Tips & Tricks

  1. Use Fresh Strawberries: For the best flavor and texture, use fresh, ripe strawberries. Be sure to hull and chop them just before serving to ensure they’re at their peak freshness.
  2. Sweeten the Strawberries: Tossing the strawberries in sugar helps draw out their natural juices and enhances their sweetness. You can adjust the amount of sugar to suit your taste preferences.
  3. Homemade Whipped Cream: While store-bought whipped cream works in a pinch, homemade whipped cream takes these waffles to the next level. Be sure to whip the cream until soft peaks form for a light and fluffy texture.
  4. Preheat the Waffle Iron: To ensure your waffles cook evenly and develop a golden brown crust, be sure to preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  5. Use Refrigerated Biscuits: Using refrigerated biscuits as the base for your waffles is a convenient shortcut that yields delicious results. Look for flaky layer biscuits for the best texture.
  6. Don’t Overfill the Waffle Iron: Place one biscuit in each quadrant of the waffle iron to ensure even cooking. Avoid overfilling the iron, as this can cause the waffles to cook unevenly.
  7. Lightly Press Down: Lightly press down on the waffle iron handle to ensure the biscuits come into contact with the top of the iron. This helps them cook evenly and develop a crisp exterior.
  8. Customize to Taste: Feel free to customize this recipe to suit your taste preferences. Add a splash of vanilla extract to the whipped cream, sprinkle cinnamon on top of the strawberries, or drizzle with chocolate sauce for an extra indulgent touch.

Storage

These are best enjoyed right away right out of the waffle iron. 

If you do plan to store them, they will last about 3 days in an airtight container in the fridge. You will want to warm them up in the microwave or my personal favorite, the toaster!

Freezer

Freeze your leftover waffles in a freezer-safe storage bag. Be sure to place a layer of wax paper or parchment paper in between each layer to prevent sticking.

FAQs about cheesecloth

While fresh strawberries are recommended for the best flavor and texture, you can certainly use frozen strawberries if that’s what you have on hand. Just be sure to thaw and drain them before tossing them in sugar and using them as a topping.

Yes, you can make dairy-free substitutions for the whipped cream and cheese ingredients. Use a dairy-free alternative such as coconut whipped cream or almond milk for the whipped cream, and skip the cheese or use a dairy-free cheese alternative.

Absolutely! Feel free to get creative with your toppings. Add sliced bananas, blueberries, chocolate chips, or a drizzle of honey for even more flavor and variety.
