Dutch Waffles

 

Dutch Waffles

Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley

 

For the dough:

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 tbsp yeast
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

 

Instructions:

 

  1. Combine the water and the yeast together and let it sit for ten minutes to become frothy and “activate.”
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, eggs, melted butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon and the yeast mixture.  Mix everything together until a dough is formed.
  3. Remove the dough onto your work surface and knead until it becomes a smooth dough.  Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for 10-20 minutes before cooking.

 

For The Molasses Caramel:

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup dark molasses
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

 

Instructions:

 

  1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and carefully stir to incorporate.
  3. Using a pastry brush dip in water, wash down the sides of the pan to ensure to sugar crystals are present on the inside wall of the pan,
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil.  Continue boiling until a soft ball stage is reached.  I like to use the old fashioned test method and drop some of the boiling hot syrup into cold water.  When the syrup mixture holds together like a “soft ball” it’s ready and can be removed from the heat.

 

To Assemble the Dutch Waffles:

 

Instructions:

 

  1. Preheat your Dutch waffle/pizelle maker.
  2. Cut a large enough piece of the prepared dough, slightly flatten and press the dough into the waffle maker.
  3. Close the lid and if necessary, hold the waffle maker closed to prevent the dough from rising but rather to force it to expand.
  4. Continue cooking the dough until it is golden brown.
  5. Remove the cooked waffle and being careful not to burn yourself, use a long seated blade and cut the waffle in half lengthwise like a sandwich, creating two halves.
  6. Spread the molasses caramel in the center of one half of the waffle and sandwich the two half back together to create your cookie.
  7. If wanted, you could use a round cookie cutter and cut the Dutch waffles into perfect rounds.
  8. Let them cool, serve by themselves or with your favorite hot drink  Enjoy!
