Shorty after Ethan and I got married we purchased a waffle maker.
He is a sweet breakfast person, while I am more savory, but we LOVE to have breakfast for dinner. We whip up some waffles, bacon, runny eggs, & a fruit salad.
It is perfect. We almost always have the ingredients and it something fun for us to make together.
These waffles are delicious and I love that you make the batter ahead of time, so when it is time for dinner or breakfast, it takes another step away. If you are making them for breakfast, make them the night before, and if you are making them for dinner, whip them up in the morning.
These could not be easier to make, don’t be intimidated by the yeast. They give such an incredible flavor to already delicious waffles.
- ½ cup of Warm Water
- 1 package of Red Star Dry-Active Yeast
- 2 cups of Milk
- ½ cup of Butter, melted
- 2 cups of Flour
- 2 Eggs, large
- 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
- ¼ teaspoon of Baking Soda
- In the bowl of your stand mixer, stir together the warm water and yeast. Let sit for 5 minutes.
- Add the milk, butter, flour, eggs, and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
- Cover with plastic wrap and let sit overnight or for 8 hours.
- Stir in the baking soda, the batter will deflate and be the thin consistency of yogurt.
- Spoon into your waffle iron according to the directions. We use a heaping ⅓ cup for about 3 minutes.
