I have some wheat flour ground up and was going to make waffles w/it. I'd like to have them tomorrow for breakfast but mixing and making takes SO LONG. Do you think the batter would be okay if I mixed it up tonight and refrigerated till the morning? I didn't know if baking powder would lose it's PUFF if it was mixed up too long before baking.
thanks,
kristina

I'm not sure. How about making them tonight then popping them in the toaster for breakfast? I've done it that way with good success Smile.

I was going to suggest this. Or maybe just mix up all the dry ingredients and add the wet ones in the morning.

My dd makes waffle batter and refrigerates left-over batter all the time and the waffles turn out fine for us. I would only refigerate left-overs for two days at the most. HTH. Smile

Thanks all!

I ended up just mixing dry and adding wet in the morning. Knowing that you can mix up and have batter in fridge is encouraging though -- I think I'll try it when I don't have any pressure if breakfast fails.

I do always make a double batch and freeze for toaster waffles later (though, I think I'll need to start tripling since my crew are plowing thru the waffles). I feel so much better about serving these since I use whole wheat, ground flax, and added wheat germ.
Thanks again!

Sometimes baking powder batters don't keep. If you use that "double acting" baking powder realize that one of the "actings" is when liquid hits the powder and the other one of the "actings" is when the batter gets hot on the iron.

I like the above suggestions but with our recipe for waffles, we found that the toasted didn't do a good job reheating (actually our toasted doesn't do a good job of anything but that's a different post -- look for it in the future: "I threw my toaster out the window").

For reheating waffles, we just heat the waffle iron up again and stick the already-cooked waffles on it. That way they are crisp and evenly heated (our toasted didn't crisp them and often burned the ridges before heating the dents).

reheating in the waffle iron ? That is one I haven't tried -- we'll have to see how that works.

I didn't realize the difference in "double acting". I appreciate that!
