Tips

  • Cooking time will vary depending on your waffle iron, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions for guidance. Preheat your waffle iron according to its instructions. Allow it to reach the desired temperature before adding the batter.
  • Be careful not to overfill the waffle iron, as the batter may spread and overflow during the cooking process.
  • Resist the temptation to open the waffle iron too soon, as this can cause the waffle to break apart or stick to the iron. Wait until the waffles are fully cooked before removing them.
  • Don't overmix the batter; a few lumps are okay.
  • You can keep cooked waffles warm in the oven until ready to serve.

FAQs

Can I make muffin mix waffles without a waffle iron?

Unfortunately, the waffle iron is what creates the signature shape, texture, and crispy exterior of these muffin mix waffles. If you don't have a waffle iron, you can still use the muffin mix to make muffin mix pancakes. Simply prepare the muffin mix as per the instructions, thinning out the batter if necessary and adding extra milk, or milk substitute, little by little until the desired consistency has been reached. Then simply ladle ¼ - ⅓ cup of the batter onto a preheated skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes. Once the middle of the pancake starts to bubble and the outsides have turned golden brown, flip it and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings, and enjoy!

How long can I store leftover muffin mix waffles?

Once cooked, let your waffles cool completely, before storing them in an airtight container or freezer bag. They can be stored for 2-3 days in the refrigerator or up to two months in the freezer. When ready to eat, simply reheat them in a toaster or oven until warmed through. If frozen, thaw first.

Can I make muffin mix waffles from scratch instead of using a mix?

If you have a homemade muffin batter recipe that you prefer to use instead of a pre-packaged mix, then please do! Simply prepare the muffin recipe you like according to the instructions and adjust the consistency to be slightly thicker for the waffle batter. Then follow the same steps for making the waffles.
