Chef Eddy Van Damme has this waffle that he does, That is out of this world. On his website he goes into explaining about the way the Belgium people have there waffles, How they are served as a dessert. He goes into great detail about how they are made and all that stuff. Also on his website, are some of the most fantastic desserts that I've ever seen. You all really need to check it out. His Web address is: http://www.chefeddy.com.
I did these waffles for dinner last nite. And the smell of the vanilla bean, and yeast over whelmed the neighborhood. I know this is NOT my recipe, however, It is so great, you really have to try it. I would even make this for people that I don't like, and make more for the people that I do like.
- Getting it all together!
- Since yeast is involved with this type of waffle it takes time to for this batter to reach perfection, therefore, if you are planning to serve this type of waffle for breakfast it is best to make these during the day and simply freeze them. Defrosting is quick and once they come out of the toaster they are still very good. If you serve them for dessert or an afternoon snack make them fresh!
