Whole grain yeasted waffles

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 2 cups whole milk, warmed
  • 8 tbsp. salted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 3 tsp. sugar
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds

Instructions

  1. Add yeast to warm water and stir gently to mix. Let stand until yeast is fully dissolved and frothy, about 5-10 minutes.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine milk, butter, sugar and flour. Mix thoroughly using the whisk attachment. Cover with a clean kitchen towel and place in a warm, draft-free place for at least an hour, up to overnight.
  3. When you are ready to make the waffles, mix eggs, baking soda, and flax together in a small bowl and whisk well. Add egg mixture to yeasted batter and stir gently using a folding pattern to combine thoroughly.
  4. Heat a waffle iron (we use a Belgium waffle maker) and cook waffles according to manufacturer's instructions. Drizzle with topping of choice--we're fans of sliced strawberries and homemade whipped cream.
