I TAUGHT A BELGIAN HOW TO MAKE BELGIAN WAFFLES
And honestly, didn’t really know what I was doing throughout it all. But eh, looked how great they turned out! Even better, Alison (the Belgian) loved them!
Last month, I moved into a new apartment (partly explains my online absence) and it's been awesome. My roommates are dope, the place is in good shape, the rent is cheap and it's a 10 minute bike ride to work. Except one thing. It doesn't have an oven! *Insert devasted emoji* So, how does yours truly compensate/remorse? With second hand electronic household appliances of course! My latest and to date best purchase was this waffle maker a Bulgarian women sold to me in the metro.
According to Alison, we made Liège Waffles. In other words, these waffles were small, sweet and simple – probably like the people of Liège. As for the recipe, it’s not much of a Dulce y Natural original. Instead I tweaked a thing or two from Sweet and Sour’s recipe. This was my first time making waffles and I treated every step as a study because next time I'm going to (try to) veganify these waffle babies. I won't you down Alison! In the meantime, I'll leave you with the recipe we used and the photos we took in Alison's beautiful garden.
Total Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 8 waffles
- 100 grams of butter
- 150 grams of white sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 200 mililiters of milk
- 25 grams of baking powder
- 250 grams of all purpose flour
- pinch of salt
- splash of vanilla
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and egg yolks on low heat for 2-3 minutes. Mix very quickly. If the yolks soldifiy, it isn’t ideal but it’s okay. In a mug, nuke the milk for 1 minute. Afterwards, pour the baking powder into the mug. Quickly pour it into the butter and egg mix. Mix well. In a medium sized bowl, mix the flour, sugar and salt. Pour in fluffy butter, egg, milk and baking powder concotion you have just made. Mix very well and add a splash of vanilla. Let the batter rest for 30-40 minutes. When ready, heat up your waffle maker and pour 2 spoons of batter to make one waffle. No need to grease up the waffle maker. Takes about 2 minutes to bake a pair of waffle, but it also depends on the temperature you set.
