• 80 grams (2.8 ounces) butter (82.5%)
  • 200 grams (7.1 ounces) ricotta
  • 2 large eggs
  • 15 grams (0.53 ounces or 1 tablespoon) vanilla sugar
  • 25 grams (0.88 ounces or 2 tablespoons) sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 140 grams (4.9 ounces or 1 cup + 2 tablespoons) flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • Waffle Iron

    An essential for creating perfectly shaped waffles. Opt for a non-stick waffle iron for easy cleanup and even cooking.

  • Mixing Bowls

    You'll need at least two—a large one for the wet ingredients and a medium one for the dry ingredients. Stainless steel bowls are durable and maintain temperature well.

  • Whisk

    Great for evenly combining ingredients and creating a smooth batter. A balloon whisk works best for incorporating air into your mixture.

  • Rubber Spatula

    Perfect for scraping down the sides of your mixing bowl to ensure no ingredient is left behind.

  • Sifter

    Helps to remove lumps from the flour and ensures even mixing. A hand-crank sifter works quickly and efficiently.


Step 1

1. Chop the cold butter into small cubes, then whip it with sugar and ricotta until smooth. Make sure the butter is cold to achieve the right texture.

Step 2

2. Add the eggs one at a time, whipping until each is fully incorporated. Ensure the mixture is smooth before adding the next egg for a better batter consistency.

Step 3

3. In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt, and baking powder together. Then whisk to combine evenly. Sifting helps to get a light and fluffy waffle batter.

Step 4

4. Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, folding gently until a thick dough forms. Avoid over-mixing to keep the waffles tender.

Step 5

5. Preheat the waffle iron and lightly grease it with butter or oil before cooking the first batch. Subsequent greasing is unnecessary due to the butter content in the dough.

Step 6

6. Drop a tablespoon of dough into the waffle iron and cook until golden brown. Cooking time may vary by waffle iron; typically it takes about 3-5 minutes.

Step 7

7. Refrigerate the finished waffles in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat in a toaster or oven to regain crispiness.

Bon Appetit!


Picture this: a sunny weekend morning, the warm smell of freshly cooked waffles filling your kitchen. Gather your loved ones and serve these golden brown waffles with a variety of toppings. Fresh berries, whipped cream, and a drizzle of honey create a deliciously classic combo. For a more indulgent twist, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of chocolate shavings—perfect for a special brunch treat. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, try topping your waffles with sautéed apples and a sprinkle of cinnamon, or go savory with a side of crispy bacon and a dollop of cream cheese. Pair these waffles with a hot cup of coffee, a glass of orange juice, or even a breakfast mimosa to elevate your dining experience. These versatile waffles are a canvas for your culinary creativity!


Gluten-Free Variation: Swap out the regular flour for a gluten-free flour blend. Ensure that your baking powder is also gluten-free. The texture may be slightly different, but these waffles will still be fluffy and delicious.

Vegan Variation: Replace the butter with coconut oil or a plant-based butter substitute. Use a flaxseed or chia seed egg replacer in place of the eggs (1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed or chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water per egg). Substitute the ricotta with a vegan ricotta or a tofu-based ricotta alternative. Use non-dairy milk if needed to adjust the batter's consistency.


  • Why are my waffles sticking to the waffle iron?

    Ensure that you preheat the waffle iron properly and lightly grease it before the first batch. The butter in the dough also helps prevent sticking in subsequent batches.

  • Can I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour?

    Yes, you can substitute whole wheat flour but it might make the waffles denser. You may need to add a little more liquid to maintain the desired batter consistency.

  • How do I make my waffles extra crispy?

    For extra crispy waffles, you can cook them a bit longer in the waffle iron. Also, placing freshly cooked waffles on a wire rack helps them retain crispness without getting soggy.

  • Is it okay to prepare the batter in advance?

    It's best to cook the batter soon after mixing, but you can refrigerate it for a few hours. Just give it a quick stir before using if it’s been sitting for a while.

  • Can I freeze these waffles for later use?

    Absolutely! Let the waffles cool completely, then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze initially. Once frozen, transfer them to an airtight container or freezer bag. Reheat them in a toaster or oven.

  • How can I prevent my waffles from becoming soggy?

    Avoid stacking hot waffles directly on top of each other as the steam will make them soggy. Instead, place them in a single layer on a wire rack.
