Belgium Waffles-yum


I finally located my Belgium waffle maker after it was missing for many years. I almost ditched it for a new one, but cleaned it up and started using it again. I had a whole grain mix that just called for adding liquids which was fine, but nothing compares to a plump ‘real’ Belgium waffle:

You just don’t want to do this:

Which I did on the fourth one! What a mess. I forget that the tablespoon of baking powder will really make them rise and overflow. Plus I didn’ t want to make a fifth one!

Here’s the recipe from the Food Network site:

Belgium Waffles
2 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
Nonstick vegetable spray for coating waffle iron
Confectioners' sugar
Fresh berries
Whipped cream, recipe follows
Ice cream, optional

If you don't have Buttermilk in the house, here's what you can do:
Milk (just under one cup)
1 Tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice-let sit 5 minutes

Here's my doll Olivia with a new mask on:

And the remnants of the much talked about snow:

  1. Oh, you did get some snow! We left early Sat. morning and just got home a few hours ago, so I did not even know who got the snow. I only knew it was not us. 🙂

    I had a waffle just like that for breakfast today! It was on a buffet where you can make your own waffle. I am sure they use some kind of mix. DH does not eat them, so I don’t make them at home, but every once in a while I like one with strawberries on top. Now what are the odds that we would both have one of these waffles today? LOL.

  2. That really is a coincidence Zoey! I don’t know how anyone could not eat a waffle once in a while. I think I’ll make some dessert ones next.
    The snow didn’t last past Sunday morning and now we’ve had a hard freeze, so buy to the flowers.
