Now, you can make waffles in the comfort of your home and enjoy it with the family. Indeed, the waffles made with the mix are not that different from the store-bought one. People even argue that it’s better. You can say that Waffle House has provided a fun DIY way to make waffles at home.
It serves as a shortcut because it is faster and less stressful. To make these waffles you do not need so many ingredients or equipment. There are some that you can easily make yourself. Homemade improvisations are also available for the equipment needed if you do not have them.
The Ingredients and Tools to Use in Making the Shortcut Waffle
For the homemade waffles, you will need the following ingredients:
- A bag of the Waffle House Mix;
- 4 eggs;
- 2 quarters of half-and-half;
A whole bag of the Waffle House Mix may be too much for you to use at once. That is totally understandable, all you have to do is to re-measure the ingredient to fit into the amount you want to use. It’s best you split it into half or quarter of the bag for easy measurements. The half and half can be made in the comfort if your home too. All you need is one part heavy cream and one part milk. You mix them together and your half and half is ready for use!

In making the waffles, two equipment will be needed. The first is the bain marie which is used to mix the ingredient. A bain marie is an equipment that keeps food warm due to the heat from the boiling water underneath. In place of this, you can put a bowl in a pot of water boiling over low heat.
When ready, you will transfer the batter into a bowl to keep in the refrigerator overnight. This is the reason why one with a cover will be preferable). You will also need a waffle iron to pour the batter into. This will help cook the batter and make it take the waffle shape.
How to Make the Shortcut Waffle Using the Waffle House Mix
First, you set your bain marie or put the bowl over boiling water. Then, you break your eggs into the bain marie/bowl. Pour your half and half into the bain marie/bowl and then whisk. Be careful, this part is very delicate. You need to whisk the eggs and the half and half till they are fully incorporated.
Next, you add the Waffle House Mix all at once since it doesn’t clump up. You whisk the batter till you get a very smooth consistency. You should keep on whisking until there are no lumps and all ingredients are incorporated. This makes a perfect batter for the waffle.
Once the batter is set, pour it into a bowl. The idea is to put the batter in the refrigerator overnight. This helps set it right and gives it more time for all ingredients to be incorporated. In the morning, take the batter out of the refrigerator.
Now, for the part people find the most fun! Pour the batter into the waffle iron machine. After doing that, let it cook for three minutes. The waffles should have a golden color to indicate that it is properly cooked and ready to eat. The best waffles are the ones that are crispy enough.
Finally, remove the waffles from the waffle iron and transfer them into a plate. You now have the perfect waffle made from home! It can be enjoyed with many options depending on personal preferences (syrup, cream, fruits, etc.).
