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 have made the classic Belgium waffle recipe that is a little labour/time intensive. It requires making a batter the night before with fresh yeast. This is the first quick Belgium waffle recipe that actually tastes like the classic recipe. What a treat! The 1 cup of butter sure helps! I cut back the sugar to 1/4c....and it was still sweet. Next time I'll just use 2 tbsp sugar. A wonderful recipe -- thanks for sharing!

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!
