True Belgian Waffles Tips
Is pancake and waffle mix the same?
Pancake mix and waffle mix are very similar, but not quite
the same. Waffle mix tends to incorporate more fat (butter and/or oils) than pancake mix. Sometimes, waffles also depend on baking powder for “lift” to get that fluffy interior, while pancakes usually rely on whipped egg whites incorporated into the batter to help them rise.
Why aren't my waffles crispy?
Soggy, softer waffles
typically happen when the waffle iron isn't heated to a high enough temperature. Always make sure your waffle iron is good and hot before adding your batter. To test the heat, drop a small bit of batter on the iron—it should sizzle and start to cook upon contact. Once you've attained a crispy waffle, top them off with our favorite waffle toppings
What's the difference between a standard waffle and a Belgian waffle?
It’s all in the appearance! A Belgian waffle is thicker and has fewer, but deeper, indentations—hello, big, beautiful pools of syrup!—than a standard waffle, like our easy morning waffles
, and usually requires a different waffle iron that is specifically made to create Belgian waffles.
