This recipe will make 4 or 5 Belgian waffles. After they are made, spread cold whipped cream on top and thee strawberries.
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3½ cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 4 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh small strawberries
  1. In a butter warmer, melt the butter over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, then resift with the baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  3. In a 4-cup measuring glass, beat the egg yolks well, then add the milk and melted butter, stirring as you pour it in. In another measuring glass or deep bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric or hand mixer until they form peaks.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients, except for the egg whites, into the dry ingredients and fold, don’t beat, with a just a few strokes with a fork. The batter should be lumpy. It should never be beaten, only folded until everything is mixed. Fold the egg whites into the batter until they are well blended.
  5. Preheat a waffle iron over medium heat. Cook according to the instructions of the waffle iron, which should not require any oil or butter, but use it if you’re worried about sticking. Cover with whipped cream and strawberries once all the waffles you want to make are made and then serve immediately.
