Servings 8 waffles


  • Waffle Iron


  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup whole milk warmed to bout 90 F
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 7 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3/4 cup sparkling water


  • Dissolve yeast in lukewarm milk and cover and rest for 20 minutes or until bubbles appear.
  • Separate the eggs, adding the egg yolks to the yeasted milk, along with the melted butter, vanilla extract, and dry ingredients (flour, salt, sugar). Set egg whites aside.
  • Mix well using a rubber spatula, then cover the bowl and let the batter rest in a warm place until the dough has doubled in size (roughly one hour, or up to overnight in the refrigerator covered in plastic wrap).
  • Preheat your belgian waffle maker.
  • Beat the egg whites until frothy, then add the beaten egg whites and sparkling water to the yeast dough to make it runny.
  • Spray the preheated waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray, then pour 1 cup batter into the hot waffle iron and cook the Belgian waffle batter until your waffle is golden brown and crispy.
  • For best results, eat immediately dusted with powdered sugar!
  • If you are making waffles for a crowd, put your homemade waffles on a baking sheet in an oven preheated to 200 F to keep warm.
