regular waffle maker is great for more condensed smaller waffles.
Mini Waffle Maker - We received a mini waffle maker as a gift and it is the cutest little thing. So fun to make tiny little stackable waffles.
Themed waffle makers - I was looking at fun themed waffle makers on Amazon this morning and I have to admit it is pretty amazing what you can find! From Mickey Waffle Makers to trucks and car waffles, to hearts, the Mandalorian, dinosaur waffles, Millennium Falcon waffles, or bubble waffles there are so many fun themed waffle makers.
How to make Bisquick Waffles
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post but here's a quick version.
Heat waffle iron while preparing the waffle batter.
Whisk together Bisquick baking mix, eggs, milk, and vegetable oil in a large bowl.
Pour the waffle batter into the center of hot waffle iron and cook until golden brown.
How to tell when your waffles are finished - Your waffle maker manufacturer's instructions will help set a base cooking time for the waffles but sometimes it isn't perfect.
If you find that your waffles are burning or turning out partially cooked here are our best tips. One the waffle maker beeps that it is done cooking give it a few extra seconds to make sure the waffles are fully cooked.
Preparation and Storage
Make Ahead – Waffles can be made ahead of time and stored in the freezer for up to a month. They may not have the crunchy bite that you get from fresh baked waffles.
Storage – Once leftover waffles have cooled completely, wrap them in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator.
Can you freeze Bisquick Waffles?
Yes! When we plan ahead we like to make a triple batch of waffles and freeze the leftovers. You can wrap individual waffles in plastic wrap or aluminum foil then place them in a freezer safe bag and freeze them for up to a month.
How to reheat - when you are ready to serve them you can heat them up in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes or pop them into your toaster oven.
Substitutions - Substitute buttermilk instead of whole milk or regular milk.
Additions - Add in ground nutmeg, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon for additional flavor. Add in club soda to uplift the batter.
Add in your favorite secret ingredient to create the best waffles everyone will love.
Vegetarian Option - This recipe is vegetarian
Vegan Option – Substitute the milk with almond milk, coconut milk, or other non-dairy milk alternatives. Substitute eggs with dairy free yogurt. You may need additional baking powder and vanilla to make them fluffy.
Gluten Free - Use Gluten-Free Bisquick Mix or other pancake mix.
Smaller Serving Size – The serving size can be changed on the recipe card below. You can also make additional waffles and freeze them.
Larger Group/More servings – This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a large family gathering. We suggest placing the finished waffles on a wire rack on a baking sheet in the oven at 200 degrees to keep them warm while making additional waffles.
If you are like me and transferred your Bisquick baking mix to a storage container and promptly recycled the box with the instructions I highly suggest printing this recipe and taping it to the side of the container or putting it in an easy to find place.
This recipe can easily be doubled and tripled if you are making waffles for a large group.
For a fun twist, you can add bacon slices in the middle of your waffles.
Blueberries also taste amazing when mixed into these waffles.
We add in a teaspoon to a tablespoon of vanilla extract when we make these waffles for even more flavor.
This Bisquick Waffle Recipe makes 4 nice sized Bisquick Belgian Waffles. If you are using a smaller waffle maker it should make around 12 waffles.
