Here are few thoughts from a friend of mine regarding the best waffle recipe.
There are a lot of folks out there claiming to have the bestÂ waffleÂ recipe. They pile out of their Astro Vans and into church breakfasts, slinging mediocre waffles like a disenfranchised Dutchman. They’ll tell you their recipe is really simple (â€œI just use Bisquick batter and a can of spriteâ€) or takes a long time (â€œI let my yeast bloom for three daysâ€) but the end result is always the same. The waffles are soggy, floppy, chewy, and taste like an old plastic bag. Heed not the advice of your friends and neighbors, these people are fools.
The bestÂ waffleÂ recipe cannot be made by mere suburbanites with a cheapÂ waffleÂ iron and a furrowed brow. It must be made by God’s chosen people (for North Eastern Europe at least), the Belgians. The Belgians haven’t had it easy in a lot of respects, but they had one glorious food stuff (besides fries, beer, and chocolate) to get them through. The *cue angelic music* waffle! The BestÂ Waffle Recipe â„¢ will have Belgium ingredients written all over it;Â white sugar, cardamom and a rocket hotÂ waffleÂ iron. Anything less should not be trusted, it was likely made by the ignoramuses who defile the sacred foodstuff that isÂ waffle. Accept no less, heal thine soul.
