Yeast-Leavened Belgian Waffles
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1½ tsp yeast
  • 1¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups very warm milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Homemade Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ – 1 tsp vanilla, to taste
  • 1½ tsp sugar, to taste
  • Strawberries, sliced
Yeast-Leavened Belgian Waffles
  1. Mix together the flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, butter and vanilla.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until the large lumps are moistened.
  4. In a third bowl, beat the egg whites into soft peaks.
  5. Fold the egg whites into the batter.
  6. Cover the bowl and let the batter rise in a warm, draft-free place for 1 hour or until light and bubbly. You can also refrigerate the batter overnight at this point.
  7. Stir down the batter and then pour onto the hot, greased waffle iron to bake according to the waffle maker's cooking instructions.
Homemade Whipped Cream
  1. Mix the ingredients together and beat on high using a hand-held mixer or a KitchenAid mixer with the whisk attachment. It will take several minutes for the liquid cream to transform into fluffy peaks.
  2. If you beat the whipping cream until it is too stiff you can add more cream and continue beating.
