    In 1-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave 1/4 cup of the milk on High 10 to 20 seconds or until 110°F to 115°F. Stir in yeast and 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. In 4-cup microwavable measuring cup, heat remaining 2 1/2 cups milk on High 2 to 3 minutes or until 120°F to 130°F.

    Spray Belgian waffle maker with cooking spray; heat waffle maker. Gently stir batter; spoon batter onto waffle maker. Close lid. Bake 4 minutes or until steaming stops and waffles are golden brown. Serve with syrup, whipped cream and blueberries.

Expert Tips

  • Fast-acting yeast calls for liquids that are slightly warmer than regular active dry yeast. The safest way to judge temperature is with a thermometer. These waffles are very easy to make…about the only way they will not perform is if the milk is too hot.
  • To make waffle batter ahead, fill storage container half full, cover loosely and refrigerate up to 24 hours; stir down if batter rises to top of container.
