Recipe for a stormy fall day

  • 500 gr flour
  • 150 gr melted butter
  • 100 gr sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 20gr yeast
  • 1 bag of vanillesugar (7gr)
  • 75cl half water/milk

Make a dip in the flour. Dissolve the yeast in some of the water and add it to flour. Add the egg yolks, sugar , vanille sugar and melted butter to the flour. Add the water/milk. Mingle it all together. Mix the egg whites solid (with the salt) and then add them gently to the dough. The let the dough rest and rise for an hour so it can double in size.

Then pour the dough in the hot iron.

Result : Belgian waffles (the way the Belgians make them) and a cosy family afternoon!!

tip to make them lighter: add sparkling water rather than "normal" water in the dough.

@lilacspecs: ja lekker!
@jen: of course!
@anno: oh yes, either flour that rises automatically or yeast. You want them light and crispy. Hence the sparkling water, our secret touch.
@atbab: thanks!!!!!!!!!
