If you have never had a waffle recipe made with yeast before, you don’t know what you are missing! Let me fill you in. Image it: a waffle that is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, with buttery deliciousness in each and every bite. Really. These are so good all on their own that we only occasionally use real maple syrup. We never have to add a pat of butter on the top. It isn’t often you can declare something absolute perfection just as it is, but there you go. These yeasted waffles really are perfect.
It’s easy to throw this Overnight Waffles recipe together. Just get started the night before you need them. The most time consuming part is waiting for the butter to melt. Seriously, that’s the most you’ll have to fuss in the evening. After that, you combine together the ingredients it lists below. Cover it and let the yeast work its magic while you sleep. The next morning, you add the remaining ingredient, give it a little stir, and get that waffle iron ready! Personally, I like to leave my waffle on the iron for a little longer because I like it to darken a little and get quite crisp. But that’s just me.
This is the only way I ever make waffles. It is a favorite of our boys–and of our own. I typically make these on a Sunday night, not because I am that much a creature of routine, but because the youngest, age 5, always seems to request them then. So, why not? Serve it with a side of fresh fruit for a great, memorable start to the day! They are from (affiliate link) How to Cook Everything: Simple Recipes for Great Food by Mark Bittman. Find it, buy it, it is a wonderful cookbook. It is a hefty volume but so worth the space it takes up on my cookbook shelf.
