Decadent desserts are my jam. I love making them and I love them to be as visually appealing as rich in savor. Waffles being my absolute favorite, I always try new recipes, depending on how much time I have and more importantly, what I have in my pantry. This time I decided to make Bruxelles waffles, I wanted the slight crunchiness and the bright color of the dough. I had two boys in need of a lot of affection in my house, so I also decided to be very generous with the toppings.
My favorites are still Liège waffles but I just didn’t have time nor energy to wait for the dough to rise, as you might know I’m not a very patient baker, I wanna think of something and make it right away. The maximum I can wait is generally thirty minutes because I can do the dishes meanwhile or tidy up my kitchen, but anything above it becomes a pain and I need to be mentally prepared to bake something with a lot of « let the dough rise for two hours » type of direction. I recently made beignets but I decided to do that at like 3pm, so more than enough time for them to be ready by teatime.
None of that with that recipe, so let’s make some crisp, tasty Bruxelles waffles shall we ?
- 400g plain flour
- 50 g white sugar
- 200 g brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 sachet of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 45 cl milk
- Mix the dry ingredients together, flour, baking powder, salt and white sugar.
- Add your egg yolks and start mixing, then gradually add your milk while stirring the dough
- Whisk your egg whites and incorporate them to the mixture with a wooden spoon
- Let your dough rest for 30 minutes and then add your brown sugar
- Heat up your waffle maker and pour some dough (not a lot, it’s liquid you don’t want it to drip overboard) on it, 2 to 4 minutes depending on how light or dark you want your waffles
- Pour some Nutella in a little bowl and heat it up for a few seconds on the microwave so it becomes runny
- Use a little spoon to drip the Nutella on your waffles and then top it with a vanilla ice cream scoop
- Add a little raspberry on top for some extra sweetness.
