Belgian waffles are always a special breakfast at our house. Those deep pockets in the waffles are the best for capturing all that syrup or butter or whipped cream – so good!

Today’s recipe for Belgian waffles makes perfectly cooked waffles every time. Crispy and light brown on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.

We love to have a bunch of toppings on the side so you can personalize your waffle. Some of the toppings we’ve done are berries, syrup, whipped cream, melted butter, Nutella, jam, honey, bananas, and peanut butter.

You could even turn these into dessert waffles and top them with your favorite ice cream. Now that sounds like the making of a fun party!

How to Make Belgian Waffles

This is such a yummy homemade recipe. Much better than anything you’ll get in a box. You’ll have warm fluffy homemade Belgian waffles in under 30 minutes.

DRY INGREDIENTS. Sift all your dry ingredients together in a large bowl and set it aside.

WET INGREDIENTS. Take your eggs and separate the egg whites and yolks from each other in two different bowls. Whisk or beat the egg whites until peaks form.

MIX. To your egg yolks, add the milk, oil, and vanilla and stir them together. Add the egg yolk mixture to your dry ingredients and mix until it’s well combined. Then softly fold in the egg whites. This will make your waffles light as a feather and melt in your mouth delicious!!

COOK. Pour the batter in batches on a waffle iron and cook for 5-10 minutes. Serve with all your favorite toppings!

WAFFLE TOPPINGS.  This will obviously vary on preference, but some of our favorite waffle toppings include:

Freezing + Reheating

FREEZE.  Go ahead and double this recipe and freeze the extras for later. Place the waffles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Freeze until frozen (about 2 hours).

Once the waffles are completely frozen put them in an airtight freezer safe container. The waffles will stay good for up to 4 months.

REHEAT.  To reheat refrigerated or frozen waffles preheat oven or toaster oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 10-15 minutes or until hot. You can also heat them up in a toaster or the microwave.
