Wild Orange Belgian Waffles

There is one thing I love in the morning and that is real Belgian waffles. It takes time to make the real ones, but it is worth it! Here is a great way to start your morning off.

Orange cinnamon Belgian waffles
adapted from King Arthur Flour's recipe
makes enough for four (number of waffles depend on the size of your waffle iron)

-1 c lukewarm whole milk
-6 T butter, melted
-3 T honey
-3/4 t salt
-1 t vanilla
-2 large eggs
-2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 T ground cinnamon
-1/2 c freshly squeezed orange juice, slightly warmed
-freshly grated zest of 1 large orange
-2 drops Spark Naturals Wild Orange essential oil
-1 1/2 t instant yeast
-pearl sugar, optional

1. Stir to combine all of the ingredients except the pearl sugar in a large bowl, allowing room for expansion.
2. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit at (warm) room temperature for an hour. The mixture will begin to bubble somewhat.
3. Preheat your waffle iron and coat lightly with cooking spray. Place enough batter in the center of your waffle iron to allow for expansion and sprinkle in the pearl sugar, if using. Cook for roughly 4-6 minutes until golden brown.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
Best with real maple syrup, or warm Nutella, or fresh fruit and cream.
