Whisk together the ingredients just until smooth. There may be a few lumps & that’s fine. The important take away is that you do not want to over blend the batter or it will produce a tough waffle due to the development of the gluten in flour. It is ideal when preparing homemade yeast breads but not in delicate batters such as waffles & pancakes when a light, tender texture is desired.
