If you follow me you know we do family dinner every Saturday or Sunday, which ever works out best for everyone’s schedules.
Last week for family dinner, we also celebrated Alex’s (second son) birthday. The birthday person always gets to pick their meal and dessert and Alex picked grilled chicken breasts and Belgian Waffles.
Right? I was confused at first too, but they go together amazingly well and I found a delicious recipe for Belgian Waffles that I couldn’t wait to share with you.
I found this on the Salty Marshmellow. Here’s the link if you prefer. https://thesaltymarshmallow.com/homemade-belgian-waffle-recipe/
- 2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- 3 Tablespoons Sugar
- 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 Large Eggs Separated
- 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
- 2 Cups Milk
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- Preheat your waffle iron, spray with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon.
- In a medium bowl beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
- In a separate medium bowl mix together the egg yolks, vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract.
- Add the egg yolk mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Fold in the egg whites.
- Pour the batter onto your hot waffle iron and cook according to manufacturer’s directions**
- Serve immediately with butter, syrup, powdered sugar or any other favorite toppings.
- **NOTE I have an Oster brand Belgian waffle iron. My iron takes about 3/4 cup of batter per waffle.
