Does anyone else remember Saturday or Sunday morning pancakes or waffle breakfasts? My family would head every Sunday after to church to IHOP, for a great pancake or waffle breakfast. They had amazing combinations with all of the toppings, yummy.
Now, that I am a hockey mom, I don’t get a lot of weekends (ok, I don’t get any) free, so I have tried to come up with the same traditions, using homemade recipes. Living in New Hampshire/Vermont Border for a while, I also learned that one of the best ways to indulgence is to have pure maple syrup on the table for serving.
I am a BIG fan of homemade waffle mix, because they just taste much better, and they are really simple to whip up. If you are running short of time, you could also make a batch of homemade waffle mix, and you can also freeze waffles. I love that idea, I usually make a batch on a Sunday morning, when I am free, and I make enough to last a month.
In order to freeze them, all you need to do is to make them the way that you usually do, and then put them onto a cookie sheet and pop them into the freezer, after about 5 minutes, they will be frozen enough to stack on top of each other and place into a Ziploc bag.
I’m still having the greatest time using my new Air Fryer — between my air fryer and my Instant Pot, I no longer use the stove. LOL.
I have been wondering how long it becomes an obsolete cooking appliance. I am also using it to see what and how I can cook stuff.
This is one of the recipes that I had on my bucket list of things to try, and it totally worked, I love playing with new recipes in my air fryer or Instant Pot. They were a bit thicker than regular waffles. But, they totally were awesome!
The exact time will depend upon the thickness of the waffles and the wattage of your air fryer. Therefore, it’s best to set the timer for 3-minute intervals and keep on checking. I would not want anyone to ruin a perfectly good waffle.
Also, I wanted to mention that I am a fan of the air fryer griddle pan, it makes the pancake and eggs so much easier to control and to clean up, so if you are wondering what pan I use, that would be found here:

Pans, I had a hard time finding pans that fit, but then one day, I ran around this amazing, which even includes a muffin tin, talk about a score!

This is a great and easy recipe, now the air fryer will replace your waffle maker. Use homemade or premade mix. Remember to check the air fryer, frequently to make sure you don't end up with burnt waffles. The exact time will depend on your specific model/type/wattage.
- 1 batch Waffle mix prepared
Start by making your waffle mix, as directed on the box.
Then spray your mold with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil spray.
Fill your mold (I found it easier after my 1st batch) to put the mold directly on the baking sheet, so it wouldn't spill, while I was moving it.
Put the tray into the air fryer oven, and set the temperature to 330 degrees F, for 4 minutes, after 4 minutes check and add about 3-4 minutes more.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
