What is the secret to making good waffles?
The secret to making good waffles is to use the right ingredients. All-purpose flour works great for waffles. If you're looking for an even fluffier texture, you can try using cake flour.
And don't forget the baking powder! It's what gives waffles their signature fluffiness. Also, be sure your waffle iron is preheated before cooking your waffles and that you use enough waffle batter to fill your iron.
Lastly, don’t forget to grease your waffle iron with a little butter or oil before you start cooking.
How do I store leftover waffles?
Leftover waffles can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
You can also freeze them for up to three months.
You can reheat them straight from the freezer, or allow them to thaw overnight in the fridge or at room temperature before reheating.
How do you reheat Nutella waffles?
Reheating Nutella waffles is super easy. Simply place the waffles on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until warm and crispy.
You can also microwave them for 30-60 seconds, but that may make them soggy. For best results, always reheat in the oven or toaster oven.
