What is A Pawaffle French Toast Exactly
So what are pawaffles? 1 pancake + 1 waffle… dipped in French Toast batter and cooked to golden perfection. YUM!
How to Keep The Waffle and Pancake Batter Together
First make thin pancakes and then pour the batter into the waffle maker. Gently press the pancake into the wet batter, and finish cooking the waffle. This will ensure the pancake sticks to the waffle.
Tips for Making The Waffle French Toast
- Don’t leave the pancake waffle sit too long in the wet mixture. This needs to be dipped and placed in skillet.
- Make sure to use a non-stick skillet
- You want to do a medium heat, not too hot or it will brown the outside while leaving the custard mixture undercooked.
- Store any waffle French toast in the oven at 200 degrees to keep warm until ready to serve.
Can you freeze Pawaffles?
Go right ahead and freeze any that you don’t eat right away. For best results, place on a baking sheet and allow the waffles to freeze. Then transfer to a freezer container or freezer bag. Reheat from frozen or place them in the fridge overnight. Then heat up in a toaster oven or microwave.
