How To Make Fluffy And Crisp Waffles

Making homemade waffles is easy, but there are a few steps that will help you get the best waffles each and every time. If you are looking for fluffy and crisp homemade waffles, see my tips below.

  • Buttermilk | Buttermilk in waffle batter reacts with the powder giving your waffles the ultimate fluff. If you want your waffles to be extra fluffy add just a bit more baking powder!
  • Egg Whites | If you want super moist and delicate waffles, whip up egg whites and fold it into your batter. I have found that gives you a really light texture while still crisping up and making it golden on the outside.
  • High Heat | One thing many miss is starting with a hot waffle iron. Get that nice and hot so it will provide you with a nice crisp texture on your waffle. If you do a low heat, you will get a soft waffle.

How To Keep Waffles From Getting Soggy

All you have to do is preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Then as you are cooking your waffles place waffles no a baking sheet and toss in the oven. Make sure to do a single layer.

If you stack the waffles they will become soggy. The key is a single layer and keeping them warm in the oven until ready to serve.
