Could somebody give me a definition of piece of dough?
Bread, pasta, pie, biscuit? I guess I don't understand the question. There are all kinds of dough. What is the context of your question?
OK, I al searching for a definition of piece of dough for waffles!
hope you can jelp me!
Waffles are not made from dough, they are made from a "batter". I guess the best way to describe a batter would be a "loose dough. It is very pourable and contains a higher amount of liquid than a dough, but has the same basic ingredients. A batter is also used for cakes, pancakes, muffins, etc. I don't know if this is what you are looking for. Hope it helps.
That about covers it
What kind of waffles are you making?
Some of the true Belgian waffle (the rich dense version you get from a street vendor in the Grand Plaza) recipes have a soft dough instead of a batter. My favourite recipe uses a dough which cooks wonderfully in an old fashioned belgian waffle maker but doesn't do well in a standard waffle maker.
If so, it depends on your presentation preferences. Use a walnut sized piece of dough for buffets or desserts, or a clementine sized piece of dough for the traditional single Belgian waffle maker.
Hope this helps-
