Tips for Delicious and Crispy Belgian waffles
Always try to use melted butter in the batter and waffle iron for a great buttery texture.
Try to use whole milk in the batter.
Make sure to preheat the waffle iron and spray it with a non-stick cooking spray to prevent your waffles get stick to the surface.
Do not transfer the waffle straight to the plate after cooking; it traps steam underneath them, which results in softening the waffle. Instead, transfer them to the oven to get further crisp and keep warm.
