Directions

  1. Sprinkle the yeast and white sugar over warm milk in a small bowl. The milk should be no more than 100 degrees F (40 degrees C). Let stand for 15 minutes until the yeast softens and begins to form a creamy foam.
  2. Whisk the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract into the yeast mixture until evenly blended; set aside. Stir together the flour and salt in a separate large bowl, and make a well in the center. Pour the egg mixture into the well, then stir in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms. Cover with a light cloth and let rise in a warm place (80 to 95 degrees F (27 to 35 degrees C)) until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes. Gently mix in the pearl sugar.
  3. Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Place a baseball-size ball of dough on the preheated waffle iron. Cook waffles until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough. Allow waffles to cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.

This was a hit with my friends. For the pearl sugar I caramelized the sugar over medium heat in a sauce pan then poured it out onto a cookie sheet and let it cool. Then I shattered the sheet and used the shards as the pearls. It works very well. I suggest using a medium low heat in the waffle iron. That way when you are making several waffles you will not burn the sugar from previous waffles.

My husband and I really enjoyed these. We put strawberries and strawberry syrup on them. I ordered the Lars Belgium Pearl sugar from Amazon. It takes a whole package for one recipe. I used a wooden scewer to scrape the hardened up sugar out of my waffle iron for cleanup.

The texture is good BUT this recipe has TOO MUCH oil in it!!!!! The dough started leaching oil as it sits and my waffle iron was flooded with a pool of oil when the waffles were cooking. A total disaster! I would say just cut back on the oil say 1/2 cup and you'll be fine.
