Belgian Waffles

For breakfast, brunch, afternoon tea with butter, fruit or just plain, they're delicious!
Of course, a true Belgian Waffle will have deeper indents / squares than mine but it matters not, you make the best wish what you have 
You will need:
For the Waffles:
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar, I only use brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Toppings - the lists can be endless:
  • Icing sugar for dusting
  • Maple syrup for drizzling
  • Whipped cream
  • Soft fruits eg strawberries, raspberries, blueberries etc
  • Or butter instead of fruits
  • Even jams or preserves like my homemade apple butter

Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients

  • Mix together the flour, sugar and baking powder and put to one side for a moment

Step 2: The wet ingredients:
  • Separate your eggs and beat the yolks.
  • Don't throw away the whites, we'll be using those shortly.
  • Mix together the milk, melted butter and vanilla.
  • Add the egg yolks and mix in.
Step 3: Beat the egg whites and fold in

  • Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form when you take out the whisk
  • Fold the egg whites, using a metal spoon, into your first mixture.
Step 4: Time to cook
  • Pour batter into the waffle maker and cook until golden brown.
  • Follow the instructions for the waffle maker
  • Allow to cool
Step 5: Serve and enjoy

Sprinkle with a little icing sugar, drizzle with maple syrup and add toppings.
My toppings here are:
  • Top left: Fresh, whipped cream (or vegan alternative) and sliced strawberries
  • Top right: Butter
  • Bottom left: Apple butter and sliced strawberries
  • Bottom right: Raspberries were available but they weren't used
There are endless sweet toppings you can add.
I thoroughly enjoyed mine of strawberries and cream.
I hope you enjoy yours.
