The 'real' belgian waffle-Gaufre de Bruxelles

 Got my new waffle maker for Christmas this year plus a ton of other presents from mum and dad, of course. This waffle maker of course, has been something I have wanted for a while now since the last one I have got rid of. The rotating waffle iron really does make a difference when you want to make true blue Belgian Waffle.

Twas the night after Christmas, operations Waffle dinner began. And it was delicious....
The waffle has a light airy texture, crispy on the outside, slight chew on the inside. We had two whole waffle leftovers and I heated them in the toaster oven the next day for breakfast. Delicious. Way better than those store bought frozen waffle.

Belgian Waffle Recipe
(Makes 6-8, depending on the size of your waffle iron)
2 cups of flour
8 Tbsp butter
1 3/4 cup of whole milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1Tbsp sugar

 1. Heat milk and butter in the microwave oven till butter is melted and milk is warm. Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, and yeast. Stir to mix well.
3. Make a hole in the center. Add in milk and stir to combine. Add in beaten eggs and vanilla. Stir with a spatula till eggs mix and batter is combined.
4) Place a cling wrap over large bowl and let rest in the fridge overnight.
 5) The next day, preheat the waffle maker per manufacturer's instructions. Bring out the waffle batter. Stir with spatula to deflate the batter.
 6) Once iron is hot, pour in 3/4 to 1 cup of batter into the center of waffle iron. Let cook till golden.
7) Serve waffles with butter and maple syrup or with berries and cream, nutella, banana, and chopped nuts.
