It’s no secret that every Monday I post either a pancake or waffle creation. Though I try not to be biased, some of my recent favorites have been waffles. Since really the only recipes I do post are breakfast related I get a few questions on how to create the “perfect” pancake or waffle. Or I’m generally associated with only eating pancakes or waffles…whatever floats your boat. Instead of posting a recipe today, I just thought I’d share some of the questions I’ve gotten as of late.
Do you ever use egg whites instead of whole eggs in your recipes?
I personally don’t because I have never had luck with egg whites creating a crunchy waffle. The waffle has fallen apart more times then I can count with using egg whites. It has nothing to do with nutrition or calorie count, but I have found that eggs bind the waffle so much better.
What sort of waffle maker do you use?
This one from target. A little more expensive and I’ve gone through 3 in my lifetime but well worth it.
What is your favorite waffle?
Currently the oreo waffle is my favorite. My staple and easy to make is probably the red velvet waffle too. I have been tending towards sweet lately. I went through a savory waffle phase a few months ago.
How many waffles do you eat daily?
Ha, this question made me laugh. You see I don’t actually eat waffle and pancakes as much as you would think. Sometime during the week I have one to create a new recipe. I normally have a high carbohydrate one before races (3 hours before), and then maybe 2-3 times at other times. I’d say I probably have 5 or so waffles/pancakes weekly. It just seems like I have a lot more because that is really the only recipes I post. Oh well. (Incase you wondered, I consume a lot of eggs as well).
What do you top your waffle with?
Yogurt, sugar free syrup, peanut butter or if the recipe has a specialty topping…then that.
What kinds of flour do you use for waffle making?
Normally whole wheat or buckwheat (I personally like how dense buckwheat is). I also use peanut flour if I want a higher protein (only available online I think?). I’ve used coconut flour once and I just recently posted an oatmeal based waffle. I don’t use a lot (or any) really specialty flours such as almond meal or whatnot. I just don’t have a need nor do I really care too.
That’s all the questions I’ve gotten thus far. You can always ask specifics or more. I’m here for all your waffle needs.
Questions for you:
Any waffle ideas for next week?
Have you had luck using egg whites?
I don’t know why but they fall apart for me…so I gave up on that quite a while ago.
