Making waffles without a waffle maker is not only possible, but makes waffles just as crunchy, light, and delicious as if you had!
Hi Bold Bakers!
This classic waffle recipe is going to knock your socks off. Just by the look of it, these are just perfect waffles made in a standard waffle maker — but this is where I have you fooled. As an ambassador for GoodCook, I was thrilled to find out I can bake my waffles in batches instead of having to deal with a waffle maker!
Using my GoodCook Sweet Creations Waffle Cake Pan, I will show you How to Make Waffles Without a Waffle Maker. You heard me right, thanks to this awesome pan, you will have a killer recipe for baked waffles. Golden brown, fluffy, and light with buttery edges. What more could you want from a waffle?
Does making waffles without a waffle maker change the texture?
I know some of you might be wondering if it’s really possible to bake a waffle and get the same result as with an iron.
The answer is 100%! I actually prefer this to using my standard waffle iron. The GoodCook Sweet Creations Waffle Cake Pan is a waffle wizard and simple to use. Typically when I get waffles as a request from friends of family I know that no matter how great they taste, I’m going to have to spend time standing over a waffle iron, making several batches when I’d like to be entertaining.
That doesn’t even include dreading the waffle iron clean up! This pan ensures each waffle is baked evenly, crisps on the outside, yet stays light and fluffy in the middle, and takes the pain out of cleaning — pair it with my waffle batter recipe and you’ll never go back to the old ways.
Why do my waffles stick?
For those of you that usually have trouble with your waffles sticking to your waffle iron, this method of making waffles without a waffle maker is the simple solution. Your waffle makers of the past might not be as non-stick as you think and require lots of spraying or greasing to make sure your waffles lift free. This GoodCook pan takes care of that on its own.
Beyond that, sticking problems can also have to do with your recipe — with my recipe, thanks to the rich melted butter, you won’t just need to rely on your tools because the ingredients are doing their job as well.
Does baking a waffle need a special recipe, or is it just method?
While these waffles are baked instead of cooked in a waffle maker, the recipe is my go-to for either method of cooking. This waffle recipe is made of the usual suspects: flour, eggs, butter, a bit of sugar and vanilla. The flavor is just a little sweet, and they puff up to be so golden and impressive. I love to top mine with fresh fruit and maple syrup but feel free to get creative and top yours with whatever you like!
