My Best Belgian Waffles

July 06

One of my first kitchen-related presents was a waffle maker from my aunt. It meant that my family and friends were subjected to sweet waffles every time there was a family gathering and dessert time rolled around. I’m glad to say I’ve passed on my love for waffle making to my son Noah, where it is a staple breakfast in our house every Saturday. These Belgian Waffles make a treat of a breakfast and can also be served as a dessert.

Method
  1. Mix the flour, caster sugar and baking powder in a large bowl.
  2. In a measuring jug, add the milk egg yolks, melted butter and vanilla extract.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft white peaks form.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk, egg yolks, melted butter & vanilla extract. Mix to make a smooth batter and then fold through the egg whites.
  5. Transfer a ladleful of the batter to the waffle maker and cook for 3–4 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Add yoghurt, berries & granola, as much or as little as you wish.
