What if I told you that there was a way to make the perfect waffle? Would you be interested in learning this secret? Well, keep reading because we are going to get into how to make the best breakfast of your life.
It starts with some good quality ingredients like milk, flour, sugar and eggs. All of these ingredients just need to be mixed together before they can go onto the stovetop. Once you have them all combined and heated up on medium-low heat for about 3 minutes it is time to pour them onto a hot waffle iron! Now comes what might be my favorite part: cooking! This lasts anywhere from 1 minute for thin Belgian style waffles or 2 minutes for thicker American style ones.
The last step to the perfect waffle is adding some delicious toppings. This can be anything from a little bit of butter and syrup or even just powdered sugar on top! The possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can put out with your breakfast.
Now, if only there was someone who could teach me how to make this perfect recipe every time I tried…
Belgian style waffles – American style ones – thin (qualifier) thick (qualifier) powdery topping(s)(s/plural form) fluffy crunchy creamy sweet savory salty spicy hot cool cold dry damp wet artificial natural organic nutrient dense high fiber low fat vegan gluten free dairy free nut free soy free
butter syrup (substance) – powdered sugar topping(s)(plural form)
never cook waffles in an electric toaster, they will come out soggy and unappetizing
a little bit of dairy can be added for extra flavor and texture but if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant it’s best not to use any at all. Dairy is also typically substituted with plant milk like almond milk or coconut milk. There are less than one gram of carbohydrates per serving so go ahead and pour as much syrup on top! It won’t make your diet too high up in carbs by doing this breakfast delicacy every once in awhile…

not all waffles are created equal, try experimenting with different types of grains and toppings to see which you like best!
Step one: Mix up the batter. It can be made from a boxed mix or homemade depending on your time commitment level but if it’s just for us we’ll usually go ahead and make some fresh berries whipped cream (substance). Add in eggs, oil, milk and any other ingredients that might work before pouring in the mixture into a Belgian style waffle maker. You can also whip this together by hand too if you want to get really personal about things…we won’t tell anyone.
Step two: Cook them till they’re golden brown using either an electric waffle maker or stovetop. Once you’ve cooked them and taken a moment to bask in the glory of your kitchen creations, it’s time for step three:
If using an electric waffle maker then follow its instructions as far as how long to cook each side which usually ranges from one minute per side up to four minutes (this will depend on if you like crispy or soft). Alternatively take a couple pans, heat them on medium high with some butter until they’re golden brown and voila! Perfect Belgian style waffles are made.
You can also slather these babies in syrup, whipped cream (substance) fruit toppings…whatever tickles your fancy because there really is no wrong way when it comes to making WAFFLES.
Steps to Making the Perfect Waffle:
In a large bowl mix together your dry ingredients and wet ingredients until they’re combined. Add milk or water if necessary for thinner batter.
Heat up your waffle maker, grease it with some butter (or oil) and pour ½ cup of batter in each slot before closing the lid. For electric models, this could be between one minute per side up to four minutes depending on how crispy you want them which is usually indicated by specific instructions from the manufacturer; stovetop cooking times will vary slightly but should also be relatively short–just keep an eye out so that they don’t burn! – Carefully remove waffles when done and finish off with some butter or syrup.

Step Four: Carefully remove waffles when done and finish off with a pat of butter or some syrup.
Step Five: Repeat the process with your remaining batter and enjoy!
Other Tips: You can also make waffles in advance for a quick, easy breakfast by heating them up later on either stovetop or in the oven. Reheat at 350ºF for about 12 minutes and they’ll be almost as good as fresh out of the iron. Serve ’em hot with maple syrup…and maybe even some bacon if you want to go all out!
Variations: Add chocolate chips, fruit, whipped cream–the options are endless; just mix it together before adding any wet ingredients so that everything is evenly distributed throughout the dough (or no dry ingredient will end up being left over).
Equipment: Waffle Iron
Other Uses: You can make waffles with whole wheat flour, or even use a batter that’s half white and half whole wheat. For vegans you can substitute the eggs for vegan egg substitutes like EnerG Egg Replacer “Egg” mix and often store bought mixes are vegan too!
Storage Tips: Keep your leftover waffles in an airtight container on the countertop for up to three days. They’re best eaten when they’ve cooled down though so don’t let them get soggy. If you want to keep them longer than a few hours then put them in the fridge–they’ll be good as long as there is no dairy added (since dairy doesn’t last as long).
Waffle Iron Care and Maintenance: When it comes time to clean out your iron, never pour water into it while plugged in or turned on (lest you want an electrical fire). Sprinkle some butter inside and wipe with paper towels instead.
