Homemade Restaurant Style Belgian Waffles

I love making homemade waffles and these waffles are some of my favorite. They are thick and fluffy with deep pockets to hold all of that melted butter and syrup. Top them off with strawberries and whipped cream and you have a party in the mouth with every bite.

Equipment

  • Waffle Iron
  • Sifter
  • Spatula
  • Whisk
  • Bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour (256g)
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2 cups of milk (480ml)
  • 2 Tbs of sugar (25g)
  • 1/2 stick or 4 Tbs of unsalted butter, melted (56g)
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract (2ml)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt (2g)
  • 2 tsp of baking powder (10g)

Instructions

  • First separate the eggs putting the egg whites in one medium bowl and the egg yolks in another bowl. Add the sugar to the bowl with the egg yolks and mix together with a mixer or whisk.
  • Next add the melted butter, vanilla extract and milk. Mix again until blended.
  • Sift the dry ingredients together then place into the bowl and stir them into the batter with a spatula or wooden spoon. Don't use the mixer we don't want to over mix the batter.
  • Mix the egg whites with a mixer until peaks form. Then fold the egg whites in with the waffle batter. Don't stir the batter because that will ruin all the nice air you created into the egg whites. The batter is complete.
  • Using your favorite waffle iron pour in the amount will vary depending on the size of your iron. Close the lid and cook those waffles until nice and golden brown. Oh yeah. Top them off with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
