Belgian-Style Yeast Waffles




This classic yeasted waffle recipe produces waffles that are wonderfully crisp outside, and creamy-smooth and moist inside. Even when cooling, they retain their wonderful texture. But don't worry, their flavor is so delightful they won't spend much time on the serving plate!

Belgian-Style Yeast Waffles


Yield: about 4 Belgian-style (deep-pocket) 7" round waffles.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup, optional
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast

Directions:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, leaving room for expansion; the mixture will bubble and grow.
  2. Stir to combine; it's OK if the mixture isn't perfectly smooth.
  3. Cover with plastic wrap, and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour; the mixture will begin to bubble. You can cook the waffles at this point, or refrigerate the batter overnight to cook waffles the next day.
  4. Preheat your waffle iron. Spray with non-stick vegetable oil spray, and pour 2/3 to 3/4 cup batter (or the amount recommended by the manufacturer) onto the center of the iron. Close the lid and bake for the recommended amount of time, until the waffle is golden brown. It takes us 5 to 6 minutes, using our 7" Belgian-style (deep-pocket) waffle iron.
  5. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200°F oven. Serve with berries and whipped cream, if desired.
