Belgian Yeast Waffles and a Product Review

I love to have a hearty breakfast especially over the weekends. But it so happens that every weekend morning we are either running around to finish errands or wake up too late to have breakfast. Hearty breakfast menu in our household (whenever we make it, that is) is usually pancakes with syrup, idlis with chutney or sabudhana khichdi (ahem.. it’s probably been more than a year I made this dish).
Making Waffles for breakfast is probably something I wouldn’t even dream off to make at home. So when CSN Stores contacted me to do a product review, I was super excited and this time I knew exactly what I wanted to get. I got this Presto Belgian Waffle maker and after making waffles for 2 weekend breakfasts, I’m totally in love with it.

I used the Belgian yeast Waffle recipe from King Arthur flour website and the waffles turned out crispy on the outside and soft & yeasty on the inside. Batter can be refrigerated overnight making breakfast on a weekend morning possible and not a dream.

Recipe from KAF website
Ingredients:
All-purpose flour – 1 cup
Milk – 1½ cups
Butter – 6tbsp
Maple Syrup – 3tbsp
Salt – ¾ tsp
Vanilla extract – 1tsp
Eggs – 2, large
Yeast – 1 ½tsp

Method:
  • Heat milk until very hot (microwave for about 2-3 minutes depending on the power of your mw).
  • Pour into a large mixing bowl (make sure that the bowl is BIG enough to accommodate doubled batter the next day), and add butter, maple syrup, salt and vanilla. Stir until butter starts to melt and the mixture cooled down to lukewarm.
  • Add eggs, yeast and flour and mix until well combined. Cover the batter with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • At this point, batter can be used to make waffles or can be refrigerated overnight to make waffles next morning.
  • Preheat the waffle maker and following manufacturer’s directions, make the waffles. On my waffle maker; I used 1 cup of batter and cooked for about 5 minutes to get a perfectly cooked waffle. Enjoy right away with syrup and/or fruit.
These were probably the best waffles I ever ate and even my almost 3 year loved them. Will be making them often now.
I have to thank CSN Stores for giving me the opportunity to do the product review. The Presto Belgian Waffle Maker has a unique 180ยบ flip design that ensures that the batter spreads evenly for waffles that are crispy on the outside and soft, fluffy and tender on the inside. It has a countdown timer and digital display signals when baking time is up. It locks in a vertical position and stands on the side making it compact and easy to store.

Will keep you posted with other waffle recipes I make for our weekend breakfast or for dessert (???).
