  • In the meantime, preheat the waffle iron. Once ready, spray with non-stick oil or brush with oil.
  • Pour ½ cup batter, more or less depending on the size of your waffle iron. Don’t overload the waffle iron so the batter does not run outside. Follow manufacturer instructions for the cooking time. Mine took more than 5 minutes to cook. Waffles should be golden brown.
