I've always enjoyed making waffles in hotels. In the pharmaceutical industry, beginning reps are usually required to be sequestered together for weeks somewhere near the company's home office to train dilligently on clinical trials, disease states, detailing, sales force automation, product benefits, black box warnings, pipelines, adverse reactions, package inserts, pharma guidelines, compliance issues, and the 2 minute hallway visit with a physician. If you've seen Love and Other Drugs, you've gotta know that guy's work life was identical to what mine was for 5 and a half years. I stayed in a lot of hotels during those years, and I always loved making waffles there. So I bought my own waffle maker for home.
I learned that the flippable waffle maker helps to spread the batter evenly. We've found that somewhere between 3/4 cup and 1 cup is how much batter you need to fill the waffle maker.
You can probably go shorter or longer. We've found that 4 minutes is about how long we like for our waffles to cook. Love the timer!
To make chocolate chip waffles just like ours, get some store - bought waffle mix. Krusteaz is our favorite brand! Mix in a handful of chocolate chips. Then, cook as shown above.
