Instructions

Step 1: Make your Angel Food Cake batter following box instructions. If using the Betty Crocker mix, only use one cup of water (1/3 cup less than the box calls for). Plug in Dash Mini Waffle Maker and wait for indicator light to go off to show that it’s ready to use.

Handy tip: Use Potholders

If you’re having a hard time removing the waffle from the waffle maker because it’s too soft, use potholders to pick up the waffle iron and “pour” the waffle on the cooling rack. It will get nice and crispy as it cools.

Yes! You can reheat waffles in a toaster or oven to crisp them back up when you’re ready to eat them.
