How to Keep Waffles Warm and Crisp for a Buffet

How to Keep Waffles Warm and Crisp for a Buffet
Waffles have a distinctive shape and texture.

Waffles are dough-based cakes cooked in a molded iron that creates a distinctive waffled pattern. They are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. When serving waffles at a buffet, you'll need to make sure they stay this way. You can keep them warm and crisp for up to two hours with a warming plate and a baking sheet.

Step 1

Preheat the warming plate to "high."

Step 2

Lay the waffles on the baking sheet in a single layer. Stacking them on top of each other traps steam between each waffle, causing them to become soggy.

Step 3

Place the baking sheet on the warming plate and cover the waffles with paper towels. The towels will keep the waffles warm without trapping steam and softening them.

Step 4

Serve the waffles within two hours for the best flavor and texture.
