belgian waffles with nutella sauce

The lovely thing about being married is that you suddenly have a kitchen full of every amazing tool and appliance you’ve ever dreamed of.  Among those, and one we were particularly excited about, is a belgian waffle-maker.  But what’s better than freshly made waffles first thing in the morning?  Freshly made waffles drizzled in nutella sauce, full of chocolate, hazlenut, sugary flavor.  You won’t think about maple syrup the same way ever again.

And these are really easy, too.  One nice thing about waffle batter — it’s essentially the same as pancake batter, so you can substitute recipes for one or the other easily.  So if you don’t have a waffle maker handy, just take out your skillet or griddle, and go for it.  Dare I say — this would make a great Thanksgiving breakfast?  Just putting it out there…  Decide for yourself!

Belgian Waffles with Nutella Sauce


For the waffles:
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
1/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 cups milk

For the sauce:
1/2 cup nutella
1/3 cup milk


Preheat your waffle iron. 

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt, and set aside.  In a second bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar dissolves and the eggs turn pale yellow.  Add the melted butter and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine. Add the flour mixture and whisk briefly.  In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and gently fold them into the waffle batter. Pour just enough batter into the iron to cover the grid.  Cook until the waffles are golden brown or the steam subsides, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat the milk over very low heat in a saucepan.  Once the milk is hot to the touch, add the nutella and whisk until it dissolves and forms a thick sauce.  Pour the sauce over the waffles, and serve.

    Hi Katy, The waffle looks delicious with the nutella melted all over it. I have a tip about waffles. I’ve been married 40 years and I still remember my mother putting 2 pieces of raw bacon across the batter. Try it sometimes, it browns and gets crisp and that’s only 1/2 piece of bacon per waffle. not that bad but delicious and with syrup on top, to die for.

    @Rosemaryandthegoat – I thought I was the only one to do that. LOL

    I love my Belgian Waffle Iron, it gives me the round waffles with the deep holes. My wife LOVES waffles from the bottom of her heart. I think I will have to make them for her now.

    I like the nutella batter, I am going to give it a try.

    I know I have asked you this before (I think) but what kind of camera do you use. I can never get the lighting right on my pics. Sometimes the best ones I take are when I take my food outside.

    those look sooo good! I love my waffle maker and actually get more use out of it than expected.

    Wow, this looks great… making me so hungry! 🙂

    What it needs though are a big pile of freshly cut bananas on top.  And some whipped cream!  😉
