Waffle Recipes

Waffles are extremely popular worldwide and are essentially made from a type of dough that is cooked between two metal plates. Nowadays, we have the benefit of great appliances like waffle makers, making it far easier to quickly churn out a perfect waffle every time.

The country where they are most popular is, of course, Belgium, bringing us the term “Belgian Waffles” which are essentially large waffles with various toppings. Their versatility allows for a variety of styles from our sweet Mini Waffle Donuts to the savory Bacon and Cheddar Waffles.

Waffle Making Tips and Tricks

When making waffles, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

  1. Always be sure to spray the waffle maker with vegetable oil or a similar cooking spray to avoid sticking.
  2. When removing the waffle from the waffle maker, use a plastic or wood utensil to avoid scratching the waffle maker.
  3. Don’t over-mix the waffle batter. Doing so will cause it to become too thin resulting in poor quality waffles.
