1. Preheat the waffle press until the green ‘READY’ light illuminates.
  2. Mix warm milk, yeast and 1 teaspoon of sugar together and leave for 15 minutes to activate.
  3. In a large bowl mix together flour, butter, 1 tablespoon of sugar, vanilla paste, egg and salt until it is well combined. Add milk mixture and mix well to form dough; once a ball has formed, allow to rest for 10 minutes, and then mix in the pearl sugar.
  4. Roll 100 gram balls of dough, flatten them slightly and place them into the waffle press. Lower the lid, lock it down and cook for 5 minutes or until desired doneness. Remove with silicon tongs.
  5. Serve straight away with fresh berries, syrup or ice cream.

TIP: Make sure the green ‘READY’ light is illuminated before cooking another batch.

TIP: Pearl sugar is a traditional rock sugar. Alternatively, crush sugar cubes into pearl like clusters.
