How to make Belgian Waffles
- Make the batter by stirring common pantry items together with other common refrigerator ingredients. I’m talking about flour, sugar, leavenings, butter, milk and eggs. Things we all have.
- Once you whisk the batter together check the thickness or viscosity. If it’s too thick, add in a splash of milk. If it’s too thin, add in a sprinkle of flour. You want a pourable batter that will hold it’s shape for a second before falling back into the rest of the batter.
- Cook the waffles in a buttered hot waffle iron. Don’t use cooking spray, use melted butter and generously brush the iron. It makes a difference! Also, check the manufacturer’s recommended settings for cooking times.
- Serve with delicious toppings. Fruit, whipped cream, powdered sugar, maple syrup, butter, ya know, the good stuff.
My biggest waffle-making pro tips would include: using melted butter in the batter as well as on the waffle iron, using whole milk when possible, cooking the waffles until golden brown and just slightly crispy along the edges and serving warm. The berries and powdered sugar are a bonus but be sure to use real maple syrup and butter at the very least when serving these beauties!
This is the waffle iron I own and I love it because it has those classic deep grooves that Belgian Waffles are known for. Honestly, this batter will work with any waffle iron you have, regardless of brand or thickness. I just like the Cuisinart brand and I happened to get it on sale. The bottom piece is dishwasher safe and the actual iron itself is nonstick, so it makes for easy clean up.
