betty's egg free "belgian" waffles

Recipe by
Betty Bramanis

Light and fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. These are rich and delicious and my family loves them! Great for those with egg allergies or when you've run out of eggs. Please only use butter for a rich and fluffy waffle. Margarine doesn't work well in this recipe in my personal opinion. You don't make them everyday - so enjoy them when you do.

How To Make betty's egg free "belgian" waffles

  • 1
    Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to blend and add in some air.
  • 2
    Add in the remaining ingredients and stir through with a wooden spoon not the whisk (don't over mix) and rest for 10 - 20 minutes. Air bubbles will cover the top.

    Pre-heat and butter your waffle maker. Laddle or spoon batter into you maker and cook as per the cooking directions by the maker. (Mine has a green light which switches off when the waffles are cooked)
