Belgian Waffles, are one of my all time favorite breakfast foods! We love Brinner in our house, so much so that we eat it every Monday – and we love waffles. So tonight it only seemed fitting to make these Belgian Waffles, which according to my husband are the best. Just the other day we had the what makes it a “Belgian Waffle” debate, the shape or the recipe? So I did a little reading, and it is in fact the size and waffle grid that attribute to it’s name, although a lighter, airy batter is another factor.
Whether you use a pancake/waffle mix or you make them from scratch, if you like waffles you should give this recipe a try, it’s pretty tasty. Go mix yourself up a batch and top it with butter, maple syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit or even ice cream… whatever your heart desires; enjoy!
