Brussels Waffles Part 2

14 Mar

Life is creeping back into Vancouver as spring is almost here. Everywhere I go, I can see flower buds, blooming flowers and chirping birdies. Vancouver is once again pretty in pink and white with all the cherry blossoms blooming.

I have been hanging out with friends again for coffee and dessert. Coffee and dessert is a popular culture in Vancouver as friends gather to socialize and mingle. On the weekend a couple of friends and I went to Nero Belgian Waffle Bar on Robson. They have amazing waffles. They serve the Liege and Brussels waffles with all sorts of combinations ranging from fruit to chocolate. Since I have a waffle maker, I decided to make use of it. Initially it was a bit intimidating as I was not sure how to use it but after making the Liege Waffles I was hooked. I began searching the net for recipes and found a perfect one from Chef Eddy Van Damm. His recipe was perfect.

To make the waffles,
1. Combine the sparkling water, milk, yeast, Vanilla bean paste, yolks sugar and salt.
2. Sift and add the flour and whisk until smooth.
3. Add the melted butter.
4. Whip the egg whites to medium firm peaks and fold into the milk mixture.
5. Cover and let rise will double about 40 minutes.
6. Use a well heated iron.

Voila:
