Can You Use Pancake Batter for Waffles

What’s the difference between pancakes and waffles? Both are breakfast staples, but they have some key differences. For one, pancakes are cooked on a griddle, while waffles are cooked in a waffle iron.

This means that waffles have those signature square or hexagonal shapes, while pancakes are more free-form. Additionally, the batter for each is different. Pancake batter is thinner and has baking powder to help it rise, while waffle batter is thicker and doesn’t usually contain baking powder.

So what happens if you try to make waffles with pancake batter? The results are…interesting. Since pancake batter is thinner, it will spread out more in the waffle iron and produce a thinner waffle.

Additionally, since there’s no baking powder in the batter, the waffles won’t be as fluffy as traditional ones. They’ll still be edible, but they won’t be your typical Belgian-style treat.

How to make waffles with pancake mix


If you’re in a pinch and don’t have any waffle mix on hand, you can use pancake batter to make waffles. Simply pour the batter into a preheated waffle iron and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Keep in mind that the results won’t be exactly the same as if you had used waffle mix, but your pancakes will still be delicious.
