This is my all-time favorite waffle recipe! These Belgian Waffles are light, tender and fluffy on the inside with just the right amount of crisp on the outside. Since I first shared these 3 years ago we’ve had this recipe on repeat, everyone in my family loves them!
This Waffle Recipe is a Family Favorite
Around here we love a made-from-scratch, big, comforting breakfast. With all of the holidays and family I’ve had staying lately, we’ve been going through breakfasts like these like crazy.
Normally I only pull out the homemade waffle recipe for the weekend or special weeknight meals, so it’s been fun to splurge more than normal lately.
I made these Belgian waffles for Christmas breakfast and of course we all loved them so I decided to make them again to share with all of you.
This waffle recipe turns out waffles that are light, fluffy, with just the right crisp. And I love the flavor the buttermilk adds to keep them far from boring.
Belgian Waffles: Remember the Toppings!
Then when you top your Belgian waffles with the decadent toppings like these pictured, you will simply fall in love. I couldn’t pick a favorite between the berries and cream with fruit syrup or the churro waffles, they are both over-the-top delicious!
No matter how you choose to top them this is one of those waffle recipes you’ll turn to time and time again. What’s not to love about these?
These waffles are delicious with fruit syrup. I love to make homemade syrup (blueberry, strawberry or buttermilk) or when you go to Hawaii grab some of the guava syrup it was made for these!

In a separate mixing bowl whisk together buttermilk, milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract and egg yolks until combined.
In a separate bowl, using an electric hand mixer set on high speed, whip egg whites (make sure there isn't a drop of yolk or they'll never fluff up) until soft peaks form. Add sugar and whip until stiff glossy peaks form.
While whisking, pour buttermilk mixture into well in flour mixture and mix just until combined (batter should be slightly lumpy). Fold in egg white mixture.
Cook batter in waffle iron according to manufactures directions. Once each waffle is done, transfer to warm oven and allow to rest until crisp. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.
