+ If I mix the dry and wet ingredients in a bowl without a blender, why do I need to let it sit overnight before I cook my waffles?

Letting your batter sit will give the grain an opportunity to open up and absorb some of the liquids. If you stir, shake, or mix then cook right away, the batter will be too thin to form properly into a waffle. It may work for pancake batter but you will find the end result will to be crepe thin and crunchy.

+ Does it make a difference in the finished waffles if I mix the dry and wet ingredients by hand or using a blender?

Yes, when blending the grains they open up and absorb the liquds, making the batter thicker, therefore your washboard waffles will be thicker. The grains will open when you mix the batter by hand, but you will find the waffle is more grainy and a bit thinner in consistency.

+ Does it matter if I use egg white substitute or egg whites from fresh eggs?

The only difference you will find is that the fresh cracked egg white batter and finished washboard waffle using the fresh cracked egg whites will have a fluffier texture than that of the egg white substitute.

+ Can I use whole eggs instead of separated whites if I want?

It is not recommended. The batter from the whole egg will be to thick to cook, and have an extremely eggy taste.

+ Do I need to spray cooking oil on the waffle iron before I put on the batter?

Yes, it is recommended that you spray the waffle maker lightly before laying new batter into the iron.

+ On the package it says to add 1 cup of egg whites (or egg white substitute). If I separate out the egg white from the yolk myself (not using egg white substitute) how may eggs do I need to get 1 cup of egg whites?

1 cup of egg whites corresponds to about 6 separated eggs.
