  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and sugar. Beat the egg yolks into the yeast mixture, and mix into the dry ingredients. Stir in the vanilla extract and melted butter.

  • In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold into the waffle batter. Let stand in a warm place about 45 minutes, or until doubled in size.

  • Preheat a Belgian-style waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Place 3/4 to 1 cup of batter onto the hot iron; close the lid. Cook until the steaming subsides and the waffle is golden brown.

I put my waffle iron away two years ago and never used it again. Recently my teenager asked me to make waffles since I could not stand those boxed waffle mixes I turned to this site. I woke up this morning put the mix together and got back in bed with the Sunday paper while the mix rose. These are the best waffles ever. Even my ten year old who hates breakfast foods of any kind loved these. My neice who says she doesn't like waffles had two plates. My teen hasn't gotten up as of yet but when he does he will have a hot wonderful met-in-your-mouth waffle. The waffle iron is now out of retirement. Read More

Excellent waffles! I got a new Belgian waffle maker at the Black Friday sale yesterday and decided to use this recipe in it first. I was a little concerned about them being too eggy so I only used three eggs. We really liked the light airy texture yet crispy outsides. We ate them with butter and syrup or apple butter but I can't wait to try them with strawberries and whipped cream! My waffle maker must be a little smaller than the recipe author's because I got 6-1/2 waffles out of this recipe. The leftovers went into the freezer for a quick breakfast another day! Read More

This recipe was a little time consuming for the end result. They tasted great but not a whole lot different from say Bisquick. My husband couldn't even tell the difference. But they were still really good. I just don't know if they're different enough to make the prep time worth it. Also if you're looking for a crisp waffle this isn't the recipe But I like mine soft. I made it the night before and let it rise in the fridge-still turned out fine. It did make more waffles than the recipe indicated which wasn't a problem! I made the rest up and froze them. I tried one today after popping it in the toaster and it still tasted great! I would probably make this again but only if I have time to kill. Read More

This is the best yeast waffles I've been able to find so far. They do have to cook for a little while longer than usual to get the outside really crispy like we want. I'll keep looking for the "perfect" belgian waffle but will definately keep this one. Read More

I have tried other waffle recipes from this site and this by far is the best. Nice crunchy outside soft in the middle. The first time I tried this I followed the recipe...excellent. The 2nd time I tried it I didn't have the time or all of the ingredients...turned out great also..here is what I did the 2nd time. I didn't have time to whip the whites so I just added them whole. I also ran out of vanilla so I used immitation rum extract. It gave the waffles an awesome flavor. Also for the milk I always use non-fat milk so I added the sugar to the warm milk then sprinkled the yeast. It frothed up better that way. Kids thought these were the cream of the crop. Oh..I also had my waffle iron on 6 (hottest setting). Happy waffle making! Read More
