Waffles or Pancakes?

Before I moved to the United States, one of my favorite things to do on the weekend was eating out at restaurants. One of my favorites was the International House of Pancakes. They served some of the best pancakes and waffles I ever had. Oh my goodness, I loved their waffles! They severed waffles with chocolate chips, banana, peanut butter, buttermilk, and much more! The variety of waffles on their menu made it easy for customers to choose their favorite.

Waffles For Dinner?

At this point in my life, I have a family I prefer to cook at home. I love making waffles on the weekend. Sometimes I even make them for dinner! How about that? My husband and I both love breakfast for dinner. Usually, we eat them with maple syrup, but I also enjoy having fresh fruit on the side. The sweetness from the maple syrup and the sourness from the fruit are the perfect combination.

For me, making waffles is similar to making pancakes. The batter texture is richer than pancakes but the ingredients are very similar, which makes it easier. If you know how to make pancakes, making waffles should not be a problem. I love pulling out my waffle maker from the pantry. My husband bought it a year ago after we moved to our new house.

Serve Immediately

The most important thing about waffles is that you have to serve them immediately. As in, the second they come out of the waffle iron! However, if you are cooking for a larger group of people and you only have one waffle maker, I have a tip for how to keep the waffles warm before serving. Heat the oven to 200°. After cooking the first batch, wrap them in foil and let them sit in the oven. Continue doing this until you have finished making all of the waffles.

Let's take a look at the recipe so you can make delicious waffles from scratch!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 whole milk
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat the waffle iron or maker to the regular setting.
  2. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate small bowl, whisk the eggs and vanilla together.
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the dry ingredients and gently stir until halfway combined.
  5. Pour the melted butter and milk into the mixture and continue mixing very gently until combined.
  6. Using a spatula, scoop the batter into the waffle maker in batches.
  7. Continue cooking the remaining batter until it's all done.
  8. Serve warm with your desired toppings.
  9. Enjoy it for breakfast or dinner!

        Hi Paul,

        Perhaps it has to do with the consistency of the batter. However, the waffle maker I used for making these waffles is pretty new so, they came out all nice :)

        Thanks for stopping by!

        I always find that the waffles cook better after I’ve made a few. Do all waffle irons do this?
