Real Belgium Waffles With Banana Bourbon Syrup

Like finding a perfect recipe for banana bread, I have tried multiple waffle recipes and never was I satisfied.  All I asked for was a waffle recipe that is light and fluffy on the inside and crispy and sweet on the outside.  I decided to do some research and quickly discovered that recipes for real Belgium waffles have stiffened egg whites folded into the batter.

The light bulb went off when I realized that egg whites would make the waffles fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside where the grates of the waffle iron would melt the sugar and make that perfect sweet shell.  Once I put this to the test, I quickly discovered that this was the key to that perfect waffle recipe I had been looking for.

Before I developed this recipe, my waffle maker spent a lot of time in storage.  Now, I keep it on my appliance shelf in my kitchen where I can access it quickly.  We always make extra so we have them available for busy weekday breakfasts.  These waffles freeze very well.  To re-heat them, you simply pop them into the toaster oven for about 10 minutes and you have yourself a pretty awesome breakfast or dessert.  The cold leftover waffles are also really good.  I literally grabbed the leftovers to eat them on the go and they were a wonderful treat!

Although these Belgium waffles are perfect all on their own, toppings are always fun and add another delicious dimension to these waffles. Some additional toppings that I love to add are syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit, shredded coconut, Ice cream, Chocolate sauce, Chocolate chips, Jams and jellies.

If you want to try a fun and different topping, check out my recipe for banana bourbon syrup and you can also add some shredded coconut.  The combination is sweet and a bit tropical!

With Love,
