Here’s a classic yeasted (known as “Belgian”-style) waffle. For an interesting (if inauthentic) twist, try adding a tablespoon or so of maple syrup directly to the batter!
1 cup (5 ounces) all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon instant yeast
3/4 cup (6 ounces) milk
3 tablespoons (1.5 ounces) butter
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Put the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Heat the milk in a small saucepan, then add the butter and stir until melted. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature. Add the egg, maple syrup and vanilla and whisk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk lightly. Leave the mixture a bit lumpy. Let sit for one hour until bubbly, then use — or for better flavor, refrigerate the batter overnight.
