  • If you’re preparing several batches of waffles for a family breakfast, keep the first batches warm and crispy in an oven set to 200°F.
  • Add extra flavor to your waffles by adding cinnamon, vanilla extract, or nutmeg to the batter.
  • For the lightest, fluffiest waffles, separate your egg before preparing the batter, and whip the egg white until it forms soft peaks.
