Waffles and pancakes are like muffins and cupcakes. They may be similar but are quite different. There is a difference in their mixture, texture and obviously shape. My waffles usually have more ingredients than my pancakes. For example, they have more baking powder, a pinch of salt and sweeteners as brown sugar and vanilla. They also differ on the cooking time. Waffles require much more time than pancakes. This influence in their texture. My pancakes are soft in the outside but my waffles are crunchy in the outside and soft and moist in the inside.
