  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 cups 2% milk can be almond milk, whole milk, etc. if you'd prefer but I prefer 2% for this recipe
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the waffle maker.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients (flour, cornmeal, baking powder, brown sugar, and kosher salt) and mix well.
  3. In another medium mixing bowl, whisk the milk, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla (AKA the "wet ingredients").
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  5. There is no need to grease the waffle maker since there is already vegetable oil in the batter.
  6. Pour 3/4 cup - 1 cup (depending on the size of your waffle maker) into the center of the grid.
  7. Cook the waffle according to your waffle maker directions. Bake until golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes.
