  • Set a wire rack out.
  • Preheat both sides of the pan over medium heat until hot.
  • Lightly brush each side with oil an pur batter into the center of one side and swirl it out a bit. Immediately place the other side of the pan on top, flip the pan and cook for 2 minutes or a bit more.

  • Optionally, lay fresh fruit and/or coconut on one side and roll it up for a great hand held snack.

  • The cooking time is for 1 waffle.
  • Some people break apart the eggs. This is great for young children.
