Homemade Belgian Waffles


Whenever people asked me what my favorite thing about Belgium is, I always say the food! These Homemade Belgian Waffles are inspired by a rainy few days I spent in this little European country a few years ago. Because it rained so much while we were there, we took comfort in finding little eateries like the cozy House of waffles in the medieval city of Bruges.

So how do Belgian waffles differ from regular waffles? Well, to start with they are thicker because they are made in waffle irons that have deeper ridges. The batter they use in Belgium also contains a leavening agent or egg whites so they tend to be lighter than the traditional waffles we are used to. The secret to light waffles in my recipe is to use baking powder and to beat the egg whites separately.

To make Homemade Belgian Waffles, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Homemade Belgian Waffles


Heat a waffle iron

Lightly spray a waffle iron with non stick cooking spray and preheat.


Mix dry ingredients together

Mix 2 ¼ cups of flour, a tablespoon of baking powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar, ½ a teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon together in a large bowl.


Beat egg whites

In a separate bowl beat the whites of two eggs together with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.


Whisk remaining ingredients

In another bowl, whisk the yolks of two eggs, ½ a cup of vegetable oil, 2 cups of milk, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract together.


Combine dry ingredients with the egg yolk mixture

Pour the egg yolk mixture into the bowl which contains the dry ingredients and mix well.


Fold in the egg whites

Fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.



Pour batter onto the hot waffle iron. Cook the waffles according to the waffle iron manufacturer's directions.



Serve hot with your favorite toppings on the side. I love to serve mine with butter, syrup, berries and powdered sugar.

Liked the savory veggie waffles more but I guess It's cause I don't eat too much sweets, these weren't awful but too sugary.

Whoa great idea and so yummy with hot coffee in the morning, very filling breakfast.

Replace the milk with almond milk or coconut milk for more flavor.

Chocolate waffles are usually my favorite with a bunch of syrup and powdered sugar so I wasn't sure I'd like these plain ones with mixed fruit but i wanted to try them out cause they are Belgian like my hubby, no regrets! They are fluffy and soft the texture is just perfect.

The cinnamon is actually kinda strong in these but I liked them a lot.
