French Waffles

This recipe has many variants. Every mother and grandmother in France probably has her own version that is, of course, better than everybody else’s!

This one comes from the wonderful Mimi Thorisson, a food blogger, cookbook author, mom, dog lover and Lacanche owner who now calls the South of France home.

Feel free to add your favorite jam, Nutella or just a sprinkle of sugar to these delicious waffles!

Recipe courtesy of Mimi Thorisson


  • 400 grams plain flour
  • 6 grams baking powder
  • 125 grams melted butter
  • 25 grams sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 500 ml milk (enough to make the batter smooth but not too liquid)
  • A dash of range blossom essence/water


  1. Mix the flour, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl.
  2. Slowly pour in the milk, adding the eggs one by one.
  3. Pour in the butter, stirring constantly, and finish off with a dash of orange blossom water.
  4. Mix well, the batter should be easy to stir but not too liquid.
  5. Your dough is now ready for the waffle iron. One small ladle of batter is usually enough to cover the waffle iron, depending on the size.
  6. Cook 2 minutes or so (your machine usually has its own timer).
  7. Serve with jam, nutella, icing sugar and if you wish.
