Belgian waffles are the extra-special, fancy, high-maintenance member of the breakfast food family.

Pancakes and eggs are quick and easy, but waffles require you to drag out your giant waffle iron.  Then there’s the one-at-a-time aspect, meaning someone (probably you, since you’re the one reading the waffle recipe) has to man the waffle iron and churn them out, while everyone else eats.

 And then at the end, you have to figure out how to clean the waffle maker. 

And yet in spite of, or perhaps because of, all this extra work, Belgian waffles are arguably the best of the breakfast food options.  Light and fluffy inside, with crispy little pockets just waiting for a pool of butter or maple syrup.

Somehow, they are absolutely worth it – so, so worth it.

So let’s talk about how we achieve those light and fluffy waffles with crisp pockets.
