Fluffy Belgian Waffles are one of the best weekend breakfast recipes to have in your pocket. They are easy to make, quick to come together, and can be customized with everyone's favorite toppings!
Belgian Waffles are one of the best weekend breakfasts that we make in our home. Especially at this time of the year when fresh strawberries are in season. We love to sprinkle chocolate chips and sliced strawberries over them. And of course, top the waffles off with some whipped cream!
Are you as excited about strawberry season as I am? About mid-winter, I start thinking about going to buy or pick fresh strawberries. That is about when I run out of our homemade jam. I also love to make these Strawberry Rhubarb Bars when it is strawberry season.

What do You Need to Make Belgian Waffles?
These waffles are pretty easy to make. Of course, the most important thing you will need is a waffle iron. The Presto FlipSide Belgian Waffle Maker is the one we have, and it works great!
How to Make Belgian Waffles
Before starting, I would suggest slicing up your berries so that they are ready to go once your waffles are cooked. The waffles cook pretty quickly, so you will want those strawberries ready to sprinkle over your warm waffle. When you are ready to start making the waffle batter, turn on your waffle iron and let it heat up while you whip up the ingredients.
For each waffle, you will need about one cup of batter. We measure out a cup, but some usually stays in the measuring cup…that is fine. No need to scrape out the batter each time.
Instead, you might have enough for an extra smaller one at the end. This recipe makes four big waffles. Sometimes we make one and a half of the recipe or even double, so we can have a little more because they are so delicious!
What Goes on Top of Belgian Waffles?
You can top Belgian Waffles with whatever you like. My kids and I like to sprinkle chocolate chips and strawberries over our waffles and top it off with some whipped cream. My husband prefers to skip the chocolate chips and just sprinkle some strawberries and top them with whipped cream. Syrup and powdered sugar are also great options for these waffles! I actually think you could eat these plain and still love them. But of course, if you are a chocolate lover like me…you go for the chocolate chips and strawberries!
