Easy to Use Pre-Made Waffle Dough for Your Own Delicious Waffle Creations
- Smile. You’ve got the best pre-made waffle dough in the world!
- Remove dough balls from packaging and place on a dish or cookie sheet in a warm spot in your kitchen to allow for proper proofing. A warm oven can also be used to proof the dough, but the temperature cannot exceed 110 F.
- Allow dough to rise until doubled in size. Rising time will vary depending on the temperature of your ‘warm spot’, but should be at least one hour. It’s very important to let the dough proof all the way so you don’t end up with doughy waffles! ***IF YOUR DOUGH IS FROZEN, allow 3-4 hours at room temperature or 1 hour in a warmed oven (up to 110 F). DO NOT REFREEZE. You won’t be able to get the same rise if you allow your dough to thaw, then refreeze it to bake it at a later date.
- While it’s proofing, prep some awesome toppings to go with the awesome waffles you’re about to enjoy!
- As your dough finishes proofing, turn your waffle iron on to medium-high or 350 F if it has a temperature gauge. Use your favorite cooking oil or butter to help the waffles release better.
- Once the dough ball is proofed and ready to be waffled, and your waffle iron is up to temperature, place some waffle balls on the iron and close it. Remember that the dough will spread out and expand as it cooks, so give it plenty of room. Let cook 2-3 minutes until perfectly golden brown (actual cook time may be longer depending on your waffle iron), then ENJOY! (If your waffle iron is burning the sugar, it’s too hot.)
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I store my dough balls?
Put them in the fridge as soon as you can, as you don’t want them to start proofing before you’re ready to bake them. Put them in a container with a lid, and remember to take them out about 1 hour before baking so they can rise completely. If you’re freezing the dough, make sure it’s fully thawed in the refrigerator before you start proofing (or rising) it.
Can you cook them on any waffle maker?
Yes! If your waffle maker has deeper grooves, your waffles will be more similar to the way we cook ours. If your waffle maker has shallower grooves, your waffle will be thinner but still mouth-wateringly delicious.
How do I prevent the sugar pearls from being rock hard when I cook the waffles?
The sugar pearls are most likely too hard because the dough did not proof, or rise, enough. The dough balls should basically double in size and be very soft and light before you put them on your waffle maker. The proofing process helps the sugar pearls soften before baking.
How do I get the best results?
The sugar caramelization process that occurs during cooking requires you to thoroughly oil or butter your waffle maker beforehand. Our waffles have PEARL SUGAR in the dough balls, and there will be a build-up of melted sugar in the grooves of your waffle maker during the cooking process. The melted sugar will help coat each waffle with a delicious glaze, but scrape away excess caramelized sugar between wafflings to keep sugar build-up to a minimum!
How do I clean my waffle iron so the caramelized sugar doesn’t harden between the grooves?
As explained in the footnote below, keep your waffle maker plugged in when you clean it. DO NOT turn it off and allow it to cool. If the sugar hardens, it will be very difficult to remove. Use a dry rag to clean between grooves.
Is the gluten-friendly version fully gluten-free if I use my own iron?
No. Our gluten-friendly dough always has a small chance of cross-contamination with regular dough because both are made in the same kitchen.
