Belgian Waffles {recipes #40 & 41}

For one of our wedding showers my sister-in-law Kelsey gave us a Belgian waffle iron. It was a really fun gift, especially since his family has always loved waffles for breakfast!

Its a really nice Food Network waffle iron from Kohl's and it makes square waffles which I think is kinda fun!

We tried the waffle recipe that came with the instruction manual {#41}, but it was really a let down. It had nutmeg in it and it was just ok. Not to mention we couldn't figure out how to measure the batter and it ended up all over the floor.. :)

So we tried again with a cookbook that we got at one of our showers. This recipe was FANTASTIC! We added cinnamon and vanilla {as we did with the pancakes} and it was just perfect! 

Belgian Waffles
{Borrowed and enjoyed from: The Great Breakfast Book by Nordic Ware}

Serves 6


2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
2 T. Sugar
1 tsp. salt
4 large eggs, separated
1 1/4 cups milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
cooking spray or oil

We added: 

1 tsp. vanilla 
1 tsp. cinnamon

1) Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
2) In another bowl, whisk together egg yolks, milk and oil.
3) Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet mixture. Blend the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just moistened.
4) In a small bowl, or kitchenaid mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Don't over mix.
 5) Preheat the waffle iron lightly coating with cooking spray or oil. 
6) Bake in waffle iron according to machine. 
7) Serve warm with your favorite topping.


We served ours with strawberry slices, warm REAL maple syrup and cinnamon sugar dusted on top. It was a treat, but not too sweet! We had bacon on the side, but anything will do!

What is your favorite waffle topping?
