Mine always take waaay longer to cook (50 mins?) and are still soft in the middle and I can’t get them out of the mold. Any tips?

    Hey Lisa, ovens play a big part in cooking times! Give your oven plenty of time to preheat so turn it onto the right temperature before you even start making the waffles some can take 15 minutes to heat up also you could try placing them higher up in the oven so on the top shelf as that might help them cook faster too. Hope that helps!

Will these work in a waffle iron too… or do they need to be baked in oven?
