We were staying in our B&B in Ghent, Belgium, when we decided to take the train to Brugge. I saw travel videos before, but I wanted to see it for myself. There I tasted the world most famous Belgian Waffles
When in Europe, we never visit the same place twice, there is so much to see and explore. I remember those Waffles well, I had them on the Brugge Market place. They are so exceptional, light and fluffy.
We were sitting on the Marktplatz in Brugge when I ate those delicious Belgian waffles the first time. You should try, it will not disappoint you. Scroll down to see the recipe!
I always like to try and taste other country’s cuisine. These Belgian waffles are made with yeast and quark (substitute quark with 4% greek yoghurt).
Angie’s pick. The Belgian waffle maker groves are deeper than the usual one, and they come in all price categories:
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 cup greek yoghurt (or sour cream)
- 2 1/3 cup flour
- 125 ml mineral water
- 1 packet instant dry yeast
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 dash salt
- 1 tsp juice of one lemon (zest)
- ½ cup warm water
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- Dissolve the instant yeast in warm water.
- Add all other ingredients, except the powdered sugar (tip: mix together the Greek yoghurt and mineral water and add to the mixture).
- Let dough rise for 45 minutes
- Warm up the waffle maker to the highest possible setting.
- Bake the waffles until they get golden-brown.
When finished cover with powdered sugar or fruit and whipping cream, hot cherries, strawberries, vanilla sauce, Nutella etc.
