Belgian Waffles

Aly loves Belgian waffles. Me, I’m not such a fan. It tastes too eggy for me. However, I got a lovely waffle maker for my birthday, so we made some waffles!

This is a pretty simple recipe which I’ve adapted from here. The waffles were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It dint convert me into a waffle lover, but I don’t think that’s possible. Even the nutella couldn’t sway me. I did have a second bite though!


6 Tbsps unsalted butter
1 cup plus 2 Tbsps unbleached All-Purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 1 Tbsp packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk
2 large eggs – separated

Method: In a small sauce pan melt butter over medium-high heat untill it browns (it should have small brown flecks in it and a nutty fragrance, about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat.
In a bowl whisk together the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix the buttermilk,cbutter and egg yolks together. Combine this with the dry ingredients. Beat the eggs whites to soft peaks using an electric or hand mixer.  Gently fold the whites into the batter in two additions.
Pour 1/3 cup of batter for each waffle into the iron and cooked according to your waffle maker.
