Top-ranked recipe named "Crisp Belgian Waffles"

Share it:

The problem with your typical waffle is that they become soggy minutes after reaching your plate. Cornstarch is used to ensure that the first bite is as crispy as the last. This recipe makes 4 6-inch waffles. For best results let the batter sit in the fridge overnight.

Are you making this? 
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup buttermilk powder; (optional)
3 teaspoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1/8 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup water; (warmed to 95°-110° F)
1/4 cup Butter; melted
1 Egg
1 cup milk; warmed (lukewarm, 80°-85° F)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. Combine the water and 1 tsp. of sugar in a large bowl. Add the yeast and stir until dissolved. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes.

2. Add egg, milk, sugar, and salt and stir until combined.

3. Once those are mixed together, stir in melted butter.

4. Next mix in the all-purpose flour and cornstarch until lumps disappear. Cover and store the batter in your refrigerator overnight.

5. In the morning, use the batter to prepare your waffles based on your iron's instructions. If your iron has the option, make sure to choose the "slow-cook" or "uniform-texture" mode.

Couldn't get it to say crisp. But it tasted great with ham and eggs.

I would recommend using the Chef's Choice 830B WafflePro Classic. With waffle recipes that use yeast I get the best results when I set my iron to its 'slow-cooked' or 'uniform-texture' mode. [I posted this recipe.]
