Easy Belgian Waffles Recipe

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*

Best Waffles
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 tablespoon sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
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.


  1. I've been looking for a great waffle recipe! Thanks for sharing this one :) It sounds great!

  2. You're welcome! I think you'll like it. It's the only recipe I use now. *smile*

  3. Oooh, this looks really good. My old standby waffle recipe calls for separating the eggs and folding in stiff egg whites to finish. Your recipe sounds much easier. Can't wait to try it with some new Canadian maple syrup that just arrived in the post.

    1. REAL Canadian maple syrup? you're making me hungry! *smile*

  4. Wow I literally typed in "Best Western Hotel recipe for Belgian Waffles" on Google, and your post came up! I am off to make it now!! Thanks a mil!

  5. They can simply be constructed of cardboard boxes and aluminum foil.
    A crock pot that can be removed from the heating element (or base) is helpful for browning meats.

    On the other hand, high setting will make it cook faster, which is for only 3 to 4 hours.
