Fluffy Belgian Waffles

We recently returned from our first 10-hour road trip to South Dakota. We were like mega tourists with our camera and backpacks. We got all adventurous in the Black Hills, meandering through Custer State Park and Mt. Rushmore. It was simply gorgeous.

There’s no eye candy like the great outdoors.  Difficult hikes up rocky terrains in the summer heat = totally worth it = breathtaking beauty ⇓

The Littles shocked me at how well they navigated the tricky terrain of the wilderness. They were rewarded with coming face to face with huge elk and other wildlife like they’ve never seen.

As if that weren’t fun enough, our family flew in from Cali to hang with us last week. The Littles embraced every minute of entertaining their little cousins here in our Twin Cities stomping grounds. We finally got to show off our beautiful summer in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

Top with Berries, Maple syrup, or Powder Sugar

Just a few weeks ago, strawberries were aplenty and the farms were bursting with them. Hubby, the boys, and myself went berry crazy; we brought home a minivan full of lush, ripe, red, juicy berries.

After all, fresh strawberries are my favorite thing to toss over just about anything. From ice cream to pancakes to these fluffy Belgian waffles.

Or Serve Waffles Just as They are

Let’s just savor a moment of silence over these fluffy Belgian waffles.

Golden, slightly crispy edges, fluffy on the inside, and melt-in-your-mouth.

Simply divine fresh off the waffle iron. It’s perfection with a layer of freshly sliced strawberries on top and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. Or pure maple syrup, if that’s your jam.

These Fluffy Belgian Waffles are made with a sweetened batter, so they’re tantalizing just as they are. Just serve ’em up with some berries and you’re good to go. One bite of these homemade waffles and you’ll totally leggo of those Eggos.

      • chewoutloud

      Yay, so happy you loved it!!

    • Mairi

    Can I use 1% milk instead of whole milk?

      • chewoutloud

      Mairi, you can use 1%, but it will probably be a bit thinner of a batter. Still yummy, though 🙂 Enjoy!

      • Edie

      I used 1% milk and added 2 Tsp cinnamon and it was AMAZING! This is definitely better than my favorite boxed just add water mix. Fluffy yet thick?!?! Yes it was!!! YUM! Thanks for sharing.

        • chewoutloud

        Yay! So so glad you liked it

    • Marie

    Can I make this batter the night before and refrigerate? Would make things so much easier!

      • chewoutloud

      Marie, I’ve done that successfully in the past. It’s probably a bit fluffier if the batter is done the morning of, but I’m with you – I really like to sleep a bit extra in the mornnings 🙂
