Useful Tips

If you want your dessert to remain crisp for longer, do not stack the waffles on top of each other immediately after cooking. Better to let them cool on a wire rack.

The filling is applied before serving. Otherwise, the dessert will get wet and no longer tasty.

Used as a filling:

  • Condensed milk, honey or thick jam;
  • Custard. Butter cream for cakes is also suitable. Decorate the top with nuts;
  • Fresh berries or fruits. They also make assorted items. For decoration, pieces of fruit are poured over with sweet syrup. Attention! There should not be too much syrup, the dessert will get wet;
  • Cheese mass. Dried fruits are used as decoration - raisins, chopped dried apricots or prunes. The cheese mass is poured with chocolate;
  • Suitable for decorating ice cream or pastry cream. An additional decoration is mint leaves.

Belgian waffles are a dessert everyone can cook. The main thing is the desire to cook and the electric waffle iron at hand. And determine the best recipe for yourself! As for the filling, it all depends on your imagination and desire to experiment! Good luck and bon appetit!
