So I have pretty successful gluten-free waffles with this post but now I'd like to make a fairly large waffle. I don't have a large waffle maker/griddle/iron but I do have a fairly deep frying pan which can go in the oven.
I'm thinking of using the waffle recipe I have but essentially using it in the frying pan, in the oven at minimum 200c. The mixture is quite thick but my concern is that the rising won't take place as it does in the iron/griddle.
Is there any reason that a waffle needs to be made in a waffle iron, other than toasting it on both sides and giving it that distinctive square shape and indents?
