My Waffles Are Soggy & Limp!
Posted by: Stavs
Date: December 27, 2005 01:37PM
I have a pretty decent wafflemaker and everytime we make waffles, they are soggy and limp. Our waffler makes normal waffles, not that fancy belgian crap-good ole fashioned American style. What is the secret to making crisp waffles? We've tried different recipes with no luck, and we let them cool down on wire racks. Any ideas?

TIA,

Stavs

turn up the temp if you can, and don't put the batter in until it is hot. this will allow the outside to get crispy and leave the inside nice and soft.

heat, heat, heat
and
cold refrigerated batter, not too thickly made though





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

You might want to reconsider that specific statement . . . unless you are totally inept, then I would question your judgment to rate waffle makers.

You must waffle while the iron is hot. If the iron is not hot then your waffle is soggy and limp.

So what you're saying is, don't waffle while you're waffling or your waffles will be wiffles. ;}

Edit: For shizzle and bling, bling, too.

More butter or oil.



That's a lot of pesto.

Add some melted butter, slightly cooled, to your batter and as nearly everyone else has said, make sure your waffle iron is as hot as you can get it.

Slightly cooled batter, also mentioned above, is also not a bad idea.

Each iron varies. It sounds like you're not cooking them long enough. Are you following the instructions for your iron?

I'm gonna try the cold batter and the butter. I remember watching some cooking show on pancakes and the guy swore on cold batter.
