Best Belgian Waffles EVER!

Image
The secret? Seltzer instead of water or milk. Our favorite for sweet morning brunch waffles is Polar raspberry lime flavored ... but when fried chicken and waffles are on our supper menu, there's nothing quite as good as Spindrift seltzer with cucumber!

If soft cake waffles are your bag, this recipe is not for you ...

LIGHT CRISPY BELGIAN WAFFLES
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 
1 teaspoon Truvia baking blend
2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled 
1 large egg
1 (12 fl oz can) seltzer or club soda, plain or flavored
coconut oil spray for waffle iron 

Whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.  Add butter, egg, and seltzer and whisk until smooth.  Lightly spray a preheated Belgian waffle iron coconut oil.  Pour about 2/3 cup of batter (should barely fill the bottom grid).  Cook according to appliance manufacturer’s instructions. Makes 3-4 waffles, depending on the size of your waffle maker.
