Tips for making perfect Paleo waffles
I want to share a couple of tips for making waffles, and not just Paleo waffles; these tips are for any type of waffle.
How do you grease a waffle iron without spray?
Most of us probably already know how unhealthy non-stick cooking spray is. The key to preventing waffles from sticking to the waffle iron is to grease the cooking plates. But you can use melted butter or vegan butter to do that! Just use a silicone pastry brush to lightly coat the plates. This also helps create extra crispy edges without using real flour, ya know?
Help! How do you remove a stuck waffle?
To prevent your waffles from sticking, be sure to grease the plates well and preheat the waffle maker. If it’s not hot enough, when you add the batter, there is nothing but trouble ahead. If you do end up with stuck waffle, these tips should help you remove it.
- Unplug the waffle maker and let it cool down slightly.
- Peel away as much of the cooked waffle as you can. If you have any pools of oil or butter, use a paper towel to soak them up.
- If the entire surface of the plate is covered with cooked waffle, see if you can slide a silicone spatula underneath to pry it away. If that doesn’t work, soak the waffle with cooking oil and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then, dampen a clean towel or rag to wipe the grids clean.
Don’t have a waffle maker? Not a problem; use the batter to make a Paleo pancakes recipe instead!
Just be sure to use a griddle or nonstick pan to cook them in. Also, let the batter chill in the fridge for 20 minutes before you make the pancakes. Or, instead of traditional pancakes, you can mash the bananas with an egg and omit the flour. The batter will be thick enough to form patties; cook them in a large skillet to make griddle cakes.
