Liège waffles

As you probably know, Belgium is known for its waffles. The most common ones are the Liège waffles, with sugar, or the Brussels waffles, the more "normal" ones. Waffles are actually easy to make. I remember making them since I'm a little kid. I'm going to share with you the Liège waffles because that's where I am from and to me, they're the best.

- 4 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups margarine
- 7 tablespoons of yeast
- 3 eggs
- a little bit of salt
- a little pack of vanilla sugar
- one little cup of room temperature water

What to do
- Poor the flour in a big bowl and dig a well in the middle
- Put the crumbled yeast in that well and cover it with warm water; let it rest for about 10 minutes until the yeast "bubbles"
- Whip the eggs (both the yellow and white parts) in another bowl then incorporate them in the mix
- Incorporate the soft but not hot margarine
- Add the salt and knead the mix
- Let the mix rest for from an hour to two hours and a half until the mix get twice bigger
- Add the sugar and then cook waffle by waffle in a waffle maker, for about 2 minutes each

If you want to make it more special, when you take the waffles out of the waffle maker, you can put a knife all the way through the waffle and in the hole, incorporate a chocolate bar.
