Hot breakfasts are a MUST for my family on Saturday or Sunday mornings. We love waking up, making coffee and cooking up something delicious. I have been on the search for the perfect waffle recipe. I had read some rumblings about yeasted waffles online and finally decided to give it a go! I will never make another kind of waffles! These are light, crispy and delicious. You can make the batter the night before and it will even keep in the fridge for a few days!
1/2 teaspoon Instant Yeast
2 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 Cups Milk
1 Stick Butter, Melted and Cooled
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 EggsCombine the dry ingredients, then the milk, and finally the melted and cooled butter and vanilla.
Cover with plastic wrap and store in fridge (or at room temperature). Pre heat your waffle iron.
Separate the eggs (or not, it’s up to you) and stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Stir these gently into the batter as well. Spread batter onto iron and bake 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately or keep them warm in a 200-300 degree preheated oven. Trust me, these won’t last long!
