Slightly different from that of pancakes, the waffle dough is just as easy to do. We advise you to combine the following ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, eggs, yeast, salt, oil and milk. The latter should be used in moderation, since the creamy consistency of the milk will often make your waffles too soft.
