    Default Help me waffle

    I want to learn how to be just a Killer waffle maker. There's probably a
    hundred or so waffle recipes here and a VillaWare waffler. The Villa and I
    are not friends. I'm thinking that with many attempts and tests I should
    become comfortable - competent - and maybe even great in time for a holiday
    brunch or supper.
    I've read Julia, AB, Corriher and Crocker. One uses yeast, one puts the
    batter in the refrigerator overnight. One beats egg whites and folds them
    into the batter. They all think it's pretty simple.
    I can't even manage to yank a waffle from its non-stick well-oiled
    tenacious grids.
    Do I have a defective waffle maker? Need a better recipe? Tire tool to
    beat on the grids?
    Is there a happy waffle maker here who can help me? Polly

    Well, Lee, it would be lovely if we could inherit waffle irons from Grandma
    that were well-seasoned as well as her patient guidance until we got it
    right but that's just not how it is. My hope is that the friends here can
    tell us which waffle maker is really good and what recipe is easy and
    special. Maybe together we can become waffle champions. Polly

    I gave up on waffles. The first one always stuck or burned. If I was lucky
    I would get one that worked. And then the waffle maker was impossible to
    clean.

    i would really like that as the dh loves them, we had used several and none
    were right, this waffel doug was really a dough and as iirc you rolled it
    into a ball that you set on the iron and closed it, that one i really would

    I'll confess. I *used to* do the overnight in the fridge, fold in
    stiffly beaten eggwhites at the end, seasoned cast iron waffle iron
    that was pre-heated in the oven, then finished on a burner, flipping
    halfway through.

    > I can't even manage to yank a waffle from its non-stick well-oiled

    That's most likely an unseasoned iron-- even the non-stick ones need
    seasoning. A good spray-on oil once you're at temperature might
    help.

    I like a crispy, light waffle.
    These days I'm happiest with the Bisquick recipe and my George Foreman
    grill with the waffle-iron grids.

    My wife picked up a[n inexpensive] waffle maker a couple years ago. We
    tried every recipe in their little book, then retired it and went back
    to George and Bisquick.

    Find an old waffle maker that hasn't been used to death, preferably
    with a non stick finish. My 1960's GE still does a good job. We
    found another maker a couple of years ago. I can't locate it since we
    upended the kitchen this summer for new flooring but it also works
    well. We bought one in the 1990's that had a plastic outside. Never
    worked worth a darn.

    Here is the recipe that came with my mother's waffle iron. I am about
    your age so take a guess on the age of the waffle iron. It has also
    worked well for me.

    Same experience here. Ours is 45 years old and has reversible grids.
    Waffles on one side, flat on the other for grilled sandwiches. Bought a new
    one for Belgian waffles. It cooks them, but does not give a crispy outside
    skin like the old one.

    If I had the space, I'd get a Waring WW150. This is the commercial version
    and sells for about $250. There is a home version that sells for about $65
    but I cannot imagine it being as good or sturdy.

    I never had any luck with waffle recipes. I just mix up pancake batter
    and add an egg for every cup of liquid (milk or water). I have two
    waffle irons, both with interchangeable plates. The new one dates from
    the '60s and is teflon coated. The other one is probably older than I
    am and is probably worth more as an antique than as a small appliance.
    With enough butter, neither one of them sticks after the first waffle.
    Why is the first waffle always a mess?

    I don't have a problem with waffles sticking in our waffle iron. It has
    a non stick surface. The older models typically had the first waffle of
    a batch stick but the rest would be fine. Make sure the iron is
    completely heated up before adding the batter, and cook it until it
    stops steaming. No peaking.

    I don't bother with yeast recipes. They take longer and besides, my wife
    is allergic to yeast.

    I think it's the waffle maker's heat and timing.
    My lousy Cuisinart ( you've all heard me rant about this many times)
    has to be watched like a hawk. The second that green light goes red,
    I lift the lid and have a look. I 'paint' the so-called nonstick
    with a bit of canola oil too between each waffle.

    I'd donate that effin waffle iron, but I wouldn't want an enemy to
    have to deal with it. I know how to work with it now.

    I made a batch of 8 waffles the other day - I like to have em ready
    for a quick b'fast - I toast em, then spread with various toppings.

    My batter is a mix I make ahead in quantity and store in the fridge.
    Then I just have to mix in the egg and fat free yogurt, then thin it
    a bit with a tablespoon or so of milk. I like my batter a bit on the
    thin side.

    I pry em out with a chopstick or a flat, plastic spreader.

    As to those old waffle irons, my mother had one and she had to load it
    up with Crisco. So much for being seasoned. There ain't no sucha
    thang.

    I just use Krusteaz Belgian Waffle mix and my Carbon iron. Spray a bit
    first, never any sticking.

    I tried the Carbon's Golden Malted Waffle mix, and it was good. But in a
    taste test with the Krusteaz it was not much better (particularly when you
    slather on the butter and jam/syrup), and is more expensive.

    My husband uses the recipe from Betty Crocker, using butter instead
    of margarine and adding vanilla extract. I make cinnamon apple waffles
    and fold in beaten egg whites. Both turn out lovely. I think it has
    more to do with the consistency of the batter and the timing on removing
    the waffle. A little thinner than you'd think and long enough to
    release on its ow,

    Waffle irons have to be seasoned, just like cast iron pans need to be
    seasoned, to be more non stick. You will have to 'burn' a couple of
    waffles and keep seasoning before each waffle until your iron is
    better seasoned. You will have to use butter or a pan spray even
    after it is seasoned. The waffle irons we used at the restaurant
    were the heavy cast ones that rotated. They were the round Belgian
    waffle shapes. They still needed to be well buttered before each
    waffle even after lots of use. You have to be careful though of not
    over seasoning because
    you get a buildup that would need to be cleaned off and then you have
    to start all over again.

    But for really crispy outside and fluffy inside waffles you really
    need a good waffle iron. I poked around on eBay and the beat up used
    ones were still over 200 bucks.

    Perhaps you are not letting the batter rest long enough after
    mixing. Ten to fifteen minutes. (I assume you have your waffle
    iron properly up to temperature, etc.)

    There is a wide range of waffle recipes. Try separating the eggs and
    beating the whites then folding them into the mixed batter. Due to my
    cardiac diet, my wife has taken to substituting half the flour with
    whole wheat. You can also use buttermilk instead of regular and add some
    baking soda and reduce the baking powder.

    We used to have an old used waffle iron that someone had given us and it
    got a lot of use. The element wires burned out a few times and I was
    able to repair it a couple times. A few years ago we replaced it with a
    Proctor Silex Belgium waffle iron. It has a non stick surface and it
    never sticks.

    FWIW, my wife made blueberry whole wheat waffles for brunch yesterday
    and I just had one heated up with my lunch.

    My theory (and it's only a theory) is that no matter how long you
    heated it, the iron isn't hot enough until you make the second one.
