What are your favorite waffle toppings?
Waffles are super easy to make once you have a good iron. Here’s one of my favorite recipes:
Belgian Waffles from Williams-Sonoma’s Breakfast
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, sifted
- 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup sparkling mineral water
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and still warm
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg yolk
- 2 large egg whites
- pinch of cream of tartar
The night before you plan to serve the waffles: In a large bowl. whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, salt and yeast. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat. combine the whole milk and the sparkling water and heat to lukewarm (105 degreesF). Whisk in the melted butter and vanilla. Pour into the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. Cover tightly and let stand overnight at cool room temperature.
The next morning: Preheat a Belgian waffle iron. Whisk the egg yolk into the batter. In a large clean bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, beat the egg whites and the cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Thoroughly stir about one-third of the beaten whites into the batter, then fold in the remaining whites, without overmixing.
When the waffle iron is hot, ladle 3/4-1 cup of batter into each waffle section and spread with a wooden spoon so the grids are evenly covered. Close the iron and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions until the waffle exterior is golden brown and the inside is light and springy, 4-5 minutes. (The first waffle may not be perfect. Adjust the amount of batter and cooking time if necessary.)
Keep waffles warm in a low oven. Serve with whipped cream, fresh fruit or maple syrup.
Makes about 2 large waffles.
