This Belgian waffle recipe makes homemade Belgian waffles that are crispy on the outside with a light and fluffy interior.

In a saucepan combine the milk and cubes of butter. Warm it over medium-low heat until the butter has melted.

Take it off the heat and stir the milk and melted butter to let it cool slightly, then pour it into a large bowl.

Add the yeast, sugar, salt, all purpose flour, and eggs and whisk them together until combined. Let the waffle batter rest on the bench at room temperature for 2 hours or until doubled.

Add in 2-3 tablespoons more milk to create a pourable cake batter consistency.

Heat the Belgian waffle iron. Once hot, pour in approximately ½ cup of batter per waffle.

Bake them for 3-4 minutes until golden brown and crispy.

Serve them immediately

If they sit and cool down they will lose their crispiness.

Serve the waffles with your favorite toppings. Brussels waffles are often served purely with powdered sugar and eaten by hand.

However, you can add many more toppings such as  berries, maple syrup, whipped cream, brown sugar or fresh fruit.
