WHATS FOR DINNER // LIEGE WAFFLES
waffle trucks are on every corner these days. the waffles are really good but the lines are really long and it costs me a small fortune to feed my family waffles. so after finding several ideas I came up with a recipe. it’s super easy and tastes identical to what you can buy at the truck.
line up of ingredients
what your yeast mixture should look like
dough after everything is combined
cover and let rise
3/4 cup heavy cream (heated)
2 T. warm water
1 1/2 t. sugar (for yeast mixture)
2 t. instant yeast
1 cup butter (softened)
2 T. sugar
1 T. brown sugar
3 T. honey
3 t. vanilla
4 cups flour
1 box pearl sugar (i get the sugar from ikea but its swedish and a little smaller you can order the belgian on amazon)
heat cream in microwave for 1 1/2 minutes until hot, let cool until warm to the touch. add 1 1/2 t. sugar, water and yeast to the cream. stir to combine and let yeast rest until it foams up.
in another bowl beat butter and sugars. add eggs, vanilla and honey. beat together then add yeast mixture. place in kitchen aid using dough hook and add flour 2 cups at a time. cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for at least 3 hours up to 24 hours. knead in pearl sugar. separate into 12 balls and cook until golden brown.
we top ours with cookie butter, berries and a spoonful of homemade whipped cream. i make the dough and leave it on the counter overnight and cook them up in the morning to make breakfast time quick and easy. my kids think i’m the greatest when i make these.
