Belgian-Style Yeast Waffles

My kids love waffles, so now & then they would request for them. Occasionally, I would just buy the frozen ones from the supermarket. The kids love them but I find it so much cheaper to just make them at home. I would double the recipe & store the uneaten ones in the freezer. Then everytime the kids want to have waffles, they'll just need to heat them up in the toaster.


I've tried a few different recipes but this time I used a recipe that has yeast in it. It's a good recipe. The waffles turned out crispy on the outside & moist inside. Eat them when they are still warm because once cooled, they'll turn soft. When that happens, just reheat them in the toaster. Enjoy these homemade waffles!


Belgian-Style Yeast Waffles
Source: King Arthur Flour

Ingredients:
340g / 1 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
85g / 6 tbsp butter, melted
39 to 57g / 2-3 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
241g / 2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast


Directions:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients, except flour, in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. Add in flour & continue mixing until well blended. It's ok if the mixture isn't perfectly smooth.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap & let rest at room temperature for 1 hour; the mixture will begin to bubble. You can cook the waffles at this point, or refrigerate the batter overnight to cook waffles the next day.
  3. Preheat your waffle iron. Spray with non-stick vegetable oil spray, and pour 2/3 to 3/4 cup batter (or the amount recommended by the manufacturer) onto the center of the iron. Close the lid and bake for the recommended amount of time, until the waffle is golden brown. It takes us 5 to 6 minutes, using our 7" Belgian-style (deep-pocket) waffle iron.
  4. Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200°F oven. Serve with berries and whipped cream, if desired.
Yield: about 4 Belgian-style (deep-pocket) 7" round waffles.

A waffle maker is in my "to buy" list for the longest of time.... I wish I am your neighbour :)

Wendy,
No worries, now there is quite a number of models & brands of waffle maker in the market to choose from. When i bought mine, there was only 1 type. I see you shop quite a bit on-line, so you hv even more choices!
Yup, if only we are neighbours, then we get to be each others' food taster!:))

like wendy, i'm also looking for one..just 2 days ago, i was talking to another blogger that we are surprised that we couldnt find any waffle maker in ipoh and KL market..well..actually there's one..cuisineart but theirs is expensive..over RM1000.

Faeez said...

Lena,
Wow! RM1000 for a waffle-maker is quite steep. I know, for some reasons, there's limited range of waffle-makers for sale even in Singapore. However, there's a couple of shops here that carry the ones used by cafes & restaurants. I presume they are expensive....

May I know where you bought this maker in Singapore? I will have a day trip to SG soon, wanting to buy one.. So I can also try out your recipe , hehehe ..

Faeez said...

Sonia, I bought this long time ago. I think i bought it from Carrefour. Anyway, no worries, u can get it from any big electrical stores like Best Denki or Courts. There are so many Best Dengki outlets in sg.

Faeez, Thanks for the info. Anyway, i just made an order thru a China online website. It is cheap but can not use in the oven instead using gas stove..Since i did not make them so often, so it is ok.
