Real Belgian Waffles

I stumbled upon this recipe when looking for a waffle recipe to use that didn’t involve buttermilk. I was intrigued by the fact that these were supposed to be the real deal of Belgian waffles.

It has since become one of our favorite waffle recipes. When I say I’m making waffles, my kids now have to ask what kind and these are referred to as “the really good ones”.

What’s not to love? They involve more butter and more sugar than any other waffle recipe I’ve used.

They’re definitely a treat as far as breakfast foods are concerned. They are definitely sweeter than other waffles, so be careful what you put on them. Syrup may be a bit much. It’s not for my kids, of course. But I prefer them with some fresh fruit and whipped cream.
