K was called into work this morning. Usually we both have Wednesday’s off and wake up to make each other breakfast or go out to a local breakfast place. Since he was not home and I didn’t want to go out by myself I decided to make Belgian Waffles. I love making waffles because anytime you have leftovers (which I had about 6 waffles left) you can just freeze them and you have homemade breakfast for the rest of the week!
1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cake flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
1 1/4 cups water
4 large eggs, separated
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted butter (melted)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk to mix. Add water, egg yolks and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
Whisk in melted butter. Beat egg whites in another bowl until stiff peaks form, then fold into batter, half at a time. Keep folding until smooth. Pour into waffle iron and bake until golden brown.
*You can serve these with whatever you would like…fruit, jams, or just syrups. I like mine with a bit of fruit jam drizzled on top!
