Want more waffles all the time like we do? Belgian waffles are similar to classic waffles, except that they have deeper pockets due to being made in a Belgian Waffle Maker. Belgian waffles are also very light and airy inside. Traditionally this was due to them being made with yeast. Generally today they are made with baking powder, like in my recipe. In order to keep the waffles light, we beat the egg whites separately from the yolks, then, fold them into the batter at the end.
In the picture below you can see how simple it is to make your Belgian waffle batter. First, you will whisk together your dry ingredients. Then, separate your egg whites from the yolks example in the video right above our recipe card. Mix all of your wet ingredients except for the egg whites together and then combine them with the dry ingredients.
Beat your egg whites in their bowl until stiff peaks form. Then, use a spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter. These waffles make a hearty breakfast on their own, but, they are also great with savory sides like scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, or your favorite bacon! First, if you want to save some of these waffles for later I recommend only refrigerating them for a couple of days. Otherwise, you can freeze them in freezer safe bags for a few weeks. You will want to reheat them in the oven instead of the microwave to keep them nice and crispy!
I recommend placing them right on the oven rack at degrees for about ten minutes. If you love this breakfast recipe, try these too:. Her passion for cooking and baking began over a decade ago, and she specializes in easy recipes with big flavor that the whole family will love!

I think it sounds like your waffle iron runs overly hot. And I would definitely recommend trying it with buttermilk if you can- the result you get with vinegar is ok but not quite as good to be honest!
Thank you for the feedback! Wow Gary! What works for one may not work for another…. Good luck with your old basic recipe! My batter was runny, was it supposed to be?
However, we did love the waffle and will be making it again…. Hi Sheila! Did you happen to take a look at the video just above the recipe card? That should give you a good idea of what the batter should look like. Glad you enjoyed! This recipe is easy to put together and the leftovers freeze well.
They were crazy good! Tried making the waffles again with a new waffle iron. My old waffle iron was failing and overheated the waffles, causing almost burnt sections on the waffles. My new iron is adjustable. Adding more baking powder helped, but I should have added more flour too. I should have reread my initial assessment and adjusted the ingredients. Looking at the video, I see that my batter was clearly too runny in comparison.
Maybe next time. I think you can probably get a pretty good idea of what the batter is meant to look like if you watch the video. These were awesome! I made them today for Easter brunch with homemade strawberry topping and they were a hit!
