Belgium’s most famous contribution to food are waffles, and they have been around in history since the Middle Ages. A waffle is a cake made out of dough or batter than is cooked in a waffle iron to give it a distinctive check-patterned impressions.

    Here is my recipe for the famous Brussels waffle:

    2.5 oz. active dry yeast
    ¼ milk
    3 egg yolks
    2 ¾ cups of warm milk (110 °F/ 45 °C)
    ¾ cup of butter, melted and cooled
    ½ cup of white sugar
    1 ½ tsp salt
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    4 cups plain flour
    3 egg whites

    Dissolve ¼ cup of warm milk in a small bowl. Let it stand for 10 minutes.

    Whisk together egg yolks, ¼ cup of warm milk, and melted butter in a large bowl. Mix in the yeast, salt, sugar, and vanilla before mixing in the flour and the remaining 2 ½ cups of milk alternately. Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks are formed before folding it into the batter. Tightly wrap the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in a warm area for about an hour until it has doubled in volume.

    Get the waffle iron out and preheat it. Brush the insides of the waffle maker with oil before putting ½ cup of oil onto the middle of the iron. Close the lid and start baking the waffles until steam has stopped coming out from the waffle maker and the waffles are golden brown in color. Enjoy!
