Belgian Waffles

1 pkg dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
2 Cups lukewarm milk

4 eggs, separated

1 tsp vanilla


2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbsp sugar

1/2 cup melted butter

In a large bowl, sprinkle the yeast over the warm milk and stir.  Beat the yolks only and add them to the yeast mixture.  Add the vanilla to the mixture.  In a separate bowl, mix the flour, salt and sugar.  Add these to the liquid mix you have in the other bowl.  Stir in the melted butter.  In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they are stiff.  Fold these into the batter.  Let the mixture stand in a warm place until it doubles (normally about 45 minutes or more).  Scoop the mixture into your favorite Belgian waffle cooker and cook them.  Enjoy with your favorite toppings.
