It is 30C outside, beautiful summer day and our “little” happy girl is going to a party. A friend has invited her to join in their family home garden having fun and swimming in the in-door pool. Happy sixteen, I wish I could do the same! Instead as responsible parents we are baking classic Belgian waffles to bring as a gift for the girls and nibble while having fun.
This recipe is a real classic, copied from the pages of the yellow looking booklet, still miraculously kept in the box together with the waffle iron machine. Yet, tested for nearly over a decade in our waffle loving family home.
- 250g butter
- 250g sugar
- 500g plain flour
- 6 free-range eggs
- 500ml milk
- 2 packs vanillas
- 1 tsp baking powder
In a bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.
In another bowl, lightly beat the butter, the vanilla and the sugar. One by one add the eggs. Than add the the milk and mix well.
Stir the flour and the baking powder into the egg mixture just until combined.
Bake in a preheated waffle iron according to manufacturer’s directions until golden brown.
Serve with strawberries or syrup.
