Waffles are a classic brunch and breakfast item. They are so popular due to their fluffy inside, crispy outer shell and their deep pockets which are perfect for holding maple syrup.
The only problem with waffles is that they can take 6-8 minutes to cook, therefore you have to keep the warm so the whole family can eat at the same time.
The best way to keep them warm is by placing them on a cooling rack in the oven at 100C. Try not to stack them as the steam can make the crisp outer layer go soft.
