Crispy Belgian Waffles

6 waffles

Today we’ve got another Belgian waffles recipe perfect for a weekend morning! These Belgian waffles are similar to the fluffy pankcake-like ones we posted last year. However, this time we’re aiming for the crisp factor.

The secret ingredient is cornstarch! You’ll get a crunchy exterior with a soft billowy interior.Although we make these with gluten-free flour, regular flour will work perfectly. Gone are the days when we used to have to mix our own – thanks to Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour.

To impart a similar tang to buttermilk, we use goat milk products. But you can substitute regular milk and yogurt instead if you prefer.Pour the mixture into the waffle maker and wait until you see bubbles breaking on the surface before closing the lid.

Cook according to your waffle maker and you get this golden deliciousness!

If you’re making them to freeze, pop them onto a rack to cool, then wrap well and store.

We top them with off with a pat of butter and whatever fresh fruit we have on hand: bananas, strawberries, blueberries. A few walnuts adds additional crunch.
