How To Get Crispy Waffles

If you prefer your waffles to be crispy on the outside and light on inside, use these tips for crispy, crunchy waffle perfection.

  • Make sure the iron is hot. Be sure to let it preheat for at least five minutes before adding batter. You can test if it’s ready by flicking a drop of water onto the iron’s surface – if it sizzles, the iron is hot enough.
  • Swap half of the buttermilk for plain milk. While buttermilk gives it a rich flavor, replacing half of the buttermilk in a recipe with plain milk gives you a light, fluffy texture inside.
  • Bake the finished waffles in the oven. It might sound crazy, but it helps draw even more steam and moisture out of the waffle, leaving it perfectly fluffy and crispy. Preheat the oven to 250F and place a wire cooling rack inside of a baking sheet. As the waffles finish in the iron, transfer them to the sheet in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes.
