Mmmmm, these waffles will make you fat!

But who cares, it's Sunday.
I inherited a waffle iron a few years ago and it marinated, forgotten, in a dusty confection on the floor of my pantry until the hubs went on a cleaning streak. It was unearthed and stared at for two weeks before I got brave enough to make waffles. It ain't war, but it sure seems like a lot of work, right? 
This morning I had a burst of curiosity and went for it. And succeeded! 
If you too would like to get fat, just find a waffle iron and whip up the following:

2 egg yolks 

5 tablespoons white sugar 
1 1/2 teaspooons vanilla extract 
1/2 cup butter, melted (yes, a half a CUP of butter. I told you, you won't get skinny)
1 teaspoon salt 
2 3/4 cups flour 
2 cups warm milk
1 tablespoon active dry yeast 
2 egg whites 
In a large bowl, beat together egg yolks and sugar. Beat in vanilla extract, butter and salt. Alternately mix in flour and milk until blended well. Add the yeast. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they have formed soft peaks. Fold egg whites into batter and let stand for 30 minutes.
Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown and fluffy, which I figured out is about 3 minutes, 30 seconds.
