Preparation instructions

  • Whisk the contents in the bowl thoroughly until they are perfectly mixed.
  • Transfer the mixture to a larger container or jar and keep it in a cool and dry place.

If you want to make the waffles crispier and tasty, you can add extra oil. Since to make waffles you will need a waffle maker because you will need extra high heat. The heat should be from both sides unlike it would be for pancakes.

If you are used to making pancakes with the sane procedure, you should have in mind the differences between the two. Unlike the objectives with pancakes, which is to make them light and cake-like, waffles need to be crisp on the outside. They also need to be fluffy as well as light on the inside. With the heat coming from both sides, the waffles will acquire the crispiness you need.

With extra fat on the waffle, it will be crucial for better results and a tasty experience. The fat comes in handy if you need your product to develop a crispy surface. Also, adding some extra sugar will help caramelize the surface of the waffle. If the batter is very sweet, however, you need not add extra for sweetness.

As for the final aspect, make sure you check the oil levels. Adding extra oil will make the batter for the waffles runnier and also make cleaning the waffle maker easier. This will be different from the one used for pancakes. The runnier the batter is, the lighter the waffles will be. As the waffle maker heats up, the batter will expand. The result will be a crispy and light waffle.

Now that you know what you need to have as well as the procedure, why not surprise your loved ones? Remember not to overmix the eggs or other ingredients if you want to see their faces beaming with happiness.
