Who doesn't like a belgian waffle every now and then? They are pretty expensive if you go out to a diner for breakfast though. I always wanted my own waffle maker so I got this one from Amazon. It's called the Proctor-Silex Belgian Waffle Baker. I got it for a good price and have to say, it is awesome!
When I first used it, I did make the mistake of spraying it with non-stick spray, but it's so awesome, that you don't even need to spray anything! I've been playing around with all kinds of fun toppings to use on it and always add whatever fresh fruit I have and they are so delicious!
Here's how to make your own belgian waffles:
1. Start out with a pancake and waffle flour mix. I use this one, Golden Malted Pancake & Waffle Flour and it is amazing.
2. Plug in the waffle maker. The indicator light will turn on when it is heated.
3. Next I follow the steps to make the mix on the canister. This one in particular calls for:
1 cup of mix
2 tbs of butter
5oz of water
Mix all ingredients together.
3. The indicator light should be on now so I pour in some batter to cover the plate. I keep it open for a minute so that when I close the lid, it's cooked somewhat so that it doesn't spill over the sides.
4. The indicator light goes off when your waffle maker is done. I would say it takes about 5 minutes but I feel as though this is too much time and makes the waffle to hard. I like mine to be a little softer.
5. Set the waffle on a plate and add your extras. I dusted on some confectioner's sugar, whipped cream, syrup and some blueberries! Again, this is all optional and you can add whatever extras you like or have on hand.
This waffle maker makes some pretty big waffles so I can barely even finish mine! I think these are so fun to make and help save money by staying home instead of going out to a diner!
