Fluffy Old Fashioned Belgian Waffles
1 C milk (heated for about 30-45 seconds to luke warm)
1 T yeast
Mix above ingredients together and set aside for about five minutes.
4 eggs, separated
1 C butter, melted
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 C + 2 T sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/4 C whole wheat flour (white wheat is best)
1/4 C milk
Mix together flour, sugar and salt. Make a well in the center and put in egg yolks, vanilla and butter and milk/yeast mixture. Mix with electric mixer on medium speed, adding 1/4 C milk while mixing. Beat egg whites to soft peaks in a separate bowl. Mix gently to stir in egg whites. Let rise for about an hour. Stir down and bake in a heated waffle iron…mmmmmm. These are delicious served with whipped cream and berries.
Note: You can actually flavor them with vanilla, almond or other extracts, too. Just experiment to find the flavor you most enjoy!!!
P.S. Don't mind the paper plate...we went easy over the holidays and did paper products for everything...not too pretty, but MUCH easier!!!
P.P.S. I decided to keep my cookbook on sale through New Years...Merry Christmas!!!
