Opening day(s)

Dilute the yeast in a small quantity of warm milk.

Make a yeast dough with 800g flour, the diluted yeast, 5dl milk, the vanilla sugar and the whole eggs.

Allow the dough to rise for 15 minutes at room temperature. Next, add the margarine or softened butter, the honey, 200g flour, the salt, the cinnamon or vanilla, along with the bicarbonate of soda.

Knead the mixture to obtain a smooth dough and allow to rise again for 10 minutes in a mild place.

Next, fold into the pearl sugar and divide the dough into 90 to 140g pieces, depending on the size of the waffle iron.

Pre-heat the waffle iron for a few minutes (it has to be very hot, so that the waffles don’t stick!).
