  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 ¼ cups club soda (a 10-ounce bottle)
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • Optional, for serving: butter, syrup, fresh berries, whipped cream


  • In a large bowl, whisk together Bisquick, egg, club soda and oil. Let the batter rest while you preheat the waffle iron.
  • Cook waffles in a lightly oiled waffle iron for 3-5 minutes each, or until cooked through and golden brown.


  • If you don't have Bisquick, this recipe will likely work with other all-purpose baking mixes. I have tested it with good results using the Krusteaz mix, but I haven't tried any other brands. Let me know if you give the waffles a shot with a homemade Bisquick mix!
  • Use seltzer water instead of club soda. While they're not technically the same thing, the two beverages will work interchangeably in this recipe.
  • Add cinnamon, nutmeg, or other warm spices to the batter.
  • For slightly sweeter waffles, add a little bit of sugar to the batter.
  • Waffles without a Waffle Iron: Yes, you can make waffles without a waffle iron; however, you won't achieve the same crispy edges. Here's a great explanation on how to use a grill pan for homemade waffles. Alternatively, you can make waffles in a sandwich press using these instructions.
  • Don't over-mix the batter. Stir just until the ingredients are combined. You will still have some lumps, which is fine. Over-mixing will result in dense, tough, and dry waffles.
  • Use a good waffle iron that will cook your waffles to an even golden-brown color with those beautiful crispy edges. I love my All-Clad waffle iron, but there are many good options on the market.
  • Make sure to use a brush to lightly oil the waffle iron before adding each round of batter or spray with cooking spray. This will prevent the waffles from sticking to your waffle maker. Just don't use too much oil, or the waffles can come out greasy.
  • Keep the waffles warm while you finish with the rest of your batter by placing the cooked waffles on a wire rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet in a 200° F oven.
