There is nothing like a homemade meal to express love to family and friends, especially one that is uncomplicated yet delicious. With the holidays quickly approaching, one of my signature breakfasts for loved ones is my homemade Belgian Waffles, topped with melting butter and maple syrup. Fresh fruit and whip cream also perfect toppers. Also, consider for a warm and festive champagne breakfast. I received my waffle maker when my husband and I got married and such a great gift. Holidays and special occasions aside, I use it weekly for Saturday or Sunday breakfast for our family. I have included the Joy of Cooking recipe with my personal edits, as well as links for waffle makers. The recipe is not too complicated but I do recommend using a hand mixer. Enjoy and happy cooking!
Preheat waffle iron. Whisk together in a large bowl, 3 large eggs and 1 1/2 cups milk. FYI: I only use whole milk. Personal edit: add a dash of vanilla to the mixture. I generally also let the egg mixture sit for about 10 minutes to room temperature.
Melt 1 stick of butter in the microwave.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour and 1 tablespoon baking powder.
Then, mix in egg mixture well, subsequently adding the butter. As noted above, I recommend using a hand mixer or large mixer (options noted below).
