3. Tips for Preparing Waffle Batter

How does waffle baking work best? My tips:

Our companions:

  1. Cherry ragout: Sounds wild, has nothing to do with meat. We refine our hot cherries with cinnamon, wine, liqueur, citrus zest and vanilla
  2. Whipped cream: fresh whipped cream with vanilla sugar
  3. Vanilla ice cream: Who does not have an ice cream machine, buys the ice cream from the freezer in addition …or you can get it fresh from the Italian ice cream parlor.
  4. Icing sugar

5. Waffles – the Most Beautiful Variety Explained

First thing that comes to mind are Grandma’s waffles.  Fine sponge waffles baked in the shape of a heart and refined with icing sugar, that was also available in Bavaria.

Waffle cookies (Krumkake), they are liked in Northern Germany. They are crispy, thin New Year’s cakes with aniseed, rolled into conical bags. For all those who also love liquorice…

Stroopwafels, lekker! Be sure to try it when you are in Holland. There are great little shops in Amsterdam where the Stroop wafers are freshly baked. You can also get a fancy topping of your choice. Stroopwafels are ambiguous and filled with caramel – what more do you want 🙂

Belgian waffles, which are baked with or without yeast, are similar in taste and consistency to granny’s waffles.

I show you here the square Brussels waffles, these are soft waffles with the typical hollow ribs. Liège waffles are similar: just as thick with rather round, crispy edges.
