3 egg yolks

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 tablespoon vegetable oil

2 ½ cups eggnog

Then in a medium bowl, beat together your egg yolks, vanilla, vegetable oil and eggnog.

Blend your wet ingredients until completely incorporated.

Next start whisking your egg whites. You want to whisk them until they are stiff and thick. I use an electric mixer to do this.

Once stiff, pour them into your batter and gently fold the whites into the batter.

Let the batter rest for about 15 minutes before you start making waffles.

Tips and Tricks for Eggnog Waffles

  1. These waffles don’t expand 50% like boxed mixes … so fill that waffle iron up!
  2. These taste wonderful sprinkled with powdered sugar with whip/nutmeg but also taste great with the classic butter/syrup topping.
  3. The eggnog makes these a little more dense, so you want to make sure you cook these until there is no more steam. Enjoy!

Doubling the recipe

This eggnog waffle recipe is easily doubled or even tripled. So don’t be afraid to feed it to a crowd.

Should waffle batter be thick or thin?

Waffle batter should be a little on the thicker side whereas pancake batter is a lot thinner. You want to think of it like the consistency of honey. You want to make sure the lumps are removed from the batter as well.

Fluffy Eggnog Waffles

Eggnog waffles tend to be a little bit more dense, so to make fluffier waffles, let the batter sit a bit (15 minutes) before starting to cook your waffles.

Another way to make fluffier waffles is to separate the egg whites from the yolks. When you separate out the whites you want to whisk them until they are thick and stiff. You will want to do this with an electric mixer, unless you are wonder woman who can whisk for awhile!

Keeping Waffles Warm

If you want to keep your eggnog waffles warm while still making waffles, you will want to preheat your oven to degrees.

Then you want to place a cookie sheet, with a piece of parchment paper on it then an oven safe metal cooling rack.

When waffles are done, place them on the cooling rack in the oven until you are ready to eat.

Are waffles supposed to be crispy or soft?

Waffles should be crispy on the outside and soft and spongy on the inside. When you do my eggwhite secret that I mentioned you will have perfectly crispy waffles on the outside and soft and spongy waffles on the inside. Hence the name perfectly perfect Eggnog Waffles!

Do I spray a waffle maker?

Yes, you want to grease your waffle iron! The best way to do this is with cooking spray. You can also grease your waffle iron with butter or oil.

The only time you don’t want to grease your waffle iron is if it is a non-stick waffle iron.

Why do waffles stick to the waffle iron?

There are a few things that cause your waffles to stick to the waffle iron.

The first cause is not spraying your waffle iron with cooking spray. If you do not have a non-stick waffle iron you need to spray it.

The second cause is pouring batter into your waffle iron prior to it being hot enough. You definitely want to make sure it is the right temperature before making waffles.

The third thing is you fall victim to impatience. Sometimes we want to check on our waffles too early wreaking havoc on them and having your waffle split in half! So, keep your waffle iron closed while it is cooking. You will know that your waffle is done once their is no more steam coming out of the waffle iron while it is cooking.

Reheating Eggnog Waffles

Toaster

The most popular way to reheat waffles is in the toaster.

Microwave

But if you prefer a softer waffle you can reheat your waffle in the microwave. You just want to do it in small increments (10-15 seconds at a time) because cooking them for too long will make them rubbery.

Oven

If you are reheating a bunch of eggnog waffles at once the best option might be in the oven. You will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and cook them for 10 to 15 minutes.

Be sure to loosely cover with foil so they don’t dry out, but yet the steam can still escape so they can crisp up a bit.
