These Belgian waffles are a tradition on Christmas morning, but a favorite year-round. Following the recipe as is, the waffles are great — substantial in size, yet light and airy. But this is a recipe you can vary in so many ways with different add-ins. We typically have blueberries on-hand to add to the batter, and sliced strawberries and bananas on the table. Adding shredded apple to the batter is also an option. A sprinkle of powdered sugar before serving… always a hit with the kids!
1.Preheat your Belgian waffle iron.
2.Whisk eggs in bowl until thick.
3.Beat in milk, melted butter and vanilla.
4.Combine dry ingredients in a second bowl. Sift into egg mixture and beat well, but do not over-mix.
5.Once the indicator light on your waffler has gone off, pour batter evenly into the bottom grid, but not all the way to the edges.
6.Bake until golden brown (about 90 seconds). Remove waffles with fork.
7.Serve with optional toppings and warmed maple syrup.
