Hello , you lot .
It's me and I'm here at the Crumbs and do Shop in Soho .
And today I'm gonna be sharing with you a really yummy brunch recipe .
Now , this recipe was given to me by a friend of mine in Kansas before she knew that I didn't actually own a waffle lion .
It's a yeast raised waffle recipe , and it's really , really tasty .
And now that I am in the possession of a gorgeous , shiny new waffle machine , I can make it for you and share the recipe with you .
So I'm really excited about doing that .
So let's go .
So the main difference between this waffle recipe and a lot of other waffle recipes is that the raising agent I'm gonna be using is yeast rather than bicarbonate of soda or baking powder .
This produces a really lovely , pillowy fluffy waffle , much , much less cakey than a normal waffle , which I prefer for breakfast .
It just seems a bit more appropriate .
So the first thing I've done is to warm up 350 millilitres of milk because the yeast needs a little bit of warmth to activate , and I'm using dried active yeast .
Um , and So what we do at the beginning is activate it by putting a little bit of milk into a bowl .
So I'm gonna put about 30 millilitres and then Sprinkle it with my yeast .
So that's just a round a teaspoon of yeast .
Um , and that'll be plenty .
And just give it a little mix with a whisk .
So I'm just gonna sit that to one side to do its thing .
And next up , I have two small free range eggs .
I've already separated them .
I've got my yolks in here and my whites here .
And first of all , I'm gonna just beat my whites until they're reaching a stiff peak .
Right , That's perfect .
So I'm just gonna put that to one side .
I'll come back to that later , but for now , I'm gonna turn my attention to my egg G .
So they're in this bowl , and to those I'm gonna add 60 grammes of sugar .
And then I have 85 grammes of melted butter .
Yeah , and then a splash of that warm milk .
So 20 or 30 millilitre would be fine and then beat that all together , and then once that's really well mixed .
I'm just gonna get the yeast mixture from earlier back and put that in the vault along with a teaspoon of vanilla and a good pinch of salt .
And give that a little mix .
And now it's time for the flour .
So I have 300 grammes of plain flour , and what I'm gonna do is add a bit of that .
Give it a mix , add a bit of milk , give it a mix and so on until I've used up all my flour and milk .
Doing it like this will ensure that you end up with a really nice smooth batter and you don't have any lumps of flour in it .
So my flour is all in and my milk's all in .
So now I need to put my eggs in , and this is gonna add a really nice lightness to this batter .
So I'm just gonna gently fold it in using a spatula , and by folding this in really gently , I'm gonna ensure that I don't knock out all the air from the egg white .
So I end up with really lovely , fluffy waffles .
And once all the egg white is nicely folded in , I'm just going to leave this to rise .
And so I'm gonna cover it up with Cling Film and leave it in a warm place for an hour and it should double in size , and that's when I'm gonna cook it .
My waffle mixture has been rising for an hour now , and it's doubled in size and it's looking really fluffy .
So it's time to get cooking .
Now I have this waffle machine .
You might have a slightly different one .
So the main thing is to check your manufacturer's instructions , and the most important thing is to make sure it's completely hot before you start .
Really , this is really important .
Otherwise you're gonna end up with a couple of really horrible limp waffles .
Start with .
So for now , I'm gonna open my waffle machine because it is already and I'm gonna use a half cup measure , um , to scoop out my dough .
You can use a ladle if you want .
The main thing is to not put too little in and not put too much too little .
You're gonna cook the bottom , but not the top and too much .
It's just gonna all explode .
I found that this is quite a good amount , so scoop it out and just pop it right in the middle of your waffle pan and then put the lid down and wait , and it'll take about three minutes .
And really , there's no way of knowing other than looking at it .
So every now and then after about three minutes , just give it a little peek .
Now , after three minutes , they should be lovely and golden and so carefully using a wooden utensil .
Nothing metal and scrapey .
Um , just gently lift them up .
This waff lines nice and nonstick .
So I didn't have to use any oil , so they should just come off quite easily .
So that's two delicious waffles down this mixture makes about eight waffles , so just keep going till you've made them off , right ?
So that's all my waffles are made , and I really love these for breakfast and brunch .
And one of my favourite things to put on them is a bit of really thick , creamy Greek yoghurt , some fresh fruit and some maple syrup .
And I'm gonna do that right now .
And there they are , my delicious yeast raised waffles .
I cannot wait to eat these , so I'm gonna have to do it right now .
Mm mm .
what I love about these waffles is they're not too sweet .
They're kind of bit more breakfasty , which means that if you really wanted to put a really naughty topping on it , it could handle it quite well .
But I really like it .
Quite simple , because I'm simple like that .
Anyway , I hope you've enjoyed this recipe .
I hope you give it a go and impress all your friends who come and stay around with these delicious waffles .
Um , I will be back next week with another recipe .
