True Belgian Waffles Recipe

Publisher Photo
It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this recipe. Back in the U.S., I served the waffles to his Belgian-born grandmother. She said they tasted just like home. Our grandkids love these waffles with any kind of topping: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, fried apples, powdered sugar or whipped topping. —Rose Delemeester, St. Charles, Michigan

These waffles are great! They taste just like my grandmother's waffles, and I have been looking for a recipe that matches what she used to make. I added a bit of cinnamon like she used to do. So glad I found this!

MY REVIEW

These waffles really are great tasting! I love the consistency of Belgian waffles. I followed the recipe exactly. I wish I had tried them before adding syrup though. Once I added real maple syrup, they were too sweet for my taste, and I love sweets. I have lots of leftover batter, so tomorrow I plan to eat them with fresh peaches and homemade whipped cream! I think I'll prefer it that way.
