Homemade Belgian Waffles
Pancakes are our traditional weekend breakfast, while Belgian waffles are our favorite hotel's breakfast. When I came across an almost brand new waffle maker in a garage sale for only $2, I knew immediately that I'm about to up the game for our weekend breakfasts. And what an upgrade - homemade Belgian waffles. So so yummy - let's just say I had to guard the stack of waffles very closely so I can take a picture for the blog before my pack of wolves devours them 😂🤣😃
2 1/2 cups flour.
4 separated eggs at room temperature.
2 cups milk.
4 tablespoons sugar.
4 tablespoons melted butter (60gr).
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
Pinch of salt.
2 teaspoons baking powder.
½ teaspoon baking soda.
Oil spray for greasing.
In a large bowl mix egg yolks, sugar, vanilla, and melted butter.
In a separate bowl mix the flour with baking soda and baking powder. Add to the mixture and mix.
Beat the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Mix ⅓ of the egg whites in the batter to make it lighter in texture, then, using a spatula, fold the rest of the egg whites very gently only till combined. Don't over do it or you won't have nice airy fluffy waffles.
Your batter should be thick, if it's not add some more flour, if it's too thick add some more milk.
Spray your waffle maker machine on both sides and fill with your batter.
Close and cook until golden brown.
Remove and repeat with the rest of the batter.
Serve warm with your favorite toppings.
