HOW TO STORE WAFFLES
If you end up with extra Blueberry Waffles or just want to double the batch for easy-breezy make-ahead mornings I’ve got the info you need to keep your waffles tasting fresh and delicious!
Extra waffles can be kept in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Beyond this time frame, opt for freezing them!
To freeze them, wait until they’ve cooled to room temperature, transfer them to a snug, airtight, freezer-safe container, and separate each layer of waffles with sheets of wax paper. Then, seal and freeze! Use within 3 months for best quality. Once they’re frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer-safe, zip-top bag if you need to save on space.
You could also add all of the Blueberry Waffles directly to a ziptop bag, but you’ll run the risk of them freezing together!
The quickest and easiest way to reheat waffles is in the microwave. Although, you’ll lose those crispy, crunchy edges when you do so! But, if time is of the essence, place 1 or 2 on a microwave-safe plate, cover with a damp paper towel, and heat for 30 to 45 seconds.
To reheat waffles from the refrigerator or freezer in the toaster, add them to the toaster as you would a slice of bread, but take care to use a lower setting than normal to keep the edges from burning. If you’re reheating frozen Blueberry Waffles, use the frozen setting on your toaster (if you have one).
To reheat a large batch, use your oven! Preheat the oven to 350°F and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until warmed they’re through and toasty!
4 TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST BLUEBERRY WAFFLES
- Don’t forget to allow the waffle iron time to preheat while you’re making the Blueberry Waffle batter!
- Frozen blueberries have a higher water content than fresh blueberries. It’s best to stick with fresh berries!
- Know your waffle maker! Your waffle iron includes instruction for both preheating the waffle iron and operating it to reach the desired doneness, as well as proper cook times. Because some machines will come to temperature quicker than others and/or maintain heat at different levels, it’s always best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Don’t over mix the batter. This will make the interior of your waffles tough. If you want them light and tender on the inside, use a light hand when stirring the dry ingredients into the wet.
