Tips to Achieve Golden, Flavor-full Waffles

  • Master the art of mixing the ingredients. Mixing waffle batter is a bit tricky, because the batter should be smooth enough to flow through the dimples of the waffle plate. Overmixing makes the waffles less fluffy. The perfect mixing motion should be gentle and slow.
  • Make sure you know when to lift the lid of the waffle maker. Wait until the maker indicates that it is ok to do it via a beep or LED light. Lifting the lid too early could make the waffle stick to the plates and rip into two.
  • You can use your oven to make sure the whole family eats the waffles at the same time. Set the oven temperature to 250° F and transfer completed waffles to the oven. Apart from keeping the waffles hot, the time in the oven adds some crispness to the waffle. Don’t stack the waffles because they become soggy in seconds.
  • The first waffle is usually a waste, use it as a guide to adjust the amount of batter and control settings until you have the results you want.
