Belgian Waffles – Yeast
By Tad Mitchell
December 24, 2016
These are my favorite waffles. Since yeast is used as the leaven, there is no strong baking powder taste. Also, since I usually make wheat waffles the extra time that the dough sits gives the whole wheat flour a chance to absorb more water making a moist waffle.
1Combine yeast, milk, vanilla, egg yolks, flour, salt, and sugar and beat for 2 minutes.
2Add melted butter and stir well.
3Beat egg whites to stiff peaks; fold gently into batter.
4Let mixture sit in warm place about 45 minutes or until mixture doubles in bulk.
5Use 7/8 cup batter per waffle. Makes about 5 Belgian waffles.
