Delicious flavored citrus orange waffles where you dissolve the yeast in freshly squeezed, warmed orange juice.
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, warmed to about 120 degrees
1/2 cup low fat soy milk, at room temperature
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon orange oil or 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Dissolve yeast in warm orange juice and let sit for 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and stir well for several minutes. Let batter rest, covered, in a warm spot for 30 minutes.
Heat waffle iron, pour in the appropriate amount of batter for your specific model, and spread to the edges of the waffle iron. Close and cook until gently browned.
This batter burns easily; so set your waffle iron on a low setting. If your waffle iron doesn't have a temperature setting, peek to see if the waffles are done when the waffle maker opens easily.
