Delicious! Absolutely yummy! These waffles are actually easier to make then you'd think, the only reason people consider them hard to make is because of the time it takes. But these waffles are well worth the wait. The only thing is you will only need one waffle to fill you up, and maple syrup and sweetened whip cream should not be on your table when you eat these. They are already VERY sweet. But so good, and crunchy, and all around good! :)
Warm 1 cup milk to lukewarm.
Place the milk into a big bowl, and whisk 2 1/2 tsp. instant dry yeast into the milk. Let sit for 5 minutes.
Add to the milk 4 cups of flour...
6 tbsp. brown sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla extract...
1/2 tbsp. cinnamon....
And one generous pinch of salt.
Mix until it is a sticky dough.
Add 1 1/4 cup softened butter, and mix until just combined.
Cover the dough and let rest for 2 1/2 hours.
Once the dough has set measure out 1 cup of Belgian Pearl Sugar
Fold the Belgian Pearl Sugar into the dough.
Divide the dough into 10 portions. Let rest for 15 minutes while you preheat the waffle iron.
If you have a waffle iron like the one I have
They'll come out golden and sizzling hot. Be careful, as hot sugar is REALLY hot. Use a fork or tongs to take them out.
This is a fancy meal, so set your table nice and fancy.
Place yummy toppings like raspberries, Saskatoons, apples, whipped cream with no sugar added, and anything else you want on the table. Just remember the waffles are super sugary, and you don't need a lot more sugar, like you do for regular waffles.
I used chopped pecans, shredded coconut, whipped cream, and apple slices. Mmm... delicious! :)
I got this recipe from the back of the bag of Belgian Pearl Sugar .
