Waffles, a food that has gone through the ages, yet has still remained popular to this day, with good reason. They're easy, quick and can take on a plethora of toppings, sweet or savoury.

What was new to me, though, was using yeast instead of baking powder was amazing!

The waffles are very light and have crispy shells with great structure that stay even after the waffles have cooled.

The inside is moist and springy, a great counterpart to the shell.

There will be a prevalent smell of yeast, but the mellow scent and flavour pairs so well with maple syrup, my go-to topping for these yeast waffles.
