Ingredients

  • 2 1/8 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup maple sugar
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm milk
  • 4 tbsp medium eggs or one whole egg and one egg yolk, beaten
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, tempered, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup maple flakes

Method

  1. In a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment to mix the flour, maple sugar, and salt.
  2. Dilute the yeast in the warm milk and add to the dry mixture. Add the eggs and mix until the dough comes away from the bowl. Add the butter piece by piece and mix on medium speed until smooth (about 10 minutes).
  3. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and let the dough rise until it doubles in volume (about 1 hour).
  4. Once the dough has risen, turn the dough hook at low speed while adding the maple flakes.
  5. Put the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and roll out to a thickness of 1 cm (3/8 in). Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Use a cookie cutter to make 10 cm (4 in) circles, or to the size of your waffle iron.
  7. Preheat waffle iron to medium.
  8. Put dough circles into the waffle iron and cook each about 2½ minutes, depending on your appliance’s power.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
