Belgian Waffles Mille-feuille For Mother's Day Brunch
My mother took great pleasure in showing her love for her family by serving well prepared homemade food.
Waffles were always on the menu when her grandchildren came for weekend visits.
I inherited her waffle machine some 8 years ago. Every time I use it I think of her.
BELGIAN WAFFLES MILLE-FEUILLE
Yields: 16 waffles
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, separated
2 cups milk
4 tablespoons melted butter
Pure Maple Syrup
michaelsdolce™ Raspberry Chocolate Jam
Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt into bowl.
Separate eggs and whip egg whites until stiff. Beat yolks in a separate bowl. Add the milk to the egg yolks and beat together.
Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, slowly beating until perfectly smooth. Add the melted butter and combine. Then fold in the egg whites.
Use the waffle maker as directed.
My machine is the Philips Deluxe Wafflemaker HL5360. I cook my waffles for 5 to 6 minutes depending on if I am serving them right away or storing them in the freezer.
When I serve them right away, I like them to be a bit crispy. If I am freezing them, I want to allow for a bit of cooking when they are being warmed (and crisped) in the toaster.
