Belgian Waffles

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.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of melted butter
  • ¾ cups of sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ tsp of baking powder
  • 2 cups of flour
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 1 ¼ cups of milk

Here’s what you’ll do:

  1. Preheat waffle maker.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat melted butter and sugar in an electric mixer until smooth. Add 2 egg yolks, milk and vanilla (save the egg whites, you’ll need them after).
  4. Add butter mixture to the dry ingredients. Beat until combined.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold egg whites into batter.
  7. Pour batter per waffle into the waffle maker as per manufacturer’s directions (depending on the size of the iron, different quantities of batter could be needed).
  8. Top with whatever garnish you desire and enjoy!
