True Belgian Waffles Recipe
It was on a visit to my husband's relatives in Belgium that I was given this waffle recipe. Back in the U.S., I served the waffles to his Belgian-born grandmother. She said they tasted just like home. Our grandkids love these waffles with any kind of topping: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, fried apples, powdered sugar or whipped topping.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Sliced fresh strawberries or syrup

In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder. In another bowl, lightly beat egg yolks. Add milk, butter and vanilla; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer's directions until golden brown. Serve with strawberries or syrup.
Yield: 10 waffles (about 4-1/2 inches).
