Belgian Waffles

These take a little while to make, but they are so worth it!  The temperature of the mixture cannot be too hot or too cold.  The goal is to get the yeast to rise.   The aroma of these waffles will awaken your loved ones…yes, like those cheesy coffee commercials in the 80s…but in a much cooler way =)

1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
3 cups warm milk (110 degrees F or 45 degrees C)
3 eggs (separate the yolks and the whites)
3/4 cup butter, melted and cooled to lukewarm
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt

1.  Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm milk.  Stand 10 min.
2.  Add the following:
egg yolks
1/4 cup warm milk
melted butter
yeast mixture
sugar
salt
vanilla
milk and flour alternately
beat egg white, fold into batter
3.  Cover bowl with a warm towel, place in a warm place for one hour.  Yeast will rise.
4.  Pour batter onto waffle iron.
