Recently I came across a silicone waffle mold set, enough to bake 8 waffles at once. I'm not too keen on silicone bakeware, although I do use unbleached parchment paper and silicone baking mats which contain siilcone, so once again, I decided to see what the concerns are for using silicone for baking.
I decided to give it a shot, and WOW, I actually love it. The silicone molds wash up quickly, bake evenly, have no "off" taste and make waffle-baking, even for a large batch, a breeze.
Simply, use your favorite whole grain or gluten-free waffle recipe (here is mine), fill each mold to cover the ponts, bake in a 430 F oven for 9 minutes. Then remove the waffle molds from the oven, and over a baking sheet, flip out the waffle, so the indented side is up. Bake an additional 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and serve with your favorite toppings.
You can freeze any extra waffles and reheat in the oven or toaster oven for a quick breakfast or even a snack. For a smaller batch, cut recipe in half.
