Belgian Waffles

  • Author: Handy Chef
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


These waffles are much lighter, less dense than your average Belgian Waffle. As with most dishes that require regular milk, I opt out and use almond milk whether that be unsweetened for savory dishes or plain for sweet dishes.



2 cups cake flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½  teaspoon salt

4 large eggs, separated

2 tablespoons sugar

½  teaspoon vanilla extract

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

2 cups milk (I use almond milk)

non-stick cooking spray


  1. Using an electric mixer, whip the egg whites until they reach soft peaks form.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, and sugar. Whisk until yolks are pale yellow in color. Add vanilla and stir.
  3. Slowly add melted butter, use the tempering method for this step then slowly whisk in milk, set aside.
  4. Prepare dry ingredients in another bowl. Slowly add egg mixture to dry ingredients and stir until everything is incorporated but not for too long.
  5. Gently Fold in egg whites.

  6. Transfer batter to waffle iron and cook until waffles are golden brown.
