How To Make Pancake Waffle Toast
Although it may sound intimidating to combine 3 different breakfast foods it's not too bad.
First, you will want to prepare your waffles according to the waffle batter mix instructions.
Next, prepare your pancake mix according to the mix instructions and pour it into the skillet in a small circle.
Place the waffle into the middle of the pancake batter, cook on one side and then flip over to cook on the other side.
Prepare your french toast batter, dip both sides of the waffle into the batter and cook on medium heat in a skillet with butter.
How Can I Scratch-Make Waffle Batter?
While our recipe calls for boxed waffle batter, you can totally use your own scratch made waffle batter too! The idea behind using boxed batter mix is to reduce your time and effort in the kitchen, but if you’re someone who would like to keep it on the healthier side, you could try this too!
Making your own waffle batter is super easy! All you’ll need to do is first whisk eggs together in a large bowl until they turn fluffy, and then add in vegetable oil, flour, baking powder, milk, salt, sugar and vanilla.
How Can I Scratch-Make Pancake Batter?
Yes, you can swap the boxed pancake batter for scratch made batter too. Just like the waffle batter, it is pretty easy to make it.
Start by mixing flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a large bowl. Once all the ingredients are fully incorporated, create a well in the center and add in some milk, egg and oil. Mix well until you get a uniform mixture.
How Can I Make Sure the Pancake Waffle French Toast Doesn’t Burn?
If your pancakes end up burning when you make them, or you just tried your hands at this and ended up burning it, here’s why.
You might have set the heat on too high, and might have ended up burning the side of the pawaffle toast, while leaving the center undercooked. Make sure you maintain a medium heat on the pan.
Another possible reason why it could end up burning is you could be using the wrong kind of fat. Milk solids are what tend to burn when heated, so make sure you’re using oil or clarified butter from which the milk solids have been removed.
Another trick to use when making this recipe in particular is to take your time with each step, and wash your pan with cold water in between each step to cool it down.
