What are Waffles?
Classic waffles are buttery, light, and crispy on the outside. You only require a few minutes to prepare the batter. For waffles, you don’t need to let the butter chill. If you make more than enough waffles, you can freeze some and later reheat them in a toaster. To enhance the taste, add some vanilla extract. Williams (2015) recommended that classic waffles can be served with maple syrup and butter. You may also choose to top them with chocolate sauce. If you are not a sugar lover, you can bake sugarless waffles too.
How to Incorporate CBD in your Classic Waggle Recipe
CBD is a compound derived from the hemp plant. Unlike THC, the other major compound from the hemp plant, CBD can’t make you high. According to Larsen & Shahinas (2020), CBD contains some properties such as anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-seizure that makes it treat various diseases and conditions. Currently, people have embraced CBD due to its endless benefits. CBD can be incorporated into edibles such as classic waffles. You can enjoy the special taste of CBD and its health benefits by using CBD oil or butter in classic waffles.
Tips for Making Perfect Classic Waffles with CBD
To make the best waffles with CBD, observe the following:
Use Warm Milk
Warm milk will make the butter in your batter remain melted. The butter will also spread evenly, making the waffles fluffy and light.
The Butter should not stay for Long
After mixing the dry and wet ingredients, do not let the butter sit for long. Some ingredients may sink at the bottom, leaving the butter at the top of the batter.
Preheat the Oven
Pre-heat the oven to about 200 degrees. Nadulski et al. (2005) clarified that CBD is very sensitive to high temperatures. If you expose CBD oil to very high temperatures it may lose its potency rendering.
Store CBD Oil or Butter in a Dark Room
Kainrath et al. (2017) argued that CBD is light-sensitive. Ensure your oil is stored in airtight containers in a dark room. Exposing it to too much light makes it lose its potency.
Add CBD towards the End
CBD oil or butter should be added toward the end after mixing all the other wet and dry ingredients. It is a good way of making it retain its potency.
Use flavored CBD Oil
Flavored CBD oil will enhance the taste of the waffles. CBD oil comes in different flavors. However, if you like it plain, unflavored brands exist too.
