The Best Belgian Waffles

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Marie

These waffles are super crisp on the outside, light as a feather inside and so scrumptious! Avoid removing them from the waffle iron too soon; they should be a golden brown. Enjoy!

LOVED IT!!

I searched high and low for a great recipe for my new Belgian waffle iron and I found the best with this one. After making it exactly by the recipe a few times, I modified it slightly (though it was already delicious the way it was :-) They are light, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside when freshly made.

My modifications were:

1) adding 1 tsp vanilla
2) adding 1 Tb malted milk powder
3) being more generous with the sugar with a heaping scoop, not a leveled-off cup

My kids both love these waffles and the recipe is easy to follow and even turns out well when you goof, LOL.... I mistakenly added twice as much oil with one batch and they were still wonderful!

I make a half recipe of these which still makes 4.5 large waffles on my George Foreman grill/waffle iron. (And I cook the waffles according to my appliance's instructions, 425 for 7-8 minutes.) What we don't eat then gets stored in a freezer bag for later. They do get soft/chewy after they cool down or are stored in refrigerator, but they are still delicious! Just microwave for a few seconds and enjoy. My toddler likes them plain as a snack, they are that sweet and tasty. And I like that they aren't "crumby" for him to eat when not in his high chair.
