Light and Fluffy – Simple Belgian Waffle Recipe

Is there anything better than a light, but just crispy enough, fluffy Belgian waffle topped with syrup and paired with the weekend? I am going to vote no. Normally, starting my morning off with a sugary breakfast is a BIG NO – but, everyone in a while ya gotta indulge and this easy Belgian Waffle recipe is the perfect balance of indulgence. Get ready for your weekend brunch and enjoy this simple recipe for a classic breakfast favorite. 

Ingredients (Recipe makes about 4 large Belgian Waffles)

 
Refrigerated
  • 1 Serving of a Large Egg (using Egg Whites) about 3 TBSP
Baking & Spices
  • 1 cups All purpose flour (I use almond flour to cut on the gluten)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 cups Granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
 
Dairy
  • 1/2 cup Butter, salted
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I opt for a coconut almond milk blend)

How to Make:

  1. In a bowl or mixer, quickly whisk together the flour, sugar, and baking powder.
  2. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg whites.
  3. Add the milk, butter, and vanilla to the egg whites. Mix well until combined.
  4. Stir the egg white and milk mixture into the flour mixture
  5. Using an electric mixer  beat the badder until it forms a thicker consistency (usually 2-3 minutes on a low speed).
  6.  Do not over mix. Let batter rest while you preheat the waffle iron.
  7. Cook waffles in heated waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  8. Once waffles are golden brown – serve with your favorite toppings and syrup – In my house we top our waffles with strawberries (I highly recommend!)

This is not your “traditional way” of making Belgian waffles, but I find the consistency, flavor and fluffiness to still be in full effect – without the extra added calories or gluten. Now, I’m ready to pour myself a big cup of coffee (and maybe a mimosa) and make all my brunch dreams come true with this easy recipe.
