Belgian waffles – The light and fluffy textures

Belgian waffles are known for their light and fluffy texture with deep pockets that are perfect for holding toppings like whipped cream, fruits, and syrups.

Here’s a classic Belgian Waffle recipe for you to try:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the Waffle Iron:
    • Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. Mix the Dry Ingredients:
    • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Prepare the Batter:
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir gently until just combined. It’s okay if there are a few lumps; overmixing can make the waffles tough.
  5. Cook the Waffles:
    • Lightly grease the waffle iron with cooking spray or a small amount of melted butter.
    • Ladle an appropriate amount of batter onto the center of the preheated waffle iron, spreading it slightly toward the edges but not too close, as the batter will spread when the waffle iron is closed.
  6. Cook Until Golden and Crispy:
    • Close the waffle iron and cook until the waffle is golden brown and crisp, usually about 3-5 minutes. Cooking times may vary based on your waffle iron.
  7. Remove and Serve:
    • Carefully remove the waffle from the iron using tongs or a fork. Place it on a wire rack to prevent it from becoming soggy on the bottom.
  8. Repeat:
    • Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the freshly cooked Belgian waffles warm with your favorite toppings, such as whipped cream, fresh berries, sliced bananas, syrup, or even a dusting of powdered sugar.
