Practice Makes Perfect

Perfect batter should pour easily and spread evenly across the waffle plate of your waffle maker. If your batter is too thick add 1 tablespoon of flour and gently stir it in. Continue adding flour until you reach the right consistency. If the batter is too thick, add 1 tablespoon of milk or buttermilk and gently stir it in. Continue adding liquid until you reach the right consistency.
