Overnight Yeasted Waffles

This restaurant quality waffle is to-do-for!
The batter just gets better the long it sits. It will become your new favorite.

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. 

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.

This unique waffle batter tastes better the longer it sits! Yeast is in the batter so it makes a rich, crispy, yet soft and tender middle kind of waffle. It will become your new favorite.


  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 T sugar
  • 1 pkg active dry yeast
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 T vanilla extract


  1. In a bowl combine all of the dry ingredients and stir. Gently add in the wet ingredients until just combined.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap or a lid and let it sit in the fridge. Chill overnight or up to 24 hours. If running low on time a few hours covered on the counter works too.
  3. Before using, stir the batter.
  4. Preheat the waffle maker and spray generously with cooking spray. When hot, place 3/4 cup of waffle batter into the griddle and cook until golden brown.
  5. To keep waffles warm while cooking, place them on a baking sheet and place in a 200 degree warm oven.
  6. This recipe makes 5-7 waffles depending on the size of your waffle maker.
