Not only are these RESTAURANT-STYLE BELGIAN WAFFLES amazing, but it’s a one-bowl recipe and dairy-free! Perfectly crispy on the outside and light on the inside, these are the perfect addition to your weekend breakfasts!
Forget going out to brunch and make the best Belgian waffles at home. In your jammies!!
Okay, it’s kind of wrong to say “no” to brunch in Dallas. But I’m taking a stand because these Belgian waffles will change your life.
Let me introduce you to Caki Waffles.
They are a staple food group at my mom’s household. She is “Caki” to my nieces and nephews, and if you are a beloved grandchild visiting Caki, you get a homemade breakfast. Every morning.
These waffles are SO GOOD that they are requested on every visit to Caki’s house, and are now lovingly referred to as Caki Waffles. I love them just as much as the kids, and know you will too! These waffles are a bit crispy on the outside, light and airy on the inside, and melt-in-your-mouth amazing.
But wait, there’s more.
Four ingredients. One bowl. AND dairy-free for all you mama’s out there dealing with kid food allergies.
Some of you may look at me and say, “Bisquick, really? Have you lost your ever-loving, baking-from-scratch mind?” Don’t judge here, but listen closely… the secret ingredient is club soda, and it is magical. It transforms this pre-made mix into something beautiful. This recipe was originally from my grandmother who made everything from scratch, her own syrup included, so you know they are to be trusted.
I’m planning to make these for the next wedding or baby shower I host! I love the idea of using brown butcher paper as the table cloth and writing each topping on the paper. Nutella, syrup, whipped cream, fresh fruit, sprinkles, peanut butter, powdered sugar, chocolate chips… even savory toppings like bacon, cheese, avocados…. Okay, I’m getting way too excited here.

If you’re hosting family over the holidays, I hope you will try this recipe! If you need another breakfast idea, check out my easy Banana Nut Bread!
P.S. This is the Waffle Maker (on sale!!) we have and we love it- it’s a double iron so you can make them twice as fast. Thanks Aunt Teresa! 🙂

Yields 4-8 waffles, depending on the size of your waffle maker
- 2 cups biscuit mix (Bisquick)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 1/2 cups club soda
- Heat and grease Belgian Waffle maker.
- Add egg to medium size bowl and whisk.
- Add oil, club soda, and biscuit mix, and whisk until well combined.
- Pour batter into Belgian Waffle maker (batter will be thick) and cook until waffles are golden brown, or until desired crispiness (I set my waffle maker at a 4 out of 5).
- Repeat and enjoy!
This batter is of an effervescent nature and does not store well, so cook all at once and then freeze the waffles. Heat them in an oven or toaster oven. Our favorite toppings are syrup, fresh fruit, peanut butter, and powdered sugar!
