Today was a rainy day in Antwerp, typical Belgian weather to eat a Belgian creation. What better way to end the day with something sweet yet invitingly cozy. A good friend of mine had offered a great deal of help to me and I wanted to offer something that I had put thought to but would not take so much time.
The foodie in me ended up food.com and withe the ingredients I had in the pantry waffles it was.
Recipe by Marie on food.co http://www.food.com/recipe/the-bestest-belgian-waffles-63071
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 4teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4cup sugar
- 2eggs, separated
- 1⁄2cup oil; I used vegetable oil
- 2 cups milk
Since I did not have the spray for the waffle machine, I brushed a little olive oil on the trays before baking to avoid any burns or being stuck in the tray.
Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Separate the eggs.
In small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.
Mix together the egg yolks, milk and oil and stir slightly.
Add to dry ingredients and mix well.
Fold in beaten egg whites.
Cook time was between 3 to 5 minutes until they turn golden brown
One hour later, the softest waffles were being enjoyed with syrup and honey.
PS: Do not be afraid if some waffles come out on “wrong opposite side of the tray”. They can still be removed.
If you are ever visiting Belgium please do try one of the waffles from the many shops around the cities; they have delicious and tempting toppings from chocolate creams, to strawberries to maple syrup to berries
