These Belgian waffles from all recipes member , Bobby Joe are the real deal .
They get their height , not from baking powder or soda , but from yeast .
Because of the yeast , it takes a little more time for the batter to come together .
But the flavor and crisp edges make it well worth the effort .
Let's begin by activating the yeast .
Add a quarter ounce of active dry yeast to a quarter cup of warm milk .
It should be about 100 and 10 degrees .
Let this sit until it starts to look creamy .
It will take about 10 minutes .
Now , in a large bowl with three egg yolks add three quarters of a cup of melted butter that's been cooled to lukewarm and another quarter cup of warm milk .
You want to be sure the milk and butter aren't too hot or else they can kill the yeast whisk it together , add the yeast mixture .
Half a cup of granulated sugar .
Two teaspoons of vanilla extract 1.5 teaspoons of salt and whisk it all together next .
Alternating wet and dry in small portions .
Stir in another 2.5 cups of warm milk , alternating with four cups of all purpose flour .
Yeah , and ending with the flour in another bowl .
Beat three egg whites with an electric mixer until they form soft peaks .
Fold the beaten egg whites gently into the batter .
Cover the batter with plastic wrap , place it in a warm spot and let it rise until it's doubled in volume .
It should take about one hour .
Several all recipes members report success making the batter the night before and keeping it in the fridge overnight .
So they don't have to wait so long to get their waffle fixed in the morning when you're ready to cook the waffles , preheat your waffle iron brush or spray the plates with a little vegetable oil and spoon enough batter for one waffle into the iron following the instructions for your own waffle iron .
But for many , it's about half a cup or so close the lid and bake until the batter stops steaming and the waffle is golden brown .
You can serve each waffle as it comes off the iron or keep them warm in a 200 degree oven while you bake .
The remaining waffles serve these Belgian waffles with fruit whipped cream and maple syrup or honey .
