How to Modify Pancake Mix To Make Waffles

By Serena Styles

A waffle is a dough-based breakfast cake, cooked in a patterned iron to give it a distinct shape and texture. Waffles ideally have a slightly crisped exterior with a soft, fluffy interior. Traditionally, waffles have a batter different from pancakes, but you can modify a commercial pancake mix. You must thin out the batter, add eggs to thicken the cake's texture and add a bit of oil for the crispy exterior. Allow for an additional five minutes preparation to modify pancake mix to make waffles.

Step 1

Prepare the pancake mix as instructed by the directions on the box in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

Step 2

Crack the eggs into a small bowl and whisk to form an even consistency. Pour the egg mixture into the pancake batter and stir to blend thoroughly.

Step 3

Pour the water and vegetable oil into the pancake mix. Stir to blend the ingredients and thin out the batter.

Beat the batter with an electric mixer on medium for 30 seconds. This whips air into the mixture for the correct waffle consistency. Use the waffle batter immediately.
