  • Vanilla yogurt, creme fraiche, or whipped cream (optional)
  • Chopped candied ginger and/or freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • Directions

    1. In a small saucepan heat milk over medium heat just until simmering (small bubbles on the surface); remove from heat. Place green tea in an infuser (or place on a 4-inch square of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth and tie with 100-percent-cotton string.) Add tea to hot milk and steep for 5 minutes; remove tea and discard. Set milk aside to cool slightly.
    2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl lightly beat egg yolks with a whisk. Whisk in the warm milk, yogurt, shortening, and fresh ginger. Add yolk mixture all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened (batter should be slightly lumpy).
    3. In a clean large mixing bowl beat egg whites with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form(tips stand straight). Stir a spoonful of whites into batter to lighten. Gently fold in the remaining whites.
    4. Add batter to a preheated, lightly greased Belgian or regular waffle baker according to manufacturer's directions. Close lid quickly; do not open until done. Bake according to manufacturer's directions. When done, use a fork to lift waffle off the grid. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm with Summer Peach Sauce. If desired, garnish with chopped peaches, yogurt, and/or candied ginger.
