of you who don’t already know Waffle Love is a craze going around Utah and Salt
Lake Counties. They have a truck that travels here and there and you can follow
them on facebook and istagram and if you don’t want to wait for them to come
near you, then they just got a new store in Provo. They are very expensive,
husband absolutely spoiled me for Valentine’s Day! The main thing I gave him
was a little Waffle Love. He had never tried it and so I thought I’d give him a
little taste. Now, I know that it was a little crazy since these waffles are
super rich and technically should be a dessert. Nevertheless I was determined!
Here is what we did and we thought it tasted quite good!! We had them for
dinner too! Just so you know, they were awesome!! First thing you should know is
these are not your regular waffles, instead of batter, they are made from a dough, that
needs to rise. I was shocked! Also, you need special sugar (there are is a lot
of sugar in these) Belgian pearl sugar. I got my sugar online at amazon.com but
just so you know it is quite expensive for how much sugar you get.
whole milk, scalded and cooled to warm milk
tablespoons water, warmed
teaspoons instant yeast
eggs, lightly whisked
unsalted butter, softened
tablespoon brown sugar
tablespoons white sugar
cups belgian pearl sugar
the 2 teaspoons of sugar to the milk and water and add the yeast, stirring to
combine. Allow the yeast to proof, or get foamy and puffy.
a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugars and then add the eggs, honey
and vanilla. Stir together and add the yeast mixture.
switch to the dough hook and add 2 cups of flour. Mix until the dough is
thoroughly incorporated, and add the remaining flour, cover with plastic wrap
and allow to rest for 4 hours, up to 24 hours.
Then punch down and separate into 8 balls. Then knead in pearl sugar. Which was
more difficult than you would think. Matt and I knead the sugar in for a very
long time before we got it to stick and stay in the dough.
Place on a hot, greased waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and serve with
Nutella, whipped cream and fresh berries.
too sweet, make your own. 3 cups of whipping cream, 3-5 tablespoons of powdered
sugar or until desired sweetness. Whip in stand mixer with whisk until it forms
peaks which is 3-5 minutes.
