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

ALL I CAN SAY IS AMAZING!!!!! I did use crisco butter flavor shortening because I did not have enough butter on hand but these are the BEST waffles I have ever made!!!!

Fixed these for family this morning and they were gone in a hurry! Will consider doubling the batch next time. The only problem I had was getting the egg whites to peak-which is always a tricky ordeal without cream of tarter. Taste better than cake doughnuts!

This recipe was wonderful! I was craving a sweeter tasting waffle and this recipe hit the spot. I accidentally forgot the vanilla, but they still turned out perfect! We topped the waffles with strawberries or syrup. Excellent overall recipe, pretty easy, and I can't wait to make them again! Definitely a recipe I will keep!
