Yeasted Waffles

yeasted waffles 3

Do you want to know the perfect Sunday morning breakfast?  Well – it’s yeasted waffles.  Essentially you mix together almost all of the ingredients the night before – and in the morning you add a bit of baking soda and crack an egg – and you have waffle batter. Even better than that is that you house will smell like fresh baked bread!  Does it get any better than that?  And if you run your dishwasher the night before – you won’t even have any dishes to do!

This is the batter when you wake up in the morning – look at all of those yeast bubbles!

The best part is that they tasted even better than I expected – so you can’t beat that!   Enjoy!

  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/8 tsp. active dry yeast
  • 1 cup milk, warmed
  • 4 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda


1. Combine the water and yeast in a large mixing bowl and let stand for 5 minutes.

2. Add the milk, butter, salt, sugar and flour to the bowl.  Whisk until well blended and smooth.

3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature overnight.

4. When you are ready to make the waffles, preheat the waffle iron.

5.  Whisk the eggs and baking soda into the batter until smooth (the batter will be thin).

6. Fill waffle wells and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions.  Cook until crisp and golden.
