Parked on one of the busiest streets in Brooklyn every weekend is a bright yellow food truck, Wafels and Dinge's. They make delicious Belgian waffles and serve in many different ways. They are crisp, fresh and just plain wonderful. They have a waffle ice cream sandwich which I really love this is my version, I used my biscuit cutter to make small rounds, here is a trio of the sandwiches one is made with homemade blackberry ice cream drizzled with blackberry basil syrup, one with Apricot jam spread on the waffle and vanilla ice cream and the other with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce.Note: The waffle recipe is adapted from a Bette Crocker recipe (the difference in my prep is that I used melted butter instead of oil) The Blackberry Gelato/Ice Cream is homemade here is the link if you want to make it yourself :http://www.food52.com/recipes... Please excuse the melted ice cream it was 100 degrees here today and even with AC I couldn't keep the ice cream intact. —sdebrango
For the Waffles: In large mixing bowl add your eggs and mix using a hand mixer until they are thick and foamy. Add the remaining ingredients and mix just until smooth.
Heat your waffle maker, pour some batter in make sure you leave about an inch from the edges I spread the batter fairly thin so the waffles would be on the thin side also I set the doneness to 6 on my waffle maker so they would get nice and golden brown. Bake until waffles are done (However your waffle maker lets you know mine whistles)
Remove waffles and place on cooling rack,let them completely cool. When they are cool cut rounds using your biscuit cutter. Add a scoop of ice cream of your choice to each spread jam or drizzle syrup put on the tops, eat, enjoy
I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking,
I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando.
I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
