How to Make Waffles with Pancake Mix
If you're craving waffles but only have pancake mix in the house, have no fear! With a few simple adjustments, you can mix up waffles that are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. You'll need to increase the water, add an egg, and use a little oil when you make the batter. Once you've converted the basic pancake mix, cook the batter on a hot waffle iron and enjoy the waffles immediately! You can also make delicious savory or sweet variations.

2 large egg whites

Converting Pancake Mix for Waffles
Preheat the waffle iron.Plug your waffle iron in and heat it for at least ten minutes. The iron can heat while you prepare the waffle batter.
Measure the pancake mix, water, oil, egg yolk, and sugar into a bowl.You'll need to add other ingredients to your pancake mix to improve the texture of your waffles. Measure 1 cup (250 g) pf pancake mix, 3/4 cup (180 ml) of water, 1/4 cup (60 ml) of oil, 2 tablespoons (25 g) of sugar, and 1 large egg yolk into a mixing bowl.
- Extra water, oil, and sugar will ensure that the waffle becomes crisp and brown on the outside while it stays fluffy on the inside.
- If you'd like to double the recipe (to make one dozen waffles), just double all of the ingredients.
Whisk the batter.Use a wire whisk to combine the batter ingredients in the mixing bowl. Stop whisking as soon as the mixture is combined and set it aside.
- Don't worry if the batter is still a little lumpy. You want to avoid over beating it or the waffles will be tough.
Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks.Get out another mixing bowl and place the two large egg whites into it. Use a stand or hand mixer to whisk the whites on high speed. Keep whisking until they form stiff peaks when you lift the whisk out of the bowl.
Fold the egg whites into the batter.Transfer the egg whites to the bowl with the batter and gently fold them in until they're just combined. Take a metal spoon and twist your wrist as you lift the batter up and over the egg whites. Keep lifting and turning the batter until the egg whites are incorporated.
Pour the batter into the hot waffle iron.Once the waffle iron is hot, scoop 1/2 cup (about 120 g) of the batter into the center of the waffle iron. Slowly lower the lid on the batter.
Cook and remove the waffle.Cook the waffle for a few minutes or until steam isn't coming out of the waffle iron anymore. Carefully lift up the lid use a fork to lift the waffle out.
- Cooking time will depend on your specific waffle iron. Most waffles will cook within two to four minutes.
Create dessert waffles.Mix up the pancake mix that's been converted for waffles. Stir in some of your favorite sweeteners and cook the waffles on the iron. Top the dessert waffles with syrup or whipped cream. Consider adding:
- Mini-chocolate chips
- Toasted nuts
- Shredded coconut
- Peanut butter or chocolate hazelnut spread
Include your favorite fruit.Add nutrients and flavor by putting fresh, dried, or pureed fruit into the prepared batter. Keep in mind that most fruits will add moisture to the batter, so choose just one or two to add or the batter will become watery. You can stir in:
- Mashed bananas
- Pureed, spiced pumpkin
- Grated apples
- Fresh or frozen berries
Mix up savory waffles.Stir savory ingredients directly into the prepared batter. Add your favorite crumbled or shredded cheese, crumbled bacon, fresh herbs, or spices. You can also top the savory waffles with meat, eggs, or cheese to make a complete meal.
- For example, make cheesy waffles and top them with fried chicken. Or make a crumbled bacon and herb waffle that you top with a fried egg.
Make buttermilk lemon waffles.To make really rich, fluffy waffles, replace the water in the batter with buttermilk. You can also stir in a little lemon curd and some mascarpone cheese for flavor. Cook the buttermilk lemon waffles on a hot waffle iron and serve them right away.
If you want to make waffles with pancake mix, combine the pancake mix in a bowl with the water, sugar, oil, and egg yoke. Whisk the mixture until it's fully combined, then set it aside and beat the egg whites until they develop stiff peaks. Next, fold the egg whites into the batter. If you want to make dessert waffles, add chocolate chips or nuts at this point. When everything is fully combined, scoop the batter into your waffle iron and lower the lid.
