Belgian waffles

In everything that concerns sweets, the Belgians can be trusted 100%. They proved it with their chocolate a long time ago. But they have another national delicacy – these are Belgian waffles, which, in turn, are divided into two types: Brussels and Liege.

Brussels Waffles

Brussels waffles are rectangular in shape, airy and soft. They are served warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar, whipped cream, chocolate or fruit. The most classic option is with strawberries or bananas. 

To make Brussels waffles, you will need:

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted and lightly cooled
  • two glasses of milk
  • two and a half cups of flour
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • one pack of dry yeast
  • vanilla

How to cook Brussels Waffles:

  1. Separate the whites from the yolks.
  2. Mix flour, sugar, salt and yeast.
  3. Heat the milk, add it to the flour, and pour the melted butter and egg yolks into it. Mix everything well.
  4. Beat the whites until a firm foam is formed and add to the dough.
  5. Cover and let stand for 45 minutes.
  6. Bake the Belgian waffles for about 3 minutes in a waffle iron.
