Making your waffles (or pancakes)

WSC products.webp

There are many different types of waffle irons, but one bag usually

makes about 12-14 waffles.

For Waffles

Ingredients that you will need:

  • 1 package Waffle Social Club Overnight Waffle mix

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 stick butter, melted & cooled (1/2 cup)

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 eggs + 2 extra egg whites     **Do not add eggs until the next day

For Pancakes

​Same as above with these exceptions:

  • add 2 tsp Baking Power to your dry mix

  • reduce butter to 6 Tbsp (3/4 stick)

----------------------------------------

The night before

  1. Empty the dry contents into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Place one stick of butter (1/2 cup) into a microwave-safe mug or bowl and microwave until melted, usually 30 seconds.  Careful - the butter can spatter from the container, so you might consider covering it with a napkin or paper towel.  Allow butter to cool for 5 minutes before adding to batter.

  3. Pour the milk & vanilla into the dry mix and stir until blended.

  4. Add the melted butter slowly while stirring until blended. 

  5. Cover mixture with plastic wrap or loose fitting lid.  DO NOT seal tightly as CO2 will build up overnight and could burst.

Batter needs to rise for at least 8 hours at room temperature! You can let it rise in the fridge, but it will take longer.

The next morning

  1. Plug in your waffle iron and allow to heat to its hottest setting (if adjustable).

  2. Separate the 4 eggs and add all 4 egg whites to a small mixing bowl and set aside.  Add 2 of the egg yolks to the batter and mix until totally blended.

  3. Using a hand mixer, beat the egg whites until firm, but not dry - do not over beat.  **Pro tip - the more slowly the mixer beats the egg whites, the smaller the bubbles are and the better structure your waffle will have.  The best things come to those who wait!

  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

  5. Before starting, use a small amount of vegetable oil or veggie oil spray, give the waffle iron a spritz and then close it for 1 minute before adding your batter.  Only need before the 1st waffle.

  6. Waffle irons vary greatly in power & heat levels, but generally the waffles take from 3-3.5 minutes to cook perfectly.  Like them more crunchy?  Let 'em cook a little longer.

  7. For the best waffles, enjoy immediately!  Don't be a stacker - these delicate creatures will only hold their full magical powers for a couple of minutes after cooking.  Stacking will turn them soggy so use a cooling rack if you must wait.  But don't wait - EAT THEM!
