Although Belgian Waffles are not a classic British dessert, we have posted this delicious Belgian Waffle Recipe for this years International Waffle Day (25th March 2021). The difference between a standard waffle and a Belgian waffle is that the Belgian version is much thicker and are better suited to a waffle iron.
125g/4½oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
150ml/¼ pint whole milk
2 free-range eggs, separated
40g/1½oz unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
Topping of your choice, we have chosen a caramel sauce with Yorvale Caramel Honeycomb ice cream
1. Preheat your Belgian waffle iron on the hob over a medium heat; if using an electric waffle maker, heat according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can make these waffles with a standard waffle iron, but the mixture will make more (thinner) waffles.
2. Sift the flour, baking powder, caster sugar and a pinch of salt into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle.
3. In a jug, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, melted butter and vanilla until smooth. Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth and thoroughly combined.
4. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until they hold firm, but not stiff, peaks. Using a large spoon, fold the egg whites into the batter mixture until just combined but do not over-mix.
5. Spoon the batter into the waffle iron – how much you need will depend on the size of your iron or machine – and cook on the hob for 2–3 minutes on each side until golden and well risen, or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Keep warm while you cook the remaining waffles.
6. Serve warm with a drizzle of caramel and a scoop of Yorvale Caramel Honeycomb ice cream
