Belgian Dessert Waffle with Fresh Strawberries, Whipped Cream, and Chocolate Sauce

The first time I had Belgian waffles was in Ogunquit, Maine, a long time ago.  We used to vacation there and we found a wonderful little café that opened only for breakfast and their specialty was the Belgian waffle served with huge, fresh Maine blueberries.  Naturally, a Belgian waffle maker had to be purchased so we could make them at home because waffles are, in fact, quite easy to make and just take standard baking ingredients!

Waffles are very versatile.  They can be a breakfast food, eaten at brunch, lunch, for dessert or even as a main course for dinner, depending on the topping.  There is nothing like creamed chicken atop a puffy Belgian waffle for good old-fashioned comfort food!

I love fresh berries, especially strawberries and blueberries, on waffles. Good drizzled with pure maple syrup,  a rich chocolate sauce is also an option and a real treat for waffles.  So, why not take a lowly basic waffle and dress it up for a tasty meal at any time of day.

Waffle Ingredients

Belgian Waffles

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 medium-sized eggs, separated
2 tbsp melted butter
Separate the eggs.  Beat the egg whites stiff.  Set aside. 

In separate bowl, mix the egg yolks and all remaining ingredients.

With electric mixer, beat until well-blended.

Gently fold the egg whites into the flour and milk mixture.  Fold just until they are incorporated.  This will yield a light, fluffy waffle.

Heat waffle maker and cook waffles according to manufacturer’s directions.

To serve, add sliced fruit, a dollop of whipped cream, and drizzle with your favorite syrup or topping.  Dust with confectioner’s sugar, if desired.

Yield: Apx. 3-4 waffles
