- Engage students in a conversation about their favorite waffle toppings and their understanding of the basic ingredients in waffle batter.

2. Waffle Batter Preparation (20 minutes)

- In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Add milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract, whisking until combined.
