BEST Ricotta Waffles 🧇

These ricotta and polenta waffles are crispy and flavorful. I served them with mascarpone cheese, fig spread and loads of maple syrup!

I created a waffle recipe for myself awhile ago and wanted to change it up with some ricotta and polenta! I love the texture the polenta adds and the ricotta gives them a bit of richness. These are crispy which I prefer because I douse my waffles in maple syrup! I also topped them with mascarpone cheese and fig spread – I would probably make a whipped mascarpone next time and add some blueberries! Any topping will do though, you could even go with a savory garnish like pancetta or eggs. 


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup ap flour
  • 1/2 cup polenta corn grits
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup milk (dairy free works too)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • Non-stick oil spray


  1. Grease and preheat waffle iron.
  2. Add ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth.
  3. Pour enough waffle batter into waffle iron to fill slots and cook until golden brown. 
  4. Serve with your choice of toppings! Enjoy!
