001In Brussels and Bruges, any street you walked down, you would find waffles sitting out of café windows with endless toppings of whip cream and chocolate and fruit sauces with the smell flowing right out of the kitchen and into you path so you’re craving waffles everywhere you go. The past two weekends, I have made waffles for breakfast here at home for two reasons; first, I miss Europe a lot! And second, waffles are delicious and I can’t stop thinking about the ones that I had in Belgium. To whip them up (literally) takes no time at all and you’ll be enjoying them for breakfast with this amazing recipe (see below).005 004 003 002Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sifted flower
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs separated
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cups cooking oil or melted shortening

Combine first 4 ingredients; sift into bowl. Beat egg yolks until think and lemon colored. Stir in milk and oil or shortening. Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture. Beat just until dry ingredients are moistened. Beat egg whites until they form soft peaks; carefully fold into batter. For each waffle, pour 1 1/3 cups batter into preheated 9-inch square waffle iron and spread over grid at once. Bake until done and lightly brown. Yield: 3-9 inch square waffles, 12 4-inch waffle squares.

  1. Actually it is pretty much in every big: wellknown town in Belgium :D


    • I bet they are, but Brussels and Bruges are the only two cities that I have been to in Belgium, so I can certainly vouch for those. But good to know :)
