- Waffle Batter – If the batter is too thick, gradually add in more milk until the batter is a thinner consistency.
- Double the Recipe – This recipe should make 4-6 large Waffles. We recommend to double the recipe so you can freeze to eat later in the week.
- Mixing the Waffle Batter – Melt the butter and milk then beat in the eggs with the dry ingredients. There will be some lumps in the batter. Be careful not to over mix. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
- Egg Whites – We used the whole egg but you can use egg whites if you prefer.
- Waffle Maker – You can use any type of waffle maker to make these waffles.
- Crispy Waffles – To keep the waffles from getting soggy, place the cooked waffles on a cooling rack until ready to serve.
How to Freeze Waffles:
Freezing waffles is a perfect way to save time and money. These pancakes can be stored in freezer safe container and placed in the freezer. They will last about 3 months if stored properly.
You can also flash freeze the waffles but placing the cooked waffles on a baking sheet. Freeze the waffles for about an hour and then place the frozen waffles in a freezer container.
This way you can take out how many you want to serve at a time.
