I’ve been looking for a good belgian waffle recipe for a long time. I mean, almost all of the ones I tried were good but they were never as good as I knew they could be. A perfect waffle is crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, but it’s so easy for them to become cakey or heavy.
Finally, I’ve found an excellent one! Not a light recipe, but perfect for an occasional treat. These are awesome served with warmed maple syrup or topped with sliced fresh berries.

- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup cake flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 4 large eggs, separated
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted
Combine flour, leaveners, salt and sugar and whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Whisk in melted butter.
Beat egg whites in another bowl to stiff peaks, then fold into batter, half at a time.
At first, it will seem very lumpy, but keep folding and it will smooth out.
Pour into waffle iron and bake until golden brown.
Serve hot with fresh sliced berries or warmed syrup.
