Description

Buttermilk Belgian Waffles.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 whole Eggs, Separated
  • 1-¾ cup Buttermilk (See Note)
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, Melted

Preparation

Note: If you don’t have buttermilk in the house, you can make some by mixing the same amount of milk and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking, powder, granulated sugar, and salt in a large bowl.

In a small bowl beat the egg yolks. Add to the buttermilk and melted butter and beat.

In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry (it should form peaks and hold their shape.)

Add the buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients, whisk until smooth. Then add the egg whites in and fold them in.

Preheat your waffle maker to 230ºF to 240ºF. Put some of the batter in the machine (follow directions for the waffle maker that you have). Butter and put on any toppings that you want on it (strawberries, syrup, fruit, etc.).

BEST BELGIAN WAFFLES EVER. I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect belgian waffle recipe and this is it. The waffles are crispy and buttery on the outside, tender and fluffy on the inside. The batter was very thick so I added about 1/3 cup more buttermilk to make the batter more scoopable.

Delicious!! This recipe is replacing my original! Only change I made was adding a teaspoon of vanilla. I also used the buttermilk substitute and results were fabulous!

These were delicious! We followed the recipe exactly and used the milk/lemon juice trick and the waffles were fantastic.

I used 8 tbsp. of unsalted butter because measuring sometimes annoys me. I also added about half a capful of vanilla extract because the raw batter tasted pretty bland to me and I thought vanilla would perk it up a bit. The results were outstanding. Please do not skimp out and use the vinegar/milk trick in place of buttermilk or even that powdered stuff. There is no substitution for real cultured buttermilk. It’s easier and cheaper than you think to make it and lasts an extremely long time in the fridge. That being said, this recipe is amazing. No idea how it tastes if one was to actually follow the recipe to the letter though but I’m sure the results wouldn’t be too different. Served with macerated strawberries, sweet cream butter, and maple syrup it won over a waffle hater this morning.

Easy and super delicious! Came out crispy as long as I didn’t spray my nonstick waffle iron! The boys ate them up and I loved them. Will be my new go to recipe for waffles!
