Belgium Waffels

My recipe was Belgium Waffles. The recipe is below. A photo is above.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar - all the dry ingredients - together in a large mixing bowl.

  • 2Take a separate bowl and whisk together the egg yolks, milk and oil.

    • 3Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the liquid ingredients into it. Use a large spoon or mixer to mix the wet and dry ingredients just until you get a moist mixture (stop when the dry ingredients are moistened).

    • 4Take a small bowl and beat the egg whites until stiff (I would use mixer). Now take the egg whites and gently fold them into the batter, mix a little but not too much since you will destroy the delicate egg whites that make this waffle recipe so fluffy.

    • 5Pour the waffle batter into a Belgian Waffle maker iron (I used about 1/2 cup). A good sign that the waffles are done is when the steam stops coming out of the waffle maker.

Thank you :)
