Hammer Waffle time!
Sorry, I had to do that. It’s been on my mind ever since the first Waffle made its way out of the machine… Sad, I know 😂
But yes: Waffles. I wasn’t planning on making Waffles in the near future to be honest. In fact my husband, who’s no sweet tooth at all, got so bored one rainy Sunday afternoon he spontaneously decided to bake Waffles. Yay me! So todays post is actually thanks to him. He used the Waffle recipe from Sofie Dumont, one of my favorite pastry chefs in Belgium.
As we were making the Waffles, we were trying to figure out what the best way was because we wanted real Brussels Waffles with nice edges. We managed to get them by turning the waffle maker upside down for a few minutes after we filled it so the batter gets spread evenly and everywhere. But much depends on the waffle maker itself I guess.
What we need (+- 30 Waffles):
- 25 g yeast
- 500 ml milk
- 500 ml water
- 4 eggs
- 600 g flour
- 200 g butter
- pinch of salt
- Waffle maker
- Melt the butter and let it cool
- Heat milk & water and dissolve the yeast in it. Make sure the mixture doesn’t boil.
- Split the eggs
- Add the egg yolks to the mixture
- Add flour and salt to the mixture and blend till all the lumbs are gone
- Add the melted butter
- Whip up the egg whites and add in 2 times to the mixture
- Cover the bowl with a cloth and let it sit for about 45 minutes. Now’s the time to call your bubble friends for a safe Waffle party.
- Bake the Waffles & decorate however you like!
