I make my own waffles. My mother and I are allergic to gluten, so we make gluten free everything. I make some pretty gosh darn good gluten free waffles!

I make my own, though I normally make pancakes. I like being able to throw in whatever I want. Ingredients like manuka honey, dried apricot, mint, and ground flax seed aren't usually found in packaged waffles. Since those are the sort of things that I want to eat and have in my pancakes/waffles, I will make my own and put them in myself.

This one time I tried to toast a piece of bread and my toaster caught fire
So that's why I don't cook my own food.

Awwwww dammit now I want some waffles!

I miss waffles

Whichever I go for would depend on what I have time for. If I had the time to make my own waffles, I would go for it. If I was rushing out the door, then bought ones it is!

Or pop tart........I miss pop tarts too.

Just wondering if you make your own waffles (with a waffle maker) or just buy them (Egos). I have the waffle mix to make them at home but I always buy Egos instead. They do a better job then me and of course they taste better too (I mean they do come in different tastes) And just so you know, yes I currently do have a craving for waffles


You can't compare homemade with Egos. Egos have a very recognizable taste, where as homemade can be crafted in many ways to fit many palates.

Egos are a great snack, I don't even use syrup. I usually get the blueberry ones.

As for a real breakfast, I prefer homemade.

I don't know how the shops make it soft.

When I made mine a few times some of them were hard too. Of course I left mine in the waffle maker longer than it should have been in there.

Over-mixing makes them turn out like bricks, because it creates more gluten. Basically you want to mix the wet and dry together as quickly as you can. It might look lumpy, but it'll cook out and you'll have waffles as soft as a pillow
(^-^)/ (depending on how long you cook them..)

Make it. With enough experience someone can make something better fresh than what can be bought. the internet helps with cooking tips and recipes which can be experimented with as well.

I make my own from scratch. They are much tastier that way.

Eggos are all I get. I make pancakes but never waffles.
