Gofres (Belgium Sugar Waffles)

Batter 1:
1¼ ounce fresh cake yeast or 2 ½ package active dry yeast
¼ cup warm water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1/3 cup warm milk

Batter 2:
9 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
6 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
pinch of salt
1 tbsp granulated sugar
½ cup pearl sugar or ¾ cup crushed sugar cubes

For Batter 1: In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm water with 1 tbsp of the flour and the sugar. Let stand for 5 minutes until foamy.

Sift the remaining flour into a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast mixture, egg and milk. Mix to make a smooth batter. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until the batter has doubled or tripled in volume.

For Batter 2: In a medium-size bowl, mix the butter, flour, salt, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon (if using), granulated sugar and pearl sugar into a paste.

With hands, work the two batters together. Shape the dough into 10 balls; flatten each ball then dust lightly with flour.

Bake in a medium-hot waffle iron. If the iron is too hot the sugar will burn. Bake until the waffles are golden brown but still soft, 3 to 4 minutes.

  1. Others such as tomato paste, modified food starch, salt, yeast extract, caramel color, hydrolized soy protein, hydrolized yeast protein, beef fat, flavoring,
    hydrolyzed wheat gluten, dextrose are ingredients containing hidden MSG.
    You would never dream of leaving something cooking on your stove-top all day while you were
    at work, but the slow cooker enables just that.
    cup of organic beef juice (grease-extracted), preferably left-over from cooking a roast or prime rib.
