Ever since I have had the chance to go to Saul’s Delicatessen in North Berkeley Gourmet Ghetto, I have fallen in love with their yeast-raised waffle. Everyone loves a good waffle, but this yeast-raised waffle was sooooo extraordinary – so fluffy and light, but so crispy at the same time! These waffles did not have anything else, other than a square of butter and maple syrup, but they were to die for!
But now, I have devised my very own yeast-raised waffle recipe, inspired by Saul’s! And, for good measure, I added dark chocolate chips (because they are my Achille’s heel)! Waffles are for sharing, so please enjoy my recipe – with your children, parents, friends, and/or partner. 🙂
Trust me, it is so simple, but you feel like a master chef~~
Makes about 6 Belgian-style waffles, or 12 standard waffles
