Belgian Waffles


This recipe is from my mother-in-law, Donna Horton.

Isn't she cute??? I just love this lady!

We all go down to Newport Beach every summer and stay a week at a beach house. I cannot wait for the day during that week, that I wake up and I find out that Donna's sister, (Scott's aunt), Vicky Taylor, is up dishing out waffles.
Isn't Vicky cute too!
I gotta throw a picture in here of their sister Sandra, also...because I love her too!

Actually there are many more Moys..I just don't have pictures.
Awww, the Moy family...gotta love 'em.

Okay, back to waffles....
These waffles are so light and fluffy inside and slightly crispy and crunchy on the outside. The key is whipping the egg whites. These waffles are divine!

Belgian Waffles

4 eggs, room temp
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
3 Tbls butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt

Separate the yolks and the whites of the eggs.
Beat egg whites until stiff, light and fluffy. Set aside.





In a separate bowl, whisk yolks with cooled, melted butter. Combine flour and salt, add to yolks. Add milk. Fold in beaten egg whites gently to above. Add vanilla last. Brush or spray waffle iron with canola oil.


Donna got us one of these bad boys for our anniversary...it's awesome!
When hot, pour batter onto waffle maker and cook on high til lightly browned. Top with favorites...Fresh Strawberries, whipped cream, warm syrup and butter.

This is how the kids like them.
You can see how thick they are...
This is how I like them.

Tina, you crack me up! That was taken a few weeks back when I made the waffles the first time for the blog. I didn't have whipped cream or strawberries so I waited to post it until after I got pictures of that.

Last night Bart and I were watching the Food Network and they featured Waffles...

If you find an old Waffle Machine with flowers or decor on the top, BUY IT, they are worth a fortune!
