Overnight Yeasted Waffles


This photo and recipe comes courtesy of Lovin' From the Oven.  She gave me the great idea for these waffles and clearly, they did not disappoint.

Yesterday afternoon I left the kids with Grandma who came down for the day and headed to my friend's house for an afternoon of assembling wedding invitations.  It was good to get out of the house (without kids) and have some adult conservation.  She is getting married in May and is ubber-creative, so we just followed her lead and got to work.

And she also fed us really, really well.  (A to-die-for enchilada recipe coming soon.)

In all that excitement I left my camera there.  So Lovin' From the Oven helped me out today.  If you are a person afraid of yeast, this is the recipe to start with, as you do nothing but throw it into the batter. 

People, these waffles are restaurant quality.  Crispy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.  Please try them!  I'm throwing away all old waffle recipes I have and replacing them with this one.

Overnight Yeasted Waffles
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 package active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a bowl combine all dry ingredients and stir.  Gently add in wet ingredients, stirring until just combined.  Cover with plastic wrap or a lid and place in the fridge.  Chill overnight or up to 24 hours.

Before using the next morning, stir batter.  Place 3/4 c. of the batter onto hot waffle iron.  Keep waffles warm on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven.  Makes 7 waffles (with a round waffle maker, could be less if using a large square one.)

I'm headed to the kitchen now to pull out the three remaining waffles from the freezer to heat up for breakfast.  The kids are calling and I'm hungry.

See ya!

  4. Those look amazing and I love the idea of yeast in them. I bet they'd be delicious with little mini chocolate chips in the too :)
