Waff-Fail!

As I said I'd planned to do in an earlier post, we attempted the Batter Blaster product to make waffles this past weekend. So here we go, the required supplies for morning waffles was nice and short. A waffle iron and the can of Batter Blaster!

(Actually, I have two waffle irons like this, I just got the 2nd one for Christmas).

So here we go -- this is Dave putting the batter on the waffle iron in full Reddi Whip glory.

And after 3 minutes, this is what we got:

Sigh.

Very crispy:

So we figured, "Hey, perhaps we didn't add enough batter..."

And THIS is what we got:

The camera lens steamed up and we got this lovely mess.

Really? When I add too much of my homemade waffle batter, I get a tall waffle -- rather gooey -- but I'd never experienced this volume of ooze before!

But this time we pulled the waffles off the iron nice and early...trimmed off the raw batter on the edges, and had something adequate (but not "great") for the family to enjoy.

As for the overcooked ones, they were fine under a blanket of butter and Aunt Jemima.

Batter Blaster is awesome! We love BB waffles at our house. Sounds like you had a little "operator error" on your Batter Blaster test flight. ;)

When cooked correctly, BB waffles rock, rock, rock. Maybe they aren't quite as scrumptious as your great grannies' from-scratch, secret recipe, but they are a heck of alot easier and taste SO MUCH BETTER THAN an Eggo!

Ha ha! I will concede that these waffles are better than Eggos, for sure! We have no problems with the flavor -- they weren't bad -- we just had difficulty learning a new batter product on our waffle iron.

Thanks for the comment!
