The Batter - Waffles are prepared with a thin batter richer than that used for griddle cakes and made lighter by the use of more eggs.

The Waffle Iron - Waffles are baked in a corrugated waffle iron which must be well-buttered with a brush or soft cloth each time before cooking a waffle.

Baking - Both sides of a waffle iron must be heated before buttering and the waffle is baked largely by the heat of the iron. The first side of the waffle can be quickly turned, the second side will require longer cooking. Cook till both sides are well-browned.

Serving - Have hot plates ready for serving. Serve as soon as baked. Serve with bacon, syrup, or powdered sugar.
