When it comes to waffles, I am inclined to say the Belgians do it best. You simply cannot compare a frozen Eggo waffle to a rich, fluffy, decadent Belgian one, and I believe the hype pertaining to Belgian waffles is, without a doubt, warranted.
I also conveniently happen to have Belgian ancestry, so I can say this with utmost confidence. They simply are the best.
Because frozen Belgian waffles aren’t exactly the most common thing to come across in the freezer aisles in the grocery store, I though I would share with all of you a recipe to make these bad boys from your own home. This recipe comes from thesaltymarshmallow.com and it has phenomenal reviews.
- 2 ¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 Large Eggs Separated
- ½ Cup Vegetable Oil
- 2 Cups Milk
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Preheat your waffle iron, spray with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
- In a medium bowl beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
- In a separate medium bowl mix together the egg yolks, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract.
- Add the egg yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Fold in the egg whites.
- Pour the batter onto your hot waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions**
- Serve immediately with butter, syrup, powdered sugar or any other favorite toppings,” the recipe states.
Personally, I enjoy my waffles with margarine and maple syrup, but every once in a while I’ll go crazy and have them with some whip cream or ice cream and some fresh sliced strawberries.
My mouth is watering as I type this, in case you’re wondering.
Anyways, you’re welcome my friends. Now you can make these divine creations from the comfort of your own kitchen.
