Celebrate National Waffle Day Aug. 24 with waffles for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert! Whether you prefer the thick and crispy Belgian kind or the dense and chewy Liège, waffles pair well with almost any topping.
Traditionally, waffles are served at breakfast, but we think they're appropriate any time of day. KRUPS has provided fool-proof tips to make the perfect waffle as well as some tasty recipes for sweet and savory waffles to enjoy all day long.
The do's and don'ts of waffle making
Do heat your waffle iron at least 10 minutes before pouring the batter in or your waffles won't rise properly, and you'll have flat, heavy waffles.
Don't mix the batter too quickly or vigorously. Mix slowly and evenly to get the right consistency, or your waffles will be tough and chewy.
No peeking! Don't lift the lid too early or you will let out the steam.
Don't use cooking spray on your waffle iron. Do take a basting brush or a paper towel and cover the surface lightly with vegetable oil. Your waffle iron will last much longer, and you'll have fewer problems with sticking. It also helps to produces a better crust on the waffle.
