    I make up a big batch of waffles periodically, eat a few, and freeze the rest. When I want a waffle, or have company and they want waffles, I can just pull out one or more and toast them up. They taste as fresh, and I like them better than store bought waffles.

    I started looking around earlier at waffle recipes, and I came across this article about oven baked waffles, which I'd never heard of. I think it sounds interesting, especially for those who haven't invested in a waffle iron. Not everyone wants a bunch of small kitchen appliances lying around taking up space, and I'm sure this mold is a lot more lightweight than my waffler. If I didn't have my waffle iron, I might consider buying this, and if I did, I'd probably buy a few of them, so I could make even more at one time.

    Have you ever baked waffles? Would you try using a mold like this? It mentions that one side doesn't have the holes, but since one side lies flat on your plate, that probably doesn't matter. I do like having the butter and syrup snuggle into the holes, but one side of holes is all I'd really need.

    Yes, and yes again! Love my waffles. My wife has a lot of those 'silicone' molds for baking.
    Have to talk her into getting me some. Now to practice my 'sad puppy' look.:(

    I have some silicone trivets and also 2 baking mats, but no silicone pans. I do have the ice cube trays that I believe are silicone, but maybe they're just old fashioned rubber. I sort of like the idea of making them in the oven in those molds, because you can make more at one time. Sometimes it gets tiresome making them one after the other in the waffle iron, but I still really enjoy making them.

    The only time I liked waffles was when I was a kid and would make ice cream sandwiches with them.

    Your post reminded me that I saw chocolate waffles somewhere recently and thought my grandsons would love those!

    I also love waffles and I never fail to buy one whenever I would pass by the Belgian Waffle kiosk. That kiosk is exuding the aroma of waffle that you can smell even when you are on the far end of the mall's center aisle. That's why it's hard to resist the temptation to buy. But making a waffle by myself, oh, I don't think it's practical because it seems that I'm the only one here who eats waffle. That waffle iron is not that expensive but I don't want to make waffles, I just want to eat waffles.

    We use a waffle maker, and have not tried the oven. For us, making the waffles is as much fun as eating them. We do it as a special breakfast, with a pot of special coffee. They are delicious,and worth the wait. They are best right out of the waffle maker, piping hot. They are the real thing! ;)

    I haven't ever had baked waffles. I mean, how do they get the waffle shape? I have always used the waffle iron. I like waffles, lately I have been adding coconut flour to the waffles so that they aren't quite as fattening. These are the options that I like. I like to customize waffles by adding pumpkin, choc chips bananas and other things. However, just plain waffles are good as well. There is nothing quite as good in the winter as a home cooked waffle, even if they have a gazillion calories in them!

    Good to know that they got waffle bakers, but I got no time for it, so I buy those boxed ones with nutritional numbers that's not so bad. I just pop it in the oven and we got breakfast. My home loves it with peanut butter and jellies that are sugar free. I just got no time to bake them up and the frozen ones work okay for now. I'm glad there are good easy way to bake waffles up for I do love waffle ice cream too. Thanks for the info.

    I never make waffles as we prefer pancakes. We have a large griddle so we can make a lot at a time, We put them in ziplock bags in the freezer so we don't have to cook them every time.
