These Homemade Belgian Waffles are perfect for a weekend breakfast. Of course, you may dress them up with berries and special syrups, but we enjoy them with some butter and maple syrup. Simple, tender, and delicious!

Making Belgian Waffles using Cuisinart Double Decker Waffle Maker

This past Christmas I gifted my husband with a Cuisinart Double Decker Waffle Maker, as our old one had kicked the bucket a few months before. When I was shopping for waffle makers, I debated the single model, since it was less expensive. But then I dreamed about preparing waffles for our entire family in just a short amount of time, and decided to go for the double. I’m glad I did. It’s wonderful!

Using the Cuisinart Double Waffle Maker for a Family Breakfast

Plus, my husband likes this waffle maker so much, he jumps in and helps with breakfast by cooking the waffles–sometimes with the help of our grandsons. They love it, and so do I!

I haven’t exactly timed how fast he can cook the waffles, but I know that a double recipe of waffles is done in the same amount of time that it takes me to prepare the bacon and eggs. So, that’s saying quite a bit!

Belgian waffles are thicker than American waffles, with bigger and deeper pockets to hold more butter and syrup. Often, they are circular in size. The batter is light and airy using yeast and/or egg whites. Sometimes, they include pearl sugar for Liège waffles.

Belgian Waffles with Mixed Berries and Berry Syrup

My husband and I enjoy these Belgian waffles with just a little butter and maple syrup, but you may dress them up with mixed berries and a fruit syrup, if you want. Get really fancy, and add a dab of sour cream or whipped topping, just because you can!

Ingredients for Homemade Belgian Waffles

(See the full recipe at the bottom of this post.)

  • all-purpose flour
  • granulated sugar
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • large eggs, separated
  • whole milk
  • vegetable oi
  • vanilla extract
  • butter and maple syrup for serving

Instructions for Making This Recipe

Gather the ingredients so you have everything close at hand on the counter or table. Preheat oven to 250°F.

Carefully, divide the egg yolks and whites, making sure not to get any yolk in the whites. Place the whites in a large mixing bowl, and the yolks in another bowl. Whisk the egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff.

Prepare the Batter

Mix Dry Ingredients Together in a Medium Batter Bowl

In a medium batter bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Form a hole in the center with a spoon.

Using a glass measuring dish, combine the egg yolks, whole milk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract. Mix to incorporate.

Add liquids to the center of the dry ingredients, and mix with a fork or spatula just until blended.

Carefully fold in stiffly beaten egg whites with a rubber spatula. Do not overmix. Your batter should now be light and airy.

Pour batter in a preheated waffle baker, and cook as directed by the appliance instructions. This recipe will make six 9-inch waffles.

Place cooked waffles on a baking sheet and keep warm in preheated oven until ready to serve.

Serving Suggestions

Serve Belgian Waffles with butter and your favorite maple syrup. I like pairing waffles with thick sliced bacon or sausage links and scrambled eggs. A whole Belgian waffle will cover most of a dinner plate, but you may easily halve or quarter them for easier serving, if desired. These waffles are delicious for a breakfast or brunch, or even for supper.
