Belgian waffles

The Husband loves a waffle, and so do my kids. Breakfasts and puddings, at home and on camping trips. They're very tasty indeed.

I have a lovely friend who lives in Belgium and she kindly sent me her grandma's waffle recipe. I've adapted it slightly because hers makes about 100 and even we cannot eat that many.

Belgian waffles

Makes about 12 waffles

In one bowl:
250g plain flour
175g caster sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In another bowl:
190g butter, melted

In a jug:
125ml milk
2 egg yolks, beaten together

In a third bowl:
2 egg whites, beaten until stiff

Gradually incorporate the dry ingredients with the milk/egg mixture and the melted butter. Once they are mixed, fold in the stiff egg whites. Leave the batter for at least an hour.

Lightly grease your waffle iron. Put 1-2 tbsp batter on each plate (will spread out itself). Cook for 3 minutes.

Serve with cream or ice cream, bananas or strawberries, chocolate sauce, syrup, or caramel, or a mixture, or plain!
