Belgian Waffles

My oldest daughter loves breakfast food, so the other night I made her a batch of Belgian waffles that just melt in your mouth. This isn't a quick recipe, but it is easy, and most importantly, delicious. Perfect for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. Try them yourself.

Belgian Waffles

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 cups milk (I use 1%)
Non-stick cooking spray
  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In 1 medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a second bowl use a wooden spoon to mix the egg yolks and sugar together until the sugar is completely dissolved and the eggs have turned a pale yellow. Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine.
  4. Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do this a little at a time. Do not over mix.
  5. In third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute.
  6. Using the rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Don't over mix!
  7. Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter into the iron to just cover waffle grid. Close and cook until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  8. Serve immediately.
Makes 8-10 waffles depending on the size of your waffle iron.

Your older daughter and I have something in common. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast too. I love the rich, hearty flavors and textures of breakfast meals. It's also probably because I'm more of a morning person. Haha! Anyway, I love that waffle recipe of yours. It sounds delicious, just by looking at the ingredients. I'm sure I'll try that out for breakfast tomorrow, or later this day even. Thank you for sharing. All the best!
