👩🏻🍳 Eileen's Tips for Success
- Make sure all of your ingredients are at room temperature before beginning.
- Use a light touch when stirring the batter together, as over-mixing can result in tough waffles.
- If you don't have buttermilk on hand, you can make a quick substitute by adding 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar to one cup of milk and allowing it to sit for 10 minutes.
- Use an ice cream scoop to portion out the batter for even-sized waffles.
- Cook the waffles until they are golden brown and crisp, but be sure not to burn them.
- Instead of an electric mixer, you can also whisk your batter by hand.
- I like to cool my waffles on a cooling rack so that they stay crisp on all sides if I am not serving them right away.
📋 Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! To freeze homemade eggo waffles, allow them to cool completely and then place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet in the freezer until the waffles are firm. Once frozen, you can transfer them to a resealable plastic bag or container and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
The best way to reheat our copycat eggo waffles is to place them on a lightly greased baking sheet and warm them in the oven at 350°F for 5-10 minutes, or until heated through.
You can also heat them up in the toaster oven, air fryer, or microwave. However, this won't give you the same crispy texture as using the oven will.
