Real Belgian Stiff Dough Waffles-No Sugar Added

These came from a grandmother to one of the girls in our youth group. She was born in Belgium and this is her family recipe - they are rich and lovely. I use splenda now for the recipe as my son is diabetic, but it works with sugar beautifully too. These are the ones you only eat once a year! Great as dessert waffles too!

My son got me a new Belgian waffle maker fof Mother's Day and so I thought this would be the perfect recipe to give a try...The batter was very thick and very sweet even with cutting the sugar in half. My husband and daughter each only ate about half of their waffle befolre advising me that I didn't have to make them again. They didn't like the dry chalky texture. I had to agree with them about the texture and the overly sweetness just added to it. My son ate his whole waffle and said they weren't that bad, but I think he was just trying to be nice.
