I’ve been looking for a good belgian waffle recipe for a long time. I mean, almost all of the ones I tried were good but they were never as good as I knew they could be. A perfect waffle is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, but it’s so easy for them to become cakey or heavy.
Finally, I’ve found an excellent one! Not a light recipe, but perfect for an occasional treat. These are awesome served with warmed maple syrup or topped with sliced fresh berries.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cake flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 4 large eggs separated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsalted butter melted
- Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.
- Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.
- At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.
- Pour into waffle iron and bake until golden brown.
- Serve hot with fresh sliced berries or warmed syrup.
