Waffles in Brugge

One of the best thing about travelling is sampling the local food. Aside from the pebbled streets and Gothic architecture Brugge has waffles! I was 15 when I first visited the city and returned many times after but the food I took away was melted belgium chocolate waffles. I must have eaten nothing but for a week on one of my trips and it always brings me back to the old square.


Last year I finally received the present I had wanted for some time, a fancy waffle maker. Now this makes the perfect golden, crispy waffles in 3.5 minutes with probably very little skill. Below is a basic recipe for waffles and a good starting point to make your own perfect waffles.

Warm Belgium waffles

All you need is:

A waffle maker or waffle iron

A bar of Belgium chocolate

3 eggs

150g of butter

1.5 cups of sugar

3 cups of flour

3 cups of milk (or until thick batter is created)

Vanilla extract

 

Step 1. Grate or finely cut your Belgian chocolate into small pieces so it melts easily into you toasty waffle. Set this aside for later.

Step 2. Cream the butter and sugar together into a smooth paste.

Step 3. Add the eggs and whisk until fairly smooth.

Step 4. Add the flour and milk and beat vigorously until you get a batter consistency similar to a thick pancake.

I almost always end up with little lumps of butter through the mix as I am fairly inpatient. This doesn’t appear to affect the end result too much but if you can try to get of lumps.

Step 5. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract if you have any.If the batter is too thick add a splash more milk or if it’s too runny add a dash more flour.

Step 6. This depends on your waffle maker but if it’s non stick you shouldn’t need to spray with vegetable oil as the butter is in the mix. Add to waffle maker just covering the bottom of the iron with the thick mixture and cook for 3.5 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove and add grated chocolate or any other toppings of your choice. Such as maple syrup and bacon, fruit, peanut butter all good choices.

Warning this is not for the calorie conscious.
