  1. In stand mixer, combine yeast, granulated sugar, whole milk and water. Stir to combine and let yeast sit and activate for 5 minutes.
  2. Add in eggs honey, vanilla and salt and beat until well combined.
  3. Add in brown sugar and butter and beat until well combined.
  4. Add Flour last and knead until dough is formed and is smooth in consistency.
  5. Place dough in a medium greased bowl and cover tightly with saran wrap. Let rest for about 3 hours until dough has bulked up more than double in size. Punch dough down, place back in bowl, cover tightly with saran wrap and place in fridge over night. DO NO MIX IN YOUR BELGIAN PEARL SUGAR YET. That step comes in the morning.
  6. In the morning, heat up waffle iron.
Prepare Sweetened Whipped Cream
  1. Beat heavy cream on high and gradually add in sugar and vanilla until whipped cream is formed. You want it someone on the stiffer side.
Making waffles
  1. Remove dough from fridge, it will be very firm. Knead in the Belgian Pearl Sugars.
  2. Divide dough into 8-10 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  3. Place on greased waffle iron and cook until golden brown in color.
  4. I spread Nutella over my warm waffle, topped with Sweetened whipped cream sliced strawberries but the options are completely up to you!
