How about you learn how to cook waffles by following Aunt Jemima’s waffle recipes?
Allow me to show you how to make fluffy Belgian waffles that will calm your cravings.
The origin of Belgian waffles
Compared to regular waffles, Belgian waffles have deeper pockets, larger squares, and have a lighter batter.
Originally, it was a norm to use yeast to leaven Belgian waffles, but you can use baking powder instead.
Belgian waffles are a breakfast meal with various toppings like the standard waffle.
There are varieties of Belgian waffles: the Brussels waffle, liege sugar waffle, a variety of vanilla waffles, and the stroopwafels waffle.
Belgian waffles are light, airy, and fluffy inside; sweet, crunchy and browned in butter until crispy.
Belgians serve their waffles hot with sprinkles of icing sugar and whip cream melting over it.
Rich and tasty!
