amount measure ingredient -- preparation method 
  --------------------------------
1-3/4 cup  butter
2 cup  sugar
7 to 8   eggs --medium or large
4-1/2 cup  flour
 
(the original belgian waffles - really a sort of cookie) this came 
from 
belgium and is a traditional christmas morning treat. soften butter until 
nearly melted, but not quite; cool. beat eggs. add sugar gradually. add 
butter. add flour a little at a time, mixing thoroughly after each 
addition. 
refrigerate dough several hours. cook on waffle iron until light golden 
brown (not too dark!). use a heaping tablespoon of dough on each section 
of 
waffle iron grid, or use a larger "blob" (belgian unit of measurement, i 
think) of dough in center of iron. separate sections when cooked. recipe 
can be doubled. galettes keep well in a covered tin. the lady who gave 
me 
this wrote, "we use no other flavoring but the natural good taste of 
butter 
is sufficient to make the galettes delectable morsels. in belgium they 
are 
served at new year and christmas and at all important family occasions 
such 
as wedding, baptismals. they are offered to convalescents hoping to awake 
their appetite and renew their strength." actually, these may be a 
little different for american tastes as they are neither soft nor crisp. 
but, they are definitely authentic!
