True Belgian Waffles Recipe

True Belgian Waffles Recipe

It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this waffle 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 was reading the reviews, as I always do, to see what suggestions were given by people who had made the recipe. I was thinking I might want to make changes based on what others had done. However, when I read some of the nasty, hateful things that some people had to say, I decided to make the recipe exactly as written so I could review it on it's own merit. My husband, our grandchildren and myself all enjoyed the waffles very much. They didn't come out of the waffle maker that crispy but since I only have a single waffle iron and wanted us to all eat at the same time, I put them on a cookie sheet in the oven to keep them warm until I got them all made. That step crisped them up nicely. And the flavor is very good. Yes, there is a lot of butter and sugar in here but this isn't something that you would make every day. Since our grandchildren are visiting, I thought that was a good reason to indulge.

I'm not sure what has happened to common courtesy, good manners and common sense but it seems to be sorely lacking in some of the people who left rude reviews on here. Given that fact, maybe you should just remember that, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all".
I admire people who put their recipes out here for us to try. It takes time and effort to do that. And, apparently, they are setting themselves up for ridicule for their trouble. That is ridiculous.
Yeast, baking powder, baking soda...who cares. The waffles were good and didn't take as long to make as they would have if I had used yeast."

"I'm really no chef at all and get laughed at by my maid when she sees me attempting anything in the kitchen. But, following this recipe yielded delicious waffles. They were absolutely what I was hoping for. I give it 4 stars however because I find this recipe to be a particularly expensive one.

"I never criticize a recipe ... however I will make an exception this time. I would have given it 0 stars. The only positive? ...Good taste. Now for the bad, if you like a soggy limp waffle then this is the waffle for you!!! Ingredient's cost for end product is very disappointing.

If you are looking for a great waffle recipe here it is:
Light 'n Crisp Waffles
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups milk
1/3 cup oil
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 tbsp baking powder
Preheat waffle maker.
Put all ingredients, except egg whites, in a large mixer bowl. Beat on low until moistened.
Increase to medium, mix until smooth.
By hand, gently fold in beaten egg whites.
Pour 1/2 cup (125 ml) batter over grids. Close waffle maker, bake until steam no longer escapes, about 3-5 minutes. Repeat."

"If the idea of a cloying, rotten-egg-smelling, grease-covered waffle sounds nice to you, then you might enjoy these. But I am not that kind of person. TOO MUCH SUGAR & BUTTER! You try and convince yourself that they will taste nice (because they look good), but upon biting into them, an immediate sense of regret floods body, as you try not to dry heave too heavily. These are perfect if you are looking for a torture instrument, but rubbish if you don't want to spend the night in a semi-comatose, nauseous state with a bowl to your side (just in case)."

"Absolutely horrible. I followed the recipe to the letter and ended up with a soupy mess. Deciding to give it the benefit of the doubt I poured some into my waffle maker and what ensued was a disaster. Not 5 seconds after closing the lid it began to froth and spill out onto my table and then onto the floor as I watched in horror at the mess and frantically applied paper towel to slow the spread of the hot, foaming sludge. I unplugged the waffle iron and opened it up to reveal that every last bit of the batter had been ejected and had left behind an oily, congealed mucus. After it had cooled I spent just under an hour scraping gunk off my table and the griddle. The only nice thing I can say is that the vanilla made it smell good. I flushed the remaining batter down the toilet . What a waste, would not recommend unless you want slime for a halloween decoration of some sort. I actually signed up just to write this review. Now I've had to find an alternative for breakfast."

then added the wet, not over mixing it. It's ok if there's clumps in it, they'll cook out. But I did not add wet until my egg whites were whipped & ready to add. (chemical reaction of baking powder, I did not mix it, I folded it, leaving in some white fluff.)
3 eggs, instead of 2, (2 egg whites don't whip in my stand mixer, so I increased it to 3) separated,
Cut butter to 1 stick of melted butter, instead of 2,
Important, to me anyway, ***[1&1/2] vanilla extract, called for 1 tsp vanilla extract, but seemed a little bland (I just like the taste the extra vanilla gives it. Forgot it once, found it too bland, go figure.)

"This recipe is pretty good, WITH SOME TWEAKS. I've made these twice now; the first time, I only added 1/2 cup of butter instead of the full cup (as per someone elses' review). They were a huge hit! They were thick, fluffy, and sweet. Perfect with or without syrup, and easy to get crispy in the toaster oven when reheating!

The second time, I made them exactly how the recipe says (with the full cup of butter), and they were awful. Floppy, soggy, and impossible to get crisp on the outside. I have a waffle iron that has different temperature settings; I tried cooking them fast on a high heat, and cooking them slow, and both times they were either golden brown and too soggy to get out of the iron, or burnt. I had noticed when I was making them that the batter had a much puffier consistency than the last time I had made them, when it was very smooth. So, after only using about a half cup of the batter, I added a half cup of flour-- and viola! they perked right up. Not as good as the first batch with only a half cup of butter, but still good.
I think next time I make them, I'll only do 1 1/2 cups of butter!"

