ingredients

directions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup warm milk. Beat the egg whites just until stiff peaks form. In a large bowl, mix together the egg yolks, 1/4 cup of the remaining milk, the melted butter and the sugar. Add the yeast mixture, salt, vanilla, and then alternate between the flour and remaining milk. Gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Cover the batter without touching it, and then set it in a warm place to rise until it doubles in volume, about 1 hour. Cook in a waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions.

    Fluffiest, lightest Belgian waffles we have had yet. I was put off by the extra step of beating the egg whites until stiff, but I decided to go with it. I think I got a little yellow in the whites, so they got very foamy but didn't beat up. I folded them in anyway, and it still worked! It made 7 large waffles, and I cooked each about 3 min. 15 sec. WARNING: You won't need much syrup with these waffles, since they are so light. These go in my recipe box.

    Made these when we had overnight guests, & our breakfast was absolutely delicious ~ Well worth the effort to make 'em! I did my usual topping of light corn syrup, but also had a homemade blueberry/marionberry combo syrup for the others to try! I'll be keeping this recipe around for sure! Thanks for sharing it!

    You can make up the batter the night before, I think the final waffles have a better yeast flavor this way. Plus I am not half a asleep trying to put these together. I let the batter warm up the next morning before I start cooking. This does make a good sized qty, so I just freeze any extras. Once thawed, the toaster keeps them crispy when warming them up, but they do not have as much flavor as the fresh ones, But they are still better then other recipes. This is one of the very rare waffles I can eat with only butter and still enjoy the flavor of the waffle. I do use 2tsp vanilla and 1.5tsp salt instead.

    These are great. They certainly beat the boxed mix i usually use. We topped with pecans, bananas, and brown sugar. So good!
