How to Make the Waffle Batter with Chocolate Chips
In the mixing bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together.
Create a well in the center and add the remaining wet ingredients: milk, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla.
Whisk until the batter has formed and then stop. Try to not mix.
A Note About Waffle Batter
Whisk the batter together and check the thickness. If it is too thick, add a splash of milk. If it is too thin, add a sprinkle of flour. You want a batter that is pourable but will hold its shape for a second before falling back into the rest of the batter.
Brush both sides of the waffle maker with melted butter and pour in your batter. Cook Belgian waffles according to the recommended cook times for your waffle maker.
I love a warm Belgian Waffle with lots of delicious toppings like chocolate chips, fruit (raspberries are my favorite), whipped cream, powdered sugar, maple syrup, or butter.
Why Do You Not Whip Your Egg Whites?
What’s the difference between waffles with whipped egg whites and waffles without whipped egg whites? I’ve never noticed a big difference in the finished product. The most important thing is to make sure your waffle batter isn’t too thick. This way, the baking powder, and baking soda can create a light waffle.
Keeping Your Waffles Warm
Once you pull each waffle from the waffle maker, the best way to keep these warm is to place them in a 230-degree oven for up to 30 minutes before serving. Place your cooked Belgian waffles into the warm oven on a baking sheet lined with racks to keep the warm air circulating them and keep your waffle edges crisp.
Freezing Belgian Waffles
Freezing Belgian Waffles is the best way to store these when making them over a week in advance. Simply place. the cooked Belgian waffles into large zip bags, being sure to remove as much air as possible without flattening the waffles. Store in the freezer for up to 1-3 months.
Reheating Frozen Belgian Waffles with Chocolate Chips
Pull one Belgian waffle out and pop it into the toaster on the waffle setting. If your Belgian waffle won’t fit into your toaster, microwave until warm. To get the toasty edges, brush with melted butter and then place under the broiler for 40 seconds per side or until the waffle is as crispy as you’d like. It will taste as good as a fresh Belgian waffle every time!
