It is the Key to Great Waffles
Let’s think of great waffles as a hidden secret that has to be revealed. Crispy, buttery, and light treat that can be covered in honey, maple syrup or even fresh fruit. It’s the perfect breakfast.
To discover the secret, we have to understand some things first.
The pancakes and waffles are different things. While pancakes and waffles are very similar, you cannot use pancake batter to make waffles. It’s just not possible.
The secret to making great waffles (something that pancakes don’t contain) can be found in the sugar added to the waffles.
Yes, both batters contain some sugar; however, the waffles contain a bit more sugar. Sugar helps to create the crispy caramelized exterior and adds that extra crunch, and helps the waffles to get that delicious browning around the edges.
This is something that pancakes don’t have.
The waffles also contain one tiny hidden ingredient(yes, they will reveal it) disclosed) which is freshly beat eggs with egg whites.
If you’re looking for light and airy waffles, beat the egg whites separately. This will make waffles more light and will also make them more crisp exterior.
After you’ve got the waffle batter prepared then, it’s time to cook the waffles. Naturally, we cook them with the waffle iron, and that waffle iron needs to be heated before cooking.
It is impossible to get amazing results if the iron isn’t heated. The only way to get a pre-heated iron is to make waffles with a brown and crisp exterior and a fluffy interior that we all crave.
If you want to avoid the waffles becoming floppy and soggy, follow the steps to preheat. Also, don’t forget to add some fat too!
Why use malted milk in Waffles?
If you have a kitchen similar to mine, and you have hidden close to the condensed milk is a tiny carton or jar of a single ingredient that can alter your life. It’s your Malted Milk Powder!
Malted milk powder might not alter your life in the end, but it’s sure to change how you bake or make waffles. I guarantee it!
Malted milk powder is a fantastic method to impart that caramel-like, toasty texture to all kinds of items, but in particular, your waffles for breakfast.
Malted milk can be used to make cake, desserts, and even plain bred milk to improve flavor and browning. Therefore, storing this versatile, powerful ingredient is a good idea.
What’s the Difference Between Malted Milk and Malted Milk Taste Like?
What does malted milk mean? It is a powdered mixture of malted barley extract, salt, milk, and baking soda. Malted milk is generally used to mix the milkshake or sprinkle over ice cream; however, it is also used for other purposes.
It can be incorporated into whipped cream, blondies, pannacotta, and tasty malted waffles. It can be used almost anywhere you’d like to give a toasty taste.
Malt powder is often used commercially in baking bread to enhance the browning process and add an extra dimension and a hint of sweetness. It is the same for malted milk powders used in baking at home.
Doe to extracts of barley and wheat Malted Milk Powder is inadvisable for people following a gluten-free diet.
Additionally, the milk from the malted milk isn’t suitable for vegans, so if trying to create GF and vegan waffles you’ll have to skip this recipe!
Customizing Your Waffles,
chopped nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate chips are great with these waffles.
It is possible to top your waffles either after or during baking. When you have placed the batter onto your waffle iron, sprinkle some pieces of chocolate or chopped nuts on the waffle, press it, and cook.
If you plan to use whole berries, be aware that it can be challenging. It is best to decorate the waffles with berries when they have been cooked. If you add them to the batter when cooking, you’re going to get highly squishy waffle pieces.
The reason for this is that fruit will release some liquid. This is the reason it is preferential to put them alone.
