Waffles are the best way to start a Sunday morning, and let’s face it, they are crispy, they are delicious and more important they are easy to make. You can eat your waffles alone, with some maple syrup, strawberries or just bananas, either way, Waffles are a fantastic way to start a lazy Sunday.
After a week of hard work, hard training, there is not a best way to have a cheat day than with a cheat breakfast. Because as you can understand, this waffle recipe is not a light, or low sugar or low carb recipe. This waffle recipe, is in fact so crispy because of the amount of butter, and they are sweet because I add sugar, and of course a lot of mix berries with maple syrup.
After trying many recipes, looking for the perfect crispy waffles, I found that the amount of butter was important, also I didn’t use either yeast or baking soda because I like my waffle crispier, but you can also add a half of spoon of baking soda to make this recipe a bit fluffy.
Of course, you can use brown sugar instead of white sugar, or you can add cinnamon instead of vanilla. The idea with this basic recipe is for you to change it as you want to develop your own recipe.
It is important also to not over mix the batter, and this batter is very thick so try to distribute it well.
Can I freeze my Waffles?
With this recipe yes! You can make a bunch and froze them for another day.
What’s the difference between normal waffles and Belgian Waffles?
Normally, Belgian waffles are made with yeast but you can also use baking soda instead. They are normally eating at breakfast, and you can put any topping you want. In Belgium, you can find the Liege Waffle and the Brussels waffle.
What is the origin of the Belgian Waffle?
Originally, this type of waffle is known as the Brussels waffle and is served plain or with whipped cream and strawberries. The person who brought the waffle to America was Maurice Vermersch. The Vermersch family instead of calling them Brussels waffles, they decided to call them Belgian Waffles.
- Waffles maker
- Electric Mixer
- 160 grams butter
- 120 grams sugar
- 320 grams flour
- 80 ml milk
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- Into a large bowl mix with an electric mixer the sugar, the salt and the eggs for 10 min approx.
- Melt the butter and add it to the first mixture
- Now it is time to add the milk and flour, and what I normally do is to add the first 2 spoons of flour and then 2 spoons of milk and so on. It is important though, to combine very gently the flour, fold in and please do not stir… Like this, you will create air on the batter which makes it fluffy.
- Spray the waffle maker with a bit of oil and pour 1/3 cup into the waffle maker and cook it till you have a nice golden waffle.
