To all of you Belgian waffle lovers out there, you’ve come to the right place. This waffle recipe is the perfect option for my fellow sweet junkies. Until recently, I had been making these for my partner’s restaurant but a brunch menu revamp let me off the hook, so to speak. What’s great about the waffles being removed from the menu? I can now share the recipe with all of you! With their crispy golden exterior and fluffy interior, there’s truly nothing not to love about them. Their deep pockets are also a fantastic vessel for fruit, chocolate sauce, maple syrup, you name it (we even made fried chicken and waffles with them once). One important thing to note before combining ingredients; you will need a waffle maker. Duh, right? To be clear, I’m not implying that you’re a moron. Obviously, you’re going to need a waffle maker in order to make waffles. I’m specifying this crucial detail because of my very own history of less-than-stellar mom-brain moments. We tired, we disheveled, we need a cocktail. I get it. Anyhow, I’ve linked the waffle maker I use at home HERE since it’s relatively inexpensive and does the job. Now on to the good stuff; scroll down to find this delicious Belgian Waffle recipe.
