These fluffy buttermilk Belgian waffles are super easy to make and no separating eggs required! Crispy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside, just the ultimate breakfast or dinner option! Enjoy these with syrup, butter, and a cup of coffee or a cold glass of milk.
My biggest tips for the perfect waffles are to add about 1 cup or more to the waffle iron and also to turn the iron once you’ve prepared the batter. In the past, I didn’t add enough waffle batter and it resulted in wonky edges and thin waffles. Also, I would turn the waffle iron too early and by the time I would add the batter, the waffle iron was way too hot resulting in dry waffles. The best way to enjoy these is with maple syrup and lots of softened butter.
Transfer the waffles to a cooling rack for a minute before serving. If you transfer the waffles to your plate straight from the waffle iron, the steam can get trapped underneath them resulting in soggy waffles.
Because this recipe requires buttermilk, try to make other recipes that also require buttermilk. Like this delicious buttermilk cornbread for instance. The reason for this is because buttermilk expires quickly and you’ll want to use it up before it does.
What Do I Serve These With?
There are so many delicious toppings you can choose from. Whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, ice cream, and chocolate syrup. You can also serve these with fresh fruit and powdered sugar. My favorite way is just plain softened butter and syrup.
What’s the Difference Between Belgian Waffles and Regular Waffles?
Belgian waffles are super fluffy, big, and made with a leavening agent like baking powder. I used 1 tbsp of baking powder so they rise a lot. Some people use yeast to help them rise but I find using baking powder to be much easier.
Can I Add Chocolate Chips?
Yes, absolutely! You may certainly add chocolate chips or any type of berries to this batter.
How to Freeze
Once the waffles are fully cooked through, let them cool down completely at room temperature. Next, place them on a lined baking sheet and freeze for one hour. Once the waffles are completely frozen, place them in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
To reheat frozen waffles, place them on a lined baking sheet and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes. You can also use a toasted oven as well.
