Have you ever tried the Belgian waffles at a Best Western Plus breakfast bar? Talk about delicious! They are light and airy; the maple syrup and butter soak right in making a delectable and slightly naughty calorie-wise, morning treat.
I say, what are vacations for if not to gain a few pounds?
After staying at a Best Western Plus hotel in Texas and enjoying these waffles I was determined to hunt down the recipe or at least find one that was a close cousin. I can't recall where I found this easy Belgian waffles recipe but it is THE BEST waffle recipe I have found in my 40 years of cooking. *smile*
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk together flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Blend together buttermilk, egg, butter and vanilla. Pour wet ingredients into dry. Mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into a pre-heated belgian waffle iron.
Cook per waffle iron instructions. Makes 1 large waffle.
