These are quite the hit at breakfast! You can add any fruit to the top but if you want, to go green top with kiwi! Great for any holiday - just add the fruit that fits the color. Like Christmas: strawberries and kiwi. "YUMBO"

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are the perfect waffle! They are fluffy and delicate on the inside while nice and crisp on the outside. The Irish cream really gives these a unique flavor. They're great all by themselves, but try adding some fresh fruit and whipped cream as Janet suggests. It enhances the flavor even more. A great addition to your morning menu!

How To Make irish belgian waffles

Test Kitchen Tips
These waffles puff up a lot (thanks to the baking powder), so be careful not to overfill the waffle maker. We had a couple of explosions in the Test Kitchen.
  • 1
    Use two bowls, one for wet ingredients and the other for dry.
  • 2
    Whisk the wet until completely blended.
  • 3
    Combine the wet ingredients into the dry until thoroughly moistened.
  • 4
    Pour a little over one cup into your Belgian waffle maker. Cook for 4 minutes. (I use the flip waffle maker.)
  • 5
    After cooked: Dust with powdered sugar using a small hand sifter. Top with your favorite fruit!
