I LOVE waffles! I would choose waffles over pancakes any day! The one thing that pancakes have over waffles (in my opinion) is that you don't have to use a waffle iron to make pancakes. I hate getting out the waffle iron and only being able to make one waffle at a time.... it takes soooo long. Also, cleaning up the waffle iron afterwards is pain to me.
All of these thoughts lead up to my experiment... I was going to use waffle batter and cook it like a pancake. No waffle iron.
At first, it was exciting...
It seemed to be just like a regular pancake...
What happened is it just got thicker and thicker as it cooked. Maybe the picture doesn't capture it very well, but it was very thick... and dense. I realized that waffles are much heavier than pancakes. I feel kinda dumb, some of you are like, "Well, duh!" This was probably common knowledge for most people, but completely mind-blowing to me.
So, waffles are denser than pancakes (again mind-blowing for me). I guess the waffle iron always made it seem lighter to me, controlling it's thickness. I do not think I like waffles as much this way... too thick and heavy. I learned that there is a reason we use a waffle iron to make waffles.
Next experiment... PANCAKES IN A WAFFLE IRON!!! Haha just kidding... unless I get the urge to try it one day :)
