Breakfast pastry known as a waffle is prepared from batter and fried between two heated plates, often known as waffle irons. It is typically served with toppings like syrup, butter, fruit, or whipped cream and has a characteristic lattice-like design and pancakes.
Waffles can be made with many ingredients, such as flour, eggs, milk, sugar, and butter. Flavorings like fruit, chocolate chips, or spices can also be added. They can be served at any time of the day and are a common breakfast item in many nations.
Here’s a classic waffle recipe:

When you make batter or prepare mixture, always make sure to keep the right consistency and not over mix it. Use a preheated and properly greased waffle iron. One more thing to keep in mind that the cooking time can be different for each waffle iron, so keep an eye on them to prevent over cooking.
Instructions of waffle recipe
First we have to preheat the waffle iron, then take a medium mixing bowl and add the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk them properly until they just combine.
Take another mixing bowl, mix the milk, eggs, melting butter, and vanilla extract, and beat the mixture until well blended.
Now add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix them properly, but do not over mix it. It’s OK if there are some lumps left in the batter.
Scope the batter on to the preheated waffle iron until the waffles are golden and crispy; that means they are cooked through.
Now waffles are ready to be served with different toppings. You can use maple syrup, whipped cream, fruits, and nuts.
How to store waffles?
Storing waffles properly can help maintain their texture and flavor. Here are some tips on how to store waffles:
Cool the waffles:
Allow the waffles to cool completely on a wire rack before storing them. This prevents condensation from forming and making the waffles soggy.
Wrap the waffles:
Wrap each waffle individually in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This prevents air from getting to the waffles and keeps them fresh for a longer period of time.
Store in an airtight container:
Put the wrapped waffles in an airtight container. You can also use a resealable plastic bag. This helps keep them fresh for a longer time.
Freeze the waffles. Waffles can be frozen for up to 3 months. Put the wrapped waffles in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag and store them in the freezer. To thaw, simply leave them at room temperature or reheat in a toaster or oven.
By following these steps, your waffles should stay fresh and delicious for longer periods of time.
