The recipe I used back in (gasp!) 1997 was not this recipe. It was good, and it did use yeast (an essential ingredient for authentic Belgian waffles) . . . but it wasn't as totally fail-proof and delicious as this recipe. These waffles are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Crispaliscious.
My kids only want syrup on their waffles, which to me is a waste of a good Belgian. You can't go wrong with fresh strawberries and whipped cream (peaches are equally delicious). This time, I made a fruit compote with frozen raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. I sprinkled a tiny teaspoon of sugar on about two cups of frozen fruit and heated it in a lidded saucepan on low while the waffles were proofing. It tasted heavenly.
