These fluffy Belgian waffles are well worth the extra time and effort it takes to make them. They are thicker than traditional waffles with a cakey texture. Waffles freeze really well. Double or triple this recipe and, after they have cooled, arrange the waffles that you wish to freeze in a single layer on a baking sheet and place the baking sheet in your freezer. Once the waffles are individually frozen, you can transfer them to a freezer bag to pull out as needed. Simply reheat them in the slot of a toaster or in the oven. Follow the recipe here, or slather with sugar-free jam and a dollop of fat-free whipped topping for a creamy garnish.

Instructions

  1. Sprinkle yeast over 1/4 cup milk and let sit 5 minutes.
