Today I will give you long teeth, and I want to talk to you about making waffles! I am convinced that most of you have tried them at some time, because they are quite a temptation wherever you see them. Today you will see how easy it is to prepare them at home (although it is true that you need the right utensil), and be inspired to accompany them with the most tempting ingredients.

Let's start with the basics: What is a waffle?

A waffle is a kind of cookie that is characterized by having a grid shape . The dough is made from eggs and flour, usually has a touch of vanilla and is served hot.

Although you can eat it as it is with tea or coffee, the usual thing is to accompany it with chocolate cream or cream, ice cream, syrup, fruit, nuts with honey, jam...

You may also see it written in French, gaufre, or in English, waffle.

How to prepare waffles

The waffles obtain their characteristic shape since the dough is introduced between two plates with said pattern. Traditionally they were iron plates, although nowadays and for convenience we find them non-stick, to facilitate the preparation process.

The important thing when choosing a waffle iron is that it distributes the heat well, otherwise the waffles will be burnt on one side and the raw dough on the other ends, which could even be indigestible (remember that it is about a dough of flour and egg).

A waffle iron that gives us all the confidence and of which we are very satisfied is the Nordic Ware waffle iron . It is somewhat heavy despite being made of aluminum (since it contains two irons), but it has such a construction and thickness that the heat is distributed evenly, and allows you to make 4 wonderful waffles at a time. In addition, the plates have a non-stick coating that helps to achieve perfect waffles without complications.

Basic recipe to prepare waffles


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 cup of milk


  1. Separate the whites from the yolks. Beat the egg yolks until light and fluffy.
  2. Add vanilla and butter, mixing until incorporated.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt. Add to egg mixture, alternating with milk, until well combined.
  4. Whip the egg whites until they form peaks and incorporate them into the dough with enveloping movements.
  5. Preheat the waffle iron over medium heat for two minutes on each side (to save time, preheat the two halves separately, on two different burners at the same time). Brush the waffle iron with vegetable oil or non-stick spray and pour approximately 1 cup of batter into the center of the waffle iron, when closed, the batter will spread throughout the base*.
  6. Cook for about 1 minute, turn the waffle iron over and cook for an additional 2 minutes or until golden. Remove with a silicone spatula and serve with the accompaniment that you like the most.

*On the waffle iron page ( here ), under the product description, you will see a video that shows very well how waffles are made. If you want to make a single waffle but without the square edges, put less amount of dough in the center, it will expand in a circular way but without reaching the edges, obtaining an irregular but original waffle that is just as tasty (in the video you will see it ).
