Raised Waffles

Yesterday when I was reading through my email, I came across this article on Tasting Table.  It was about a Brussels style Belgian waffle recipe from a restaurant in San Francisco.  I've always wanted to try yeasted or raised waffles.  On top of that this recipe interested me because it uses semolina flour as well as regular flour.

This was simple to veganize, just swap out the butter eggs for vegan versions. It was so fun to watch the batter double in size like bread dough during the 1.5 hour rise time. 

The texture of these waffles was quite different than anything I had tried before.  It was denser than a traditional waffle, but soft and chewy in the middle.  The outside was crunchy and perfect.  We both thought they were pretty amazing.
