Parents — if you are reading this article, you need to know that it will have its consequences. First, you will see the recipe. Then, you will bring it to life. Next, you will serve it to your children. Before you realize it, you will make your eighth batch of Belgian waffles. Are you ready for such a risk?

When I bought the waffle maker, I knew there would be severe consequences. However, it quickly turned out that it wasn't as bad as I had imagined. The kids ate the waffles with enjoyment but without much enthusiasm. They didn't ask for seconds and forgot about the appliance. The second attempt happened when I discovered the recipe for Belgian waffles. The reaction? The very next day, I got a request for a repeat. And the next day, too. And again. I warned you — there's no joking with this recipe!

What are Belgian waffles? Another name for them is Brussels waffles (quite logical, proper?) or Liege waffles, referring to the city in eastern Belgium where they supposedly originated. Enough about semantics; let's talk about taste. The reviews of these treats are pretty unanimous, and the adjectives used to describe them are consistent: delicious, addictive, fluffy. This is thanks, among other things, to yeast and a relatively large amount of melted butter.

Preparing Belgian waffles is not tricky; you can handle it without the slightest problem. What should you remember? Perhaps only to embrace the responsibility and acknowledge that man does not live by waffles alone...

Homemade belgian waffles


  • 7 fl oz milk
  • 10 oz flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp instant yeast
  • 3 oz butter
  • 6 fl oz carbonated water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Separate the egg yolks and whites. Set the whites aside for now, and mix the yolks with slightly warmed milk, sugar, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract.
  2. Add flour mixed with yeast and melted but cooled butter to this mixture.
  3. Cover the prepared mixture with a clean cloth and let it rise for 15 minutes. Then, add the egg whites whipped to stiff peaks. Combine everything using a spoon.
  4. Let the dough rest for another 20 minutes.
  5. After this, you can start pouring the batter into the waffle maker. Serve with your favorite toppings. In my case, it's our latest homemade hit, which is red currant jam.
