### Ingredients:
#### For the Waffles:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 3/4 cups milk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

#### For the Nutmeg-Spiced Whipped Cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp powdered sugar
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

### Instructions:

#### Waffles:
1. Preheat your waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
3. In a separate bowl, blend the melted butter, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract.
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
5. Grease the waffle iron with a light coat of cooking spray or melted butter.
6. Pour a ladle of batter into the preheated waffle iron, spreading it out evenly. Close the waffle iron and cook according to your specific waffle iron’s instructions until golden brown and crisp.
7. Remove the waffle and keep it warm. Repeat with the remaining batter.

#### Nutmeg-Spiced Whipped Cream:
1. In a large chilled bowl, beat the heavy whipping cream until it starts to thicken.
2. Gradually add the powdered sugar, ground nutmeg, and vanilla extract.
3. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.

### Assembly:
1. Plate the warm Belgian waffles.
2. Generously dollop the nutmeg-spiced whipped cream on top of the waffles.
3. Optionally, you can add fresh fruit, maple syrup, or a dusting of powdered sugar to finish.
