Tips

  • Use ingredients at room temperature.
  • Make sure you measure the flour correctly. Use a kitchen scale or measuring cup for this. If using a measuring cup, fluff the flour with a spoon. Then put it in the measuring cup and flatten it with a knife.
  • Use vegetable oil such as canola oil, palm oil, or soybean oil.
  • You can use whole milk instead of buttermilk. Milk makes the waffle crispy.
  • Make sure you warm up the waffle maker well. This prevents the waffle batter from sticking to the pan. If the machine is cold, the waffle stays wet and soft.
  • To make sure the waffle maker is warm, preheat it for at least five minutes before you start making waffles. If you drop some water on it, if it sizzles and evaporates, it's hot.
  • Put the waffles in the oven for extra crispiness. Preheat the oven to 250 °F (120 °C). Place the cooling rack on the baking tray. Arrange the waffles that you cooked in the waffle maker in a single row on the baking tray. Transfer to the oven and heat for a few minutes.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the waffle iron.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat the eggs and sugar at high speed for about one minute, until well beaten and fluffy.
  3. Add the water, milk, buttermilk, melted butter, and oil to the egg mixture. Mix all the ingredients well until combined.
  4. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix all the ingredients until the batter is smooth and creamy.
  6. Then add food coloring and mix for about 30 seconds. You can skip this step if you wish.
  7. Grease the waffle iron with a brush or spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Pour ½ cup of dough into the waffle maker and close the lid. Bake the waffle for a few minutes until it turns light brown.
  8. Remove the waffle and transfer it to the cooling rack. Repeat with the remaining waffle batter.
  9. Once the waffles have cooled, place them in the freezer bag and freeze.
  10. Warm in the toaster before serving.
  11. Serve with ice cream, agave syrup, or fresh fruit.
