Tips & Tricks For Making The Best Bisquick Waffles

For the best waffles that the whole family will enjoy, follow these tips and tricks.

Nobody likes burnt waffles, especially when you’re expecting them to be extra fluffy and soft on the inside with perfectly crisp edges. To prevent waffles from sticking to your waffle iron and burning, set the heat to medium.

This ensures that your waffle is evenly cooked and isn’t raw in the middle or burnt on the outside.

Another thing to note is how much batter your waffle iron requires. Most waffle irons need one cup but others need more.

This is super important to remember because you don’t want them to be too thin and not have the classic waffle shape or make a mess with overflowing batter! Definitely read the manufacturer’s instructions first.

For an extra layer of flavor, you can personalize this recipe and make it your own. I love the richness of buttermilk so I often use it in place of whole milk. Adding a teaspoon of cinnamon works wonders too!

Other fun ingredients to add to your batter are nutmeg, vanilla, or brown sugar. You can even add in small pieces of fruit to incorporate their sweet flavors into the batter.

Want to transform your classic Bisquick waffle into a Belgian waffle? It’s super easy! Just add in a pinch more baking soda to make it extra light and fluffy.

Another difference between the two is the waffle iron used. A belgian waffle iron will have deeper grids making it extra light and fluffy on the inside but with a bit more crunch on the outside.

They are also much bigger in size, so if you want the full Belgian waffle experience, use a Belgian waffle iron!

Wondering if you can also make vegan Bisquick waffles? You sure can! Substitute the whole milk for almond milk or coconut milk and add in dairy free yogurt instead of eggs.

This recipe makes the most delicious waffles and they’ll be so tasty even with just a little butter. But if you’re feeling like adding a few extra things to dress up your simple Bisquick waffle, there are plenty of options you can try!

Fruits and just a little bit of whipped cream are always great on top of a stack of waffles. My favorites are blueberries and bananas!

As a snack, you can never go wrong with vanilla ice cream and some chocolate syrup or even a quick coating of cinnamon sugar. For something savory, herbed fried chicken or bacon and cheesy scrambled eggs is my go-to!

Can You Freeze Waffles?

Did you make one too many waffles? Don’t worry, because these delectable breakfast treats can be stored in the freezer! 

If you follow these steps to keep them fresh and free from moisture, your waffles can be kept frozen for up to a month.

  1. Let your waffles cool to room temperature.
  2. Wrap the waffles individually in aluminum foil or plastic.
  3. Place in a sealed container.
  4. Leave them in the freezer for up to one month!

When it’s finally time to have those deliciously fluffy waffles, all you need to do is unwrap them and reheat in the oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. You can also do this in a toaster!

What’s the Difference Between Pancake Mix and Waffle Mix?

Waffle mix has more sugar, allowing it to caramelize and create that little bit of crunch on the edges. It also has more baking powder because they tend to be fluffier. Waffle batter also contains a bit more fat, which creates that perfectly crispy exterior.

Ah, the age old question: Are you on team pancakes or team waffles? I can never never pick a favorite because they’re so similar and equally delicious! But what’s the difference between waffle and pancake mix?

Even though they’re made up of mostly the same ingredients, a waffle will have more crunch and a little more sweetness than a pancake. This is because waffle mix actually has more sugar, allowing it to caramelize for a little bit of crunch.

But the big difference comes in how they’re prepared! Pancakes are cooked on a smooth flat surface. While waffles are cooked in a waffle iron. This is one of the main reasons for the dramatic difference in texture.

So… who do you cheer for? Team waffle or team pancakes? Let us know in the comments below.
