Belgian waffles are a type of waffle that originated in Belgium. They are typically made from a batter that includes flour, eggs, sugar, and leavening agents like baking powder or yeast. Unlike traditional American-style waffles, Belgian waffles are known for their light and fluffy texture with deep pockets, which are perfect for holding toppings like whipped cream, fresh fruit, syrup, or chocolate sauce.
