    Classic Belgian Waffles
    Makes About 8 Waffles Depending on Waffle Iron Used
    By Chef Jamie Roraback

    1 Tbsp. Dry Yeast
    ½ Cup Warm Water
    2 Cups Warm Milk
    1 tsp. Sugar
    1 Stick Butter-melted
    2  Egg Yolks
    2 Cups All Purpose Flour
    1 tsp. Salt
    Pinch  Baking Powder
    2 Egg Whites

    · In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the yeast, warm water, warm milk, sugar, melted butter and egg yolks until smooth. Sift the flour, salt and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the liquid ingredients and mix just until smooth. Let batter sit at room temperature about 1 hour or until it rises slightly and becomes frothy.(The batter can also be refrigerated overnight  instead of leaving it out at room temperature and can be finished the next morning.)

    · Preheat waffle irons. Whip the egg whites until stiff. Fold the whites into the batter until thoroughly mixed. Cook the waffles in the greased, preheated waffle iron according to manufacturers instructions. Serve with whipped butter and maple, or seasonal fruit and whipped cream….or ice cream! Enjoy
