Legend has it that Thomas Jefferson returned from a trip to France with America’s first waffle iron. A century later, street vendors were selling hot waffles slathered with molasses or maple syrup.
The bake time and yield will vary with this recipe depending on the type of waffle iron you use. Some waffle irons use up to 1 cup of batter and others use just 1/2 cup.
Way too many waffles? Freeze them! Wrap cooled waffles in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and freeze up to 1 month. Unwrap waffles and reheat them in a 350°F oven for 10 minutes or pop them in the toaster until crisp.
