Recipe Tips:

  • Combining Ingredients – When mixing the dry ingredients with the wet ingredient some lumps are ok.  Make sure to let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Prepare Waffle Maker – Make sure to preheat the waffle maker before adding the waffle batter. You may even need to spray nonstick cooking spray to prevent the waffle from sticking.
