Bananas Foster Waffles Recipe by KRUPS

The great folks over at KRUPS sent over some waffle making tips along with their KRUPS original waffles recipe and their bananas foster waffles recipe for me to share with all of my readers. They look delicious!!!

5 tips for the Perfect Waffle

1. Read the instruction manual! (at least give it a quick glance)
2. Heat your waffle iron for at least 10 minutes before pouring the batter in, or your waffles will not rise properly and you will have heavy and flat waffles.
3. Take it easy! Don’t mix the batter too quickly or vigorously. Use a slow, even tempo to get the right consistency, or your waffles will be tough and chewy.
4. No peeking! We know you’re hungry. But your patience will be reward. Don’t lift the lid too early or you will let out the steam.
5. Always finding yourself in sticky situations? Do not use cooking spray on your waffle iron. Instead, use a vegetable oil. Just take a basting brush or a paper towel and cover the surface lightly with oil. Your waffle iron will last much longer, and, in the end, you will have fewer problems with sticking. It also helps to produces a better crust on the waffle.