"Excellent waffles, tasty and easy to make. I tried several recipes before (with yeast and baking powder, with just yeast or just baking powder) and this one is by far my favorite.

Few notes:
Instructions and ingredients are very clear! Read them carefully before asking questions! Recipe calls for 2 eggs separated - so you use 2 egg tolls and egg whites as needed.
Adding melted butter to the batter is common technique in European baking. The same approach is used for crepes, for example. If you add melted butter, you don't need to add any more oil to the waffle iron. Nothing will stick and waffles will come out perfectly golden. In fact, all other versions of batter I tried was sticky even with oil of spray added.
My only gripe is amount of butter - I think 1 stick of butter is enough, and that what was meant, not 1 cup.
Amount of waffles is quite on target: it says 10 FOUR INCH waffles. If you have a bigger iron with 8x8 surface you will end up with 2 and a half or 3 of EIGHT INCH Waffles.
I felt 2 eggs are perfect amount. I use large or jumbo eggs. Use 3 if they are medium sized.
Sugar - decrease amount if you are eating it with sweet stuff like maple syrup or whipped cream. If you only add fresh berries the extra sweetness makes for a good match. Like eating a fruit tart.
Otherwise half or 1/3 of cup is good."

"A few days ago I started thinking about the Belgian waffles I had during my trip to Europe back in the late 90's. When my husband suggested we make waffles this morning, I looked up recipes and this popped up. I figured it must be a sign... so I ignored my reservations about the full cup of butter in the recipe, assuaging my guilt by substituting 1 cup of flour with Trader Joe's Whole Wheat white flour, and gave it try with our regular (non-Belgian) waffle iron.

As each waffle came out of the iron, I placed it on a rack in a warmed oven to keep them from getting soggy while the others cooked. They turned out great! The exterior was crispy, and due to the butter content, I didn't have to lube up the waffle iron as much. The interior was fluffy with that slightly dense texture I remember from my travel. We served it with cooked pears and some ham on the side to serve as a counter-point to all the sugar.
The waffles were a little sweet for me, but I am less fond of sugar than I used to be. I may try making them again with a little less butter and sugar, and maybe some more wheat flour, but that could very well mess up the texture..."

"No offense meant here, but these are not even close to being "True" Belgian Waffles. I just returned from a week in Belgium and can say this without reservation. These may what many Americans may think of as Belgian Waffles, but the REAL thing is made with a thick, yeast-based dough, embedded with chunks of Pearl Sugar that crystallizes when cooked. This recipe has neither yeast or pearl sugar, nor does it contain enough flour to make the dough consistency required for true Belgian waffles. I sat in Ghent Belgium watching a shoppe owner make these and trust me, the dough is so thick, it holds its consistency in a balled up shape until it is smashed onto the waffle iron. When done correctly, these are chewy on the inside, crisp on the outside, have pockets of caramelized sugar throughout and probably weigh 3-4 times of their American counterpart.

This recipe will get you the typical waffle BATTER seen in America. I'm sure it is tasty if that's what you want but these are not even close the real thing and surprised so many of the comments below don't recognize that. AussieBaker's comment below sums it up... "light and fluffy" is what American waffles are called, not the true Belgian ones.

I added two teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter to make the rest of the batter suitable for sweet treats instead. I'm finishing the batch in one go and will be storing them over the next couple of days. Any future batches will be made with less sugar to my taste. :)"

Then I realized I mixed the egg batter wrong and instead of just doing it over I used the creation, the waffles were mouth quenchinly sweet..

"I noticed people stating that these were too sweet. I'm curious if the egg whites were properly peaked with a hand mixer and folded into the batter at the end. It should extend the batter and fluff it out to not make it so sweet? Just a question, not an accusation. It just seemed strange that I saw that twice on here. Mine turned out really fluffy and not too sweet. This was a great recipe and saved for later!"

"I tried this recipe as is, but it did not crisp and was very sweet. Great to eat alone! It was a great recipe base! I altered the recipe as follows: subbed 1/2 cup of the flour with 1/2 packed cup of corn starch, the 1 cup butter with 1 cup oil (you can do half butter and half oil too for the butter flavoring), reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup, and 1 tbsp baking powder instead of 3 1/2 tsp.

