The first thing I do is take my eggs out of the fridge
Add dry ingredients to wet and stir only until blended
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry (SEE NOTES) and fold gently into batter.
Spray heated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and cook on hot waffle iron until done.
Add your choice of fresh berries, whipped cream and syrup. Although topping are optional, they really make a huge difference in taste. These toppings go so well with these chocolate waffles. And the toppings are part of what distinguishes Belgian waffles from regular waffles.
VIDEO: How to beat egg whites to stiff consistency💭 Top tipI will make up this entire recipe and freeze any left over waffles (they freeze well).
