Belgian Waffles from Scratch

For many of us, waffles are not strictly food for breakfast. We like it for snacks and, sometimes, dinner.

A fantastic homemade Belgian waffle that's crispy on the outside and moist inside really hits the spot. This recipe for classic waffles by Rebecca Brand is just that. Pay special attention to how she mixes wet and dry ingredients using 1 bowl. It's pretty cool. The video is included below.

Ingredients for the waffles:
  • 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup milk

Ingredients for the berries topping:
  • 1 bag frozen mixed berries

Ingredients for the sweetened whipped cream:
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioner's or powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


Preheat your waffle maker.

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Mix well.

To mix the wet and dry ingredients, try using Rebecca's technique from the video. Or just use your own method. Essentially, you want to add eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and milk to the bowl. Mix the ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix. You want clumps of flour here and there to make your waffles fluffy.

Prepare your preheated waffle maker by spraying non-stick cooking oil.

Pour batter into waffle maker. Let it cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. Some waffle makers have an auto off switch when waffle is cooked. Rebecca's video below doesn't seem to have that setting.

While your waffle is cooking, and hopefully your waffle maker has an auto-off setting, melt frozen berries in a sauce pan on hot setting. Mix it until berries are falling apart into a sauce. Then remove from heat and set aside.

Make the sweetened whipped cream by placing heavy cream in a bowl. Whip it on high using an electric mixer. Once cream begins to get thicker, add sugar and vanilla extract.

Remove cooked waffles from waffle maker and serve with topping.

  1. I made this recipe, as written but it did not seem to have enough flour.
