There’s nothing like a good Belgian waffles and as it turns out, they’re super easy to make from home. And guess what, yes, I love to cook. Food is one of my love languages, and that entails eating as well as making sure my loved ones are well fed.
I take pride in making a dish that I know tastes good and that others appreciate. So, when my sister-in-law gave me a Belgian Waffle maker for Christmas, I immediately began envisioning me at the kitchen counter whipping up a batch of these fresh, fluffy, delicious breakfast cakes for my wife and daughter. Why go to a restaurant and pay $10 or more when you can make Belgian Waffles from home that are just as good.
Becoming an Expert Belgian Waffle Maker Has Never Been Easier
The first thing that impressed me about our new Bella Rotating Belgian Waffle maker is how easy it is to make professional looking and tasty Belgian Waffles. Granted, the batter I purchased provides a dummy-proof recipe, but so far I’ve made Belgian Waffles now three times and the just keep getting better.
Three Belgian Waffles
- 1 cup of mix
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil a
- ¾ cup of water.
For six waffles, essentially double the above recipe. If you choose, you can add fresh fruit such as blueberries or strawberries to the batter.
Just mix while your Bella Belgian Waffle maker heats up. When the green light “Ready” indicator turns on, it’s time to coat the top and bottom pans with non-stick cooking spray and pour batter to fill all four trays. Close the top, lock the handle and wait for the green light indicator to turn back on. Once it does, rotate the waffle maker to cook the bottom portion.
After cooking about 3 minutes per side, your Belgian Waffle should be done. Open it to make sure it’s cooked to your liking. The Bella Belgian Waffle maker provides different settings to cook your Belgian Waffle longer (darker) or shorter (lighter). Be sure to use a plastic spatula to remove your Belgian Waffle to a plate. Just remember if you are using fruit in your Belgian Waffle to make sure there is enough batter to allow the waffle to fully form (this also makes cleaning your Bella Belgian Waffle Maker more complicated.
Add butter, syrup (I prefer sugar-free) and even dust with powdered sugar If you’d like.
