Soft waffles – The granny waffles

There’s nothing like homemade waffles! Not to mention the exquisite smell that fresh waffles spread throughout the house.
You have them in all shapes and sizes. These are the one and only soft waffles according to Vincent’s grandmother’s recipe.

At your request, I reworked this recipe with Zùsto, so everyone can eat HUGE amounts of it.
I’d like to share another big secret before you get started: in our home, we eat the first waffles warm with a layer of waffle dough on top. It’s so good! You don’t have to adopt this tradition but I can assure you, it’s addictively delicious!

About Joeri Sterckx

I’m Joeri Sterckx and I was born on the last car-free Sunday of 1973. And just like my parents had to be creative to get to the hospital, I now enjoy getting creative in the kitchen!

Cookies, or “gateaux” as we call them here at home, are one of our family traditions. Every celebratory occasion is a reason to have one… And every occasion deserves a celebration! That’s why I’m convinced I inherited my passion for desserts at an early stage.

My background is that I’m a preschool teacher, but I currently work as a pedagogical supervisor where I support teams in putting together powerful and meaningful teaching sessions.

The rest of my time is spent being a dad to Rune and Tejo, and having lots of fun and laughter.

I hope I inspire you with my bakes. To see more, please take a look at my Instagram account and digital photo album @joeristerckx

And here’s my golden rule to finish with… baking starts with weighing items out and ends with licking the bowl clean!

Have fun baking!
