Belgian Waffle Recipe – Crisp it Up!

We’ve got another Belgian waffle recipe perfect for a weekend morning! These Belgian waffles are not unlike the homemade belgian waffles we posted last year. However, this time we’re aiming for the crisp factor.

Crispy waffles stand up better to stacking, slathering with syrup or even adding a scoop of ice cream. Instead of eating these for breakfast, they’re also great as a dessert waffle.

What’s the Secret to Crispy Waffles?

The secret ingredient is cornstarch! You’ll get a crunchy exterior with a soft billowy interior.

Although we make these with gluten-free flour, regular flour will work perfectly. Gone are the days when we used to have to mix our own gluten free flour – thanks to Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

To impart a similar tang to buttermilk, we use goat milk products. But you can substitute regular milk and yogurt instead if you prefer.

Pour the mixture into the waffle maker and wait until you see bubbles breaking on the surface before closing the lid.

Freeze Waffles for Later

If you’re making them to freeze, pop them onto a rack to cool, then wrap well and store.

Toppings for Belgian Waffles

Personally, I’m happy to add a pat of butter and call it a day. But that would be boring!

So to dress them up, in addition to a pat of butter, we top them with off with whatever fresh fruit we have on hand: bananas, strawberries, blueberries. A few walnuts adds additional crunch.
