How to Store Homemade Waffles: Tips and Tricks for Keeping Your Breakfast Treat Fresh

Waffles are a delicious breakfast staple that can be enjoyed at any time of day. Making homemade waffles is even better because you know exactly what ingredients are going into them. However, storing homemade waffles can be a bit tricky to ensure they stay fresh and don’t become soggy or stale. In this blog post, we’ll give you tips on how to store your homemade waffles correctly so that they will taste just as good when reheated.

Freezing Homemade Waffles

Freezing your homemade waffles is the most effective way of storing them for long-term use. Here’s how to do it:

Cooling Down Your Waffles

After making the waffle batter, cook the waffles until crispy and golden brown in color according to your preference. Once cooked, lay out the warm waffles on a wire rack and leave them there until completely cooled down.

Packaging Your Waffles

Once cooled down, place two or three of the same-sized waffle pieces with a piece of wax paper between each one on top of each other in an air-tight container, plastic baggie or wrap them tightly with cling wrap.

Labeling Your Waffle Packaging

Label every packaging container/baggie with date including batch number (if more than one batch) before placing it/them into freezer storage space

Reheating Frozen Homemade Wafflers

Frozen stored homemade wafers must be reheated properly if you want them still tasty as newly made ones after thawed from freezer storage before serving.

Here’s how to reheat frozen stored homemade wafer safely:

Baking Method:

Preheat your oven up-to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180┬░Celsius then put frozen stored wrapped in aluminum foil wafer inside until its crispy (about ten minutes) after that unwrap it and let sit for a few minutes before serving.

Waffle Maker Method:

you can also reheat stored frozen homemade waffle in your preheated waffle maker, place one piece of waffe at a time into the maker then cook it as if you are making new ones (but this one will take less time than if you make them from scratch).

Refrigerating Homemade Waffles

Homemade waffles can be kept in the refrigerator but only for a short period not more than 5 days to maintain their quality. Here’s how to do it:

Cool Down Your Waffles

After cooking the homemade wafflers, allow them to completely cool down on wire racks before placing them into an air-tight container or plastic baggie. Note: don’t stack hot or warm home-made sweetable products because steam will cause sogginess.

Labeling Your Waffle Packaging

Label every packaging container/baggie with date including batch number (if more than one batch) before placing it/them into fridge storage space

To Reheat Home Made refrigerated Wafer :

Place cold homemade wafer in toaster oven, microwave or oven at about 350 degrees Fahrenheit/180┬░Celsius just enough to heat up without burning its outer crust and crispness.


Now that you know how to store your homemade waffles properly, you no longer have to worry about throwing away excess left-over batter. Freezing is still the best option for long-term storage while refrigeration is suitable for short-term use only. Ensure proper labeling of all packaged containers so that reheating doesn’t become confusing; using appropriate reheating methods get these delicious breakfast treats ready quickly each morning!
