  • For best results, use room temperature eggs.
  • If you don't have all-purpose flour, you can use self-rising flour instead.

  • Replace all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour - this substitution will add more fiber and nutrients to the waffles, making them a healthier option.
  • Replace butter with olive oil - this substitution will reduce the amount of saturated fat in the waffles, making them a better choice for those looking to eat a healthier diet.

Banana Waffles Add 1/2 cup mashed banana to the batter and reduce the milk to 1 cup. Bake on waffle iron as usual.

Maple-Glazed Bacon: This sweet and salty dish is the perfect accompaniment to Watkins Waffles, providing a delicious contrast in flavors and textures. The maple syrup and bacon are a classic combination that will have your taste buds singing!

Fruit Salad: Fresh fruit salad is a great accompaniment to the maple-glazed bacon and waffles. The natural sweetness of the fruit will balance out the saltiness of the bacon, creating a flavorful and balanced meal. The bright colors and flavors of the fruit will also add a pop of color to the plate, making it a visually appealing dish as well.


Q: How much time should I bake the waffles for?
