Tips for Keeping Waffles Warm before Serving:
If you need to wait a little while before serving the waffles, you can keep them warm by following these easy steps:
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees while you're making the waffles.
- As you remove the waffles from the waffle maker, place them on top of a baking rack that's been placed over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
- You can keep them warm in the oven for up to 20 minutes or so before serving.
How to Store Waffles

- Secondly, it's best to store waffles in an airtight container in the fridge, where they will keep for up to four days. When you're ready to eat them, simply reheat in the toaster or microwave.
- And thirdly, if you want to freeze waffles for longer-term storage, place them in a freezer bag and seal tightly. Frozen waffles will keep for up to three months.

Yes, you can freeze homemade waffles. Simple line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay the uneaten waffles in a single layer with a little space in between each waffle. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for about 45 minutes or until the waffles are frozen solid. Remove the waffles from the baking sheet and place inside a freezer safe plastic bag. Label the bags with the date and place in the freezer for up to three months.
You can reheat waffles in a toaster oven or even in a preheated oven until the waffles or warmed through.
Try reheating waffles in the toaster. This will help to crisp up the outside while keeping theinside moist. If that doesn't work, you can try putting them back in the waffle iron for a few minutes.
