Yes. If you do not want to reheat your waffles and would like to serve them cold you can.

Should you let the waffle batter rest?

It is recommended to allow the batter to sit for 15-20 minutes to get fluffier waffles. We did not let our batter sit so it is not an absolute must step that you have to adhere to.
