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

"I must admit we were a little skeptical of this recipe at first because of the amount of sugar and butter called for but they turned out fabulous! Don't skimp on any of the ingredients! We topped the waffles with raspberries and whipped cream. No syrup necessary."

"My results of this recipe was not to my liking. They were way too sweet, and were not crispy like Belgium waffles I have ever had. I will look for another recipe."

"Perfect waffles. Do not fear the sugar -- it's just right. Do not fear the butter -- awesomeness all the way. Yes, I needed to increase the cooking time. Added about 1:30 to my normal cook time for boxed mix waffles. Made these exactly according to the directions. I have been looking for a good, basic recipe for a few weeks and have tried others. This one is my new go-to. Make them. Eat them. Enjoy the day!"

"The woman said she got them from a family member in Belgian and the Belgian Grandmother said they "tasted like home" so I'm going to trust they are true Belgian waffles. Maybe people in Belgian make waffles different in different families. My grandmother was Polish and had special recipes from her family and I have had the same item from another family and they are different. Also Gabry Rox is talking about the Liege waffles (the super thick kind with the hunks of caramelized sugar). Anyway- I made them and they are excellent. I served them with Strawberries ."
