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

MY REVIEW

Way to sweet maybe 1/4 cup sugar my husband didn't even eat half of his waffle now I have all that extra and wasted batter

MY REVIEW

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.

MY REVIEW

For anyone who is lucky enough to have been to Belgium and had their waffles, you will know this recipe is spot on. If you modify at all, you will not have the intended results. These are supposed to be sweet, dense, and a little crispy on the outside and that is exactly what these waffles are. Topping them a little butter and fresh fruit is perfect! This is a treat we can enjoy for special occasions. So yummy!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 3, 2014

Super tasty, I wish I could rate this recipe twice! Followed the directions to a T and they came out better than expected. True restaurant quality; soft and fluffy on the inside, with a light crisp on the outside. Yes, it seemed like a lot of butter and a lot of sugar, but since this was my FIRST time trying out this recipe, I wanted to follow the original ingredients/measurements to give it a fair shot. I'm so glad I did!
