Belgian wafflesPosted: Updated:
1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Confectioners' Sugar, for dusting
Fresh fruit for drizzling
1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water. In a large mixing bowl, stir the flour with the salt. Whisk in the yeast mixture, milk, butter, egg yolks and vanilla until smooth.
2. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold them into the batter and let stand for 20 minutes.
3. Heat and grease a waffle iron. Pour 1 1/4 cups of the batter into the iron and cook until the waffles are golden, approximately 3-6 minutes, depending on iron. Dust the waffles with confectioners' sugar, drizzle with fresh fruit.