In a medium bowl I stirred together with a whisk all the dry ingredients, then added all the wet ingredients (except egg whites) on top of the dry, stirred carefully to combine...some little lumps are fine. Beat egg whites with hand mixer until glossy and peaks stand, then added to waffle mix and carefully folded it into the mix until thick and combined.
My alterations allowed the batter to be easily spreadable on the waffle maker, no need to spray with Pam to cook, crispy and perfectly sweet. Using my flip able Belgian waffle maker I would preheat on medium heat, then pour in 3/4 cup batter and spread evenly, close and set my timer for 5 mins., let cook for 20 seconds before flipping, flip and hold handle tight ensuring a good seal for another 20 seconds to shape the waffles (this will help make no spillage), let go and let cook until the last minute and flip back (top up) until timer is done - take out and WALLA! PERFECT (yet unhealthy) WAFFLES! Lol! Well now, practically everything DELICIOUS is unhealthy for someone!
SO easy! Even my teenagers can make this simple recipe! It's light and crispy just how they like it! Can be eaten with/without added sweet toppings and made with any waffle maker! This recipe doesn't need to set 30 mins to overnight or be set in the oven to crisp!"

"It took me four hours to fix these. After adding a full cup of butter, there is no way I'm going to waste it! My waffle mixture turned out lumpy thanks to the wrong order of mixing ingredients given. Whisk egg yolks and sugar together. Then add vanilla and milk, then the flour mixture and then the egg whites. I used more eggs since the batter was very thick. First waffle was raw inside as the dough isn't like any other Belgian Waffle recipe I've used. Second waffle being cooked for over three minutes and the dough was still raw on the lowest setting of the waffle iron. When you eat these, be sure you have a strong flavor fruit with them, otherwise all you will taste is the baking powder. I won't be using this recipe again as it's too fatty, wasted a ton of my time and ingredients for really mediocre "true" Belgian waffles."

"Very good recipe; even the batter smelled great. That being said, it is a LOT of each ingredient. In reference to the review that said the batter was runny, probably the egg whites were not beat properly or the ingredients were not combined right. This is one of those recipes that uses the chemistry of baking to the fullest, so all steps need to be done right. I would recommend finding a video on how a whipped egg white should look if you aren't sure. I only got 5 waffles, but overfilled on my first pour, so probably could have ended up with more. These are fluffy and rise a lot, so using a little less batter than you expect to need will be good. I used unsalted butter; I wish I had used salted to bring out more of the sweetness, but other than that, everything was great."

The third time I went back to margarine and used the correct amount and it was a little runny. So on my next batch I will go back to the 3/4 margarine. They were all delicious despite the difference. We made it Waffle Friday at our house all because of this yummy recipe."

"This is the only waffle recipe that I make. I have it bookmarked and I've made them 4 times. Each time they turn out great! The only thing I do differently is just warming up the milk so it doesn't solidify the butter. I love this recipe so much! thank you so much for posting it! :)"

"I received a waffle maker for Christmas and never made waffles before. This was the first recipe I made and thought it was delicious. Since then, I've been on the search for other waffle recipes and none of them have turned out as good as this one. So far this one is the best! It's a bit on the sweet side so I just added less sugar though, but other than that it's great. I'm sticking with this recipe."

"First time I have ever made Belgian a Cuisinart for my birthday :) These were sooooo good!! My whole family loved them! I was afraid it would be more difficult, but it wasn't. Took a little time, but well worth it! after reading the other comments, I did warm the milk..but apparently not enough, because the butter did congeal, but it blended right in very easily. Thank you for making my experience so yummy!"

"It made about half the amount of waffles it states when I made it, but other than that, it's pretty perfect. I've tried several other recipes and find they are too eggy or don't rise well or are too dense. These are light and fluffy but didn't leave me feeling hungry after I had finished. I do think I'll add a touch of cinnamon to the batter next time though."

"The only thing we did differently was split the recipe in half, and we weren't a fan. We usually just use Bisquick, but we're out. I'll be trying a different recipe next time. This seemed too cakey? I don't know the right term, but my husband and I would have rather just used Bisquick I think. Always fun to try new recipes though. Thanks"

"This recipe made the waffles flaky and were the perfect thickness. I added a peachy sweetness to it by blending: teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream, brown sugar and white sugar. Once all the ingredients were mixed, I added that wonderful blend and we didn't even need syrup. My boyfriend loved the entire recipe. Thanks for sharing such a great waffle recipe!"

"These were delicious and filled the kitchen with the best aroma ever of home made waffles. I'm used to making waffles from a box but these were pretty easy to whip together. The batter, mine atleast, was a bit thicker than i expected but i went with it because it looked and smelled delicious. I mixed in two tbsp of milk in the last half of the batter for anyone who preferred fluffier waffles. I recommend doubling the recipe to get more full formed waffles out of your waffle iron (most of mine came short)."

Ate 2 and declared them the best ever. So much for freezing the extra. I make extra of waffles and pancakes, let them dry on a rack and freeze. (the waffles, I toast, the pancakes, I microwave) This is perfect when the grandchildren are over and everyone wants something different, but I also use them for a quick breakfast in our motorhome travels."
