Brussels-Style Waffles
(Gaufres Bruxelloises)
What You Need:
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2½ cups lukewarm milk (110°F to 115°F)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 egg whites
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled and whipped
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and hulled

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a small bowl sprinkle the yeast and a pinch of sugar over ½ cup of the lukewarm milk. Let the mixture stand for 2 or 3 minutes, then stir to blend the yeast and milk thoroughly.

    2. Set the bowl in a warm, draft-free place such as an unlighted oven for about 5 minutes, or until the yeast bubbles up and the mixture almost doubles in volume.

    3. Sift the flour, the remaining sugar and the salt into a deep mixing bowl. Pour in the yeast mixture and the remaining 2 cups of lukewarm milk, and with a large spoon stir until the batter is smooth.

    4. Then thoroughly stir in the egg yolks, vanilla and the butter. Cover the bowl loosely with a kitchen towel and set it aside to rest in the warm, draft-free place for 30 minutes.

    5. Following the manufacturers' directions, preheat a waffle iron (approximately 6 by 11 inches) to moderate. With a wire whisk or a rotary or electric beater, beat the egg whites until they are stiff enough to stand in unwavering peaks on the beater when it is lifted from the bowl.

    6. Stir the batter with a rubber spatula, add the egg whites and fold them into the batter gently but thoroughly.

    7. Pour 1½ cups of the batter into the center of the hot waffle iron. Reduce the heat to moderately low, close the iron, and bake for 5 minutes, or until the steaming stops and the waffle is golden brown on both sides.

    8. You can peek at the waffle to check its color after 3 minutes or so, but do not open the cover earlier or the wafflemay stick to the grid.

    9. Serve at once, sprinkled with confectioners' sugar and accompanied by separate bowls of whipped cream and strawberries.
    Serving Size: about 6 waffles
