Crispy and light Belgian waffles

If you like waffles as much as I do, I am pretty sure you are a bit choosy when it comes to the texture. I prefer mine to be very light and crispy with just tiny bit of chewy inside. It took me some time to find the right recipe, and now i can proudly share it with you. The waffles are great. These are the yeasty ones, so it involves waiting for 1 hour before you can bake them, but the results are so worth the waiting!!! The yeasty smell in your house usually associated with a brioche or croissants will serve as a call for all your family;) They will swarm your kitchen and I promise that most of the waffles will disappear without any toppings - they are this delicious on their own :)


for 6-8 waffles

1 cup/120g of flour

1/4 cup /62ml warm water

1 cup / 250ml warm milk

3.5g dried yeast

55g melted butter

1 tbsp sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp of salt

1/4 tsp of baking soda


  1. In a bowl combine egg yolk, warm milk, warm water, melted butter, sugar, yeast and mix well. Add flour and mix until combines without lumps. Cover with cling film and let sit in warm place for around 1 hour. It should be a bit bubbly afterwards.

  2. When the batter is rested, heat up your waffle iron.

  3. Place the egg whites in a separate bowl, add salt and baking soda and whip until stiff peaks. Combine very carefully with the other batter so not to deflate the whites too much.

  4. The batter can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days and you can use it straight away after taking out from the fridge.

  5. Pour the batter into the iron - you have to check how much is enough. I bake mine for 8 minutes - or until crispy. After baking put them on the cooling rack - the will become even crispier after 1 minute.

  6. Serve as you wish - when warm or if you want to put whipped cream on them as I do, wait until they are a bit cooler - no more than 4 minutes;) so the cream does not melt. They taste great on their own but after long time eating them, now I serve them with whipped cream, fruits, chopped nuts and some melted chocolate - version for a gourmand;)
