Rich Danish Waffles

Rich Danish Waffles


"This is a rich waffle recipe based on a Danish batter for aebleskivers. It uses sugar and is wonderful and crisp. We always freeze the extra waffles and the kids heat them during the week. A minute in the microwave and a quick trip into the toaster renews the warmth and crispness anytime."

  1. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl until well combined. Whisk together egg yolks, buttermilk, milk, vanilla extract, and butter in a large bowl until smooth. Whip egg whites in a clean bowl to soft peaks. Fold the flour mixture into the egg yolk mixture until blended, then fold in the whipped egg whites.
  2. Preheat a Belgian waffle iron and coat with cooking spray. Spoon about 1/2 cup of batter per waffle, depending on the size of your waffle iron, onto the center of the hot iron. Close the lid and cook until steam stops coming out and the waffle is golden brown, about 90 seconds.

We enjoyed these for a quick dinner. I halved the recipe and it still made a ton! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

takes time to make, but very worth it! Freeze well, flat on cookie sheet then place in plastic ziplock bag. My daughter says, "make the 9 egg waffles please"

So much better than the mix I was using!
