Batter Up

November 16, 2015

There can’t be much waffling when it comes to waffles.

The well-known batter cake is a popular dish at home and on menus at full-service, family-style restaurants known for breakfast; some even feature the item in their names. But waffles have a smaller presence among quick serves and fast casuals. That’s because a good waffle can be difficult to execute, takes more time to produce fresh than many other menu items, and requires an extra piece of equipment: the waffle iron.
