The problem with real Belgian waffles is that they are made from a yeast recipe that takes a few hours. So instead of looking for Belgian waffle recipes that don’t resemble the original AT ALL, I ended up completely altering the recipe but came out with a quick made Belgian waffle that really closely resembles a yeast made version. Try it; I swear it is REALLY good.
Delicious and Easy Belgian Waffle Recipe
- 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat
- 1 1/2 cups white flour
- 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon (optional, but highly recommended!!!)
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt mixed with 1 tsp corn starch (substitute sour cream if desired)
- 1/2 package of Hershey’s cinnamon chips (optional)
- In a large bowl combine the flour, wheat, baking powder, salt and cinnamon, and blend with a whisk.
- In a stand mixer, mix the sugar and butter together till nice and fluffy.
- Add one egg in at a time beating to combine between each addition of an egg.
- Add the vanilla, combine, add the yogurt premixed with the cornstarch. Stir till combined.
- Slowly add the flour to the mixer. Don’t over mix, just till combined. Add the 1/2 bag cinnamon chips.
- Cook on a hot waffle iron, using a quick spray of olive oil before each waffle.
- Times will vary, but even with your iron set on high to get it nice and crispy on the outside, each waffle may take about 5 minutes.
- Top with desired toppings, such as Nutella, whipped cream, and fresh fruit.
