Belgian Waffles

I’ve been nostalgic about waffles ever since I left Turkey (yes, I know, that’s a strange place to initiate waffle-nostalgia). I think it’s because their version of waffles is a super-loaded version which believes in putting all the deliciousness in the world – nutella, strawberries, bananas, oranges, kiwis, chocolate syrup, a few scoops of ice cream – all on one waffle! So this morning, we decided to re-create part of it.

Here’s the recipe. (It makes 6 waffles)

Basic Ingredients

2 eggs

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 and  3/4 cups milk

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 tablespoon white sugar

4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (optional)

1/2 cup peanut butter chips (optional)

Toppings (optional)

Maple syrup

2/3 bananas

A cup of blueberries/strawberries


1. Preheat waffle iron (I used a Belgian waffle iron). Beat the eggs in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in flour, milk, vegetable oil, sugar, baking powder, salt and vanilla, just until smooth.

2. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray.

3. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Make sure you don’t over-pour because once the iron is closed, it might spill out. Sprinkle the mix (while on the iron) with chocolate chips and/or peanut butter chips. Close the iron.

3. Cook until golden brown. Serve with any of the

optional toppings.

Perfect start to the morning!
