Belgian Waffles make for a Delightful Easter Brunch

Easter is just around the corner and some of you might be in the process of planning your Easter dinner menu. 

If you know me you know I love brunch on the weekends and I thought Easter is probably a great holiday to celebrate with a scrumptious brunch. 

While there are many options for a tasty holiday brunch I started thinking about one of my favorite brunch-time dishes.  

Belgian Waffles

Nothing beats a classic Belgian waffle

Waffles you may agree, are one of the best-loved brunch dishes. However, not all waffles are the same. 

Sure you could whip up some pancake batter and toss it in a waffle maker, but that’s not really a waffle.

Unlike pancakes, waffles have a slightly higher sugar and fat content. This gives waffles a crisper caramelized exterior.

These waffles are so fluffy and crisp

The best kind of waffles, in my opinion, are Belgian Waffles.

What makes Belgian waffles so good, is the whipping of egg whites, and then folding them into the batter.

The whipped egg whites add air to the batter making the waffles light and fluffy.

As with most of my recipes, I choose to use Splenda instead of sugar to make these waffles sugar-free. I also use Lactaid milk (lactose-free) instead of regular milk and it seems to work just as well.

Who doesn’t love strawberries

While I love me some pure maple syrup on my pancakes. When it comes to waffles I actually prefer fresh berries and a little, whipped topping. 

My favorite berries, of course, has to be strawberries. Who doesn’t love strawberries on waffles, am I right?
