Bisquick waffle mods!
We are having an impromptu brunch tomorrow morning and will be using bisquick to make the waffles- don't judge, its really cold here in NYC and our usual home-made batter recipe requires too many groceries in this frigid weather! Anyway, we have a really nice waffle iron and my boyfriend is nervous about using bisquick, which I haven't cooked with forever.
I've heard that using club soda (which we have) in the batter will help them from being overly-dense and will make them fluffy, but those recipes don't call for any milk. I'm SURE there are other great ways to modify bisquick, so I turn to you, dear chowhounds, to help. If all works out, we might use bisquick for our next large, Southern Fried Brunch bash as it is way easier than lugging bags of flour and buttermilk home from the store...
If it calls for egg you should still use one, but really any liquid is fine as long as its the same proportions.
I would just follow the waffle recipe on the box but add about 1/4 cup each of sugar and melted butter.
There are lots of recipes out there using a baking mix like Bisquick and club soda.
I'm not sure what you mean by, "I've heard that using club soda (which we have) in the batter will help them from being overly-dense and will make them fluffy, but those recipes don't call for any milk."
What does one have to do with the other? The basic Bisquick waffle has milk in it. But one can replace the milk with club soda.
