The perfect Belgian waffle
Updated: Jan 21, 2021
Weekend mornings are just the best. Not having to rush up from bed, being able to take it easy and having the time to make something special for breakfast, and actually enjoying it.
A while back I found a Belgian waffle iron on offer and could't resist the temptation. Waffles are quite common here in Sweden, but a less fluffy version, so Belgian waffle is more of a treat. Whether you prefer sugar and fresh strawberries, maple syrup or nutella as topping, there is no doubt you'll have the treat you deserve to start your day.
Developing new recipes is always fun, but sometimes you just find that perfect recipe out there which is exactly what you need. This is one such case, and the perfect recipe is by @jessicalovesbutter. No weird ingredients, just things you find in your kitchen. My only tips: don't miss separating the eggs and beating the egg whites. That's what makes your waffle fluffy, so you really want to make sure you beat those egg whites properly!

For 8 waffles:
125 gr flour
35 gr cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
30 gr melted butter
2,5 dl milk
1 tsp vanilla extract (or vanilla sugar)
Preheat your waffle iron or turn on the oven if you are using silicone molds. Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
In a bowl, slightly beat the egg yolk with a whisk, then stir in the milk, vanilla and butter. Pour in the dry ingredients and stir until smooth.
Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks (I mean really stiff white peaks), then carefully fold them into the batter. Cook the waffles according to the waffle maker instructions and serve them immediately for best result.
