These waffles are made from scratch and make a delicious breakfast, lunch, or dinner for two.

 

We use a double-sided flipping waffle iron so they are cooked and done all at the same time. No need to keep one warm while waiting for the second one to cook.

 

What is the difference between Belgian and regular waffles?

Belgian waffles have deeper pockets than American-style waffles, which makes them great for holding lots of little pools of syrup and fruit toppings. The texture is lighter and crispier.

 

They require a Belgian waffle maker with a deeper, larger grid pattern. Most Belgian waffle recipes are yeast-based, to get that crispy texture, but we are using a waffle batter that has baking powder for leavening and beaten egg whites for lightness.

 

How to make Homemade Belgian Waffles:

For the Belgian waffle batter:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

 

Using a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, oil and vanilla.

 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir in.

Cook until the waffles are golden brown, about 7 – 10 minutes. Follow the cooking instructions for your specific waffle iron. Mine has lights on it that tell you when to flip it and when it’s done cooking.
