How To Make Waffles Without A Waffle Maker

Don’t you have a waffle maker? No problem! There’s another option for making waffles from scratch, and all you need is an essential appliance you probably already own: the grill pan and oven. Now I will tell you how to make waffles without a waffle maker.

You already love this grill pan for grilling chickens and vegetables, not to recommend making paninis with self-made bread. But using it to make waffles is an inspiration.

Their taste and feel will be 100% waffle, complete with a crispy outside and light, airy inside. And while they still have these telltale ridges, note that they may look like a pancake.

How to make waffles in a grill pan

You need:

  1. 1batch of waffle batter
  2. Butter
  3. Grill pan
  4. Spatula
  5. Pastry brush
  6. Wire rack, for cooling
  7. Bowl


  1. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  2. ½ tsp salt
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 tbsp sugar
  5. one egg
  6. ¾ cup milk
  7. ⅙ cup melted butter
  8. ½ tsp vanilla 


  1. Mix your choice of waffle batter. Any waffle recipe will act.
  2. Place your grill pan on the stove over moderate heat until nice and toasty. Spray a few drops of water on the pan to test the heat; if the water swings, you’re able to roll. Brush the hot grill pan with butter. It should decrease right away and even sizzle a bit.
  3. Spoon the waffle mixture onto the pan and let it flowed into a round. You can attach the batter in large dollops or little ones if that’s your jam. The ridges in the pan might gain your circles look a little off, but don’t annoy about that. Your waffles will come out perfectly. You might even find the slightly unfinished, almost cloud-shaped waffles kind of beautiful.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Reduce the heat will let your waffles form ridges from the pan and get a slight char going, without heating on the outside. Now Let the batter cook until bubbles begin to form on top, the edges look hard, and the bottom set.
  5. Using a spatula, flip your waffle. Try to flip it, so the lines face the same way they did ere you lifted the waffle off the pan. It’s a tricky way, so if you can’t manage it, don’t panic. There will be zero impact on quality.
  6. Push down lightly with the back of your spatula to get your waffle to stick to ridges in the pan. Cook until this side is ended, too, then give the waffle to a wire rack.

Some Important Q&A

What is the minimum amount of time needed to proof yeasted waffle batter?

  • The liege waffle recipe I use uses the yeast for just a little bit of flavor, so I usually give it a couple of hours at room temperature.

How would I convert my overnight waffle recipe into chocolate overnight waffles?

  • I would suggest maybe making them a bit more simple, and adding a large handful of chocolate chips/chopped chocolate bar and folding them in just before cooking. Or reducing the sugar content and adding some chocolate syrup.

Why use warm buttermilk?

  • I think it’s because the buttermilk is added to melted butter and using cold buttermilk would harden the melted butter. Alternatively, you could let the melted butter cool and use room temperature buttermilk.

Amount of yeast when doubling a recipe?

  • Actually, you can safely cut the amount of yeast for a single batch in half and treat the batter essentially as a preferment that is typically used in bread. The job of preferment is to grow a yeast population; you can trust that yours will be at a dependable level by morning.
