Can I make this ahead? How long does waffle batter stay good in the fridge?

Waffle batter can be made ahead and refrigerated for later use. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Before using, stir well. Some discoloration and graying can occur. Stirring will cause this discoloration to go away.

What kind of waffle maker do I need?

There are many styles and shapes of waffle makers on the market. Belgian style waffles are a thicker style of waffle with deeper pockets that can either be a circlular or rectangular shape. American style waffles are thin with small grid-like indentations rather than deeper pockets. American style waffle irons come in a variety of shapes including the traditional circular and rectangular shaped irons, as well as fun non traditional shapes like Star War’s characters, flowers, hearts, and more!

How many waffles does this waffle recipe make? Can I double or triple this recipe?

This recipe, as written, yields approximately 2 cups of matter, which makes approximately 4 Belgian style waffles and 6 American style waffles. The actual amount of batter needed can vary from iron to iron. Consult the owner’s manual that comes with your particular model of waffle maker. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
