Waffles are definitely one of the most requested breakfast foods at our house. I would say 9 times out of ten if I ask what the guys would like for breakfast, it is waffles.

Easy Belgian Waffles with fresh blueberries and butter

I love to make a double batch of homemade waffles and have them to enjoy throughout the week. No matter how you top them, they are delicious.

If you are partial to pancakes over waffles, you should give this pancake recipe a try!

Belgian Waffles are known for being light and crisp with deep indentations that are wonderful for filling with maple syrup. Belgian Waffles can be made with yeast or beaten egg whites to achieve the light and crisp texture. 

My recipe skips the yeast and I find this recipe to be just as light and fluffy rather I beat the egg whites or not. Just don’t over mix the batter.

The difference between Belgian Waffles and American Waffles are the thickness of the waffles. Belgian Waffles are thicker with deeper indentations, where American waffles are thinner with smaller indentations. 

How to Make Belgian Waffles:

  • Preheat Belgian Waffle Iron.
  • Add all purpose flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, & salt to a mixing bowl and whisk until combined. 
  • Add milk, eggs, and vegetable oil and whisk together just until combined. 
  • Do not over mix, a few lumps are fine.
  • Pour waffle batter into waffle iron and cook until crisp.
  • Remove to a wire rack until ready to serve.
  • Top with butter and your favorite maple syrup or fresh berries and whipped cream.

This is my basic Belgian Waffle recipe, a few of my other favorites are Whole Grain Waffles, Buttermilk-Oat Waffles, and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Waffles.

These Stuffed Waffles are crazy good with sausage and cheese! My Brown Sugar Cinnamon Waffles are more American style but I plan to test them out soon in the Belgian Waffle Iron.

This is a great waffle iron if you are in the market for one. The model that I have has been discontinued, but I love the bakers that make 2 waffles at once. So quick and easy!

How to Store Waffles:

I like to cool waffles on a wire rack so that they don’t sweat. When they have reached room temperature, I place them in a single layer inside a plastic zip top bag. I keep them in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Can You Freeze Waffles?

You can freeze waffles. Place cooled waffles in a zip top freezer bag in a single layer. They will keep up to 3 months. Waffles can be thawed in the refrigerator or reheated from frozen in a preheated 300° oven or toaster oven for about 15 minutes or until heated through.

  1. There is just nothing like a big ‘ol belgian waffle for a weekend breakfast! I loved your suggestion to add chocolate chips and whipped cream as potential toppings – that made it even more perfect.

  2. I have a waffle maker that has been sitting new and unused in the box in the basement for a couple years.Your recipe has inspired me to take it out this weekend!
