These Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles are an excellent alternative to plain old-fashioned waffles! They are fantastic for a Saturday morning breakfast or even breakfast for dinner! The whole wheat flour gives them a hearty and filling twist to keep you feeling full!
Are you a pancake person or a waffle person? I am a waffle person, for sure. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my fair share of pancakes, but waffles are just better, in my opinion. They’re fluffy, crispy, and have little holes to hold all of the syrup. Yum, so good! We’re divided in my household because my husband prefers pancakes over waffles. But who am I kidding? He’ll happily eat both!
I got my awesome waffle maker from my sister for a wedding present, and I’ve been using that thing like crazy ever since. I probably make waffles for dinner more than I ever have for breakfast, because they’re just that good! I love experimenting with flavors too. I’ve done pumpkin, apple, gingerbread, chocolate. It’s so much fun playing with the flavors. But this recipe is a classic, and there is nothing wrong with that!
How to Get Crispy Waffles
So, I like my Fluffy Whole Wheat Belgium Waffles nice and crispy on the outside. My best tip to getting crispy waffles is adding a little cornstarch to the batter. Not too much, because it’ll affect the taste. But just enough so that it’ll give you that delicious waffle texture. Also, make sure your waffle maker is turned up high enough! I always crank mine up to get them extra crispy.
