How To Store Waffles?

Let the waffles cool down completely and then place them in an airtight container or bags. Store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

After the 2 hours, you can then transfer them to freezer-safe bags or an airtight container. If you don’t have room for a baking pan in your freezer you can wrap them individually and freeze them that way.

How Do I Know When Waffles Are Done Cooking?

It depends on which waffle iron you have. Some have a light or they beep to tell you when the waffle is done cooking. If yours does not have that you can go by when you stop seeing steam coming out of your waffle iron.

How Much Batter To Put In A Waffle Maker?

Pour about 1/3 cup of batter into the waffle iron to make a 4-inch waffle.
