waffles with the sugar

Oh, you want to make them, too, do you? Well, you should! Right now.

You have to start with Belgium waffle batter. You can either use a mix or use the recipe below.

Belgium Waffle Recipe
2 egg yolks
5 tablespoons white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups flour
2 3/4 tsp baking powder (combine with flour)
2 cups warm milk
2 egg whites

1 cup sugar cubes, crushed into smallish chunks (don't obliterate them or make them all powder--you definitely want chunks of sugar)

In a large bowl, beat together egg yolks and sugar. Beat in vanilla extract, butter and salt. Alternately mix in flour (with baking powder) and milk until blended well.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Fold egg whites into batter and let stand for 40 minutes.
Mix in the chunks of sugar.

Generously spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and fluffy. Be sure to spray the waffle iron between each waffle, because the sugar will stick and burn.

If dessert waffles laced with chunks of sugar aren't sweet enough for you, feel free to top them with whipped cream and strawberries. Enjoy!
