Almond waffles

It is not the first time that I make this recipe. I made a variation with chocolate here. However, I think that this time I enjoy them the most. Without the addition of chocolate you get the chance to taste the pure basic dough. Surprisingly, they really made an outstanding impression.
To give them a specific note, I added some pearl sugar that I found lost in my pantry on a bottom of a paper box. The crunchy and caramelized spots created by the pearl sugar after baking where the cherries of this cake.
I have not appreciated them that much in the beginning but when my kids asked for a 3rd portion I ate a full one myself so I can distinguish what makes them like them so much. They are soft, they almost melt into your mouth and the aroma of almond combined with vanilla makes them special.

  • 500ml warm milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 100g butter (melted)
  • 25g yeast
  • 400g all purpose flour
  • 100g almond powder
  • 50g sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla essence
  • a pinch of salt
  • 50g pearl sugar

  1. Mix all ingredients with a standing mixer.
  2. Let it raise for 1h at room temperature.
  3. Use a waffle maker to bake the waffles. Use a small ladle to measure the exact quantity needed for each waffle.
