Overnight Yeast Waffles- an overnight rise from yeast gives these waffles an extra dose of flavor and a wonderful crispiness on the outside.
Make the batter the night before and it only takes minutes to make a delicious waffle breakfast that tastes as good as your favorite diner waffles.
I like to top these waffles with butter and maple syrup. Fresh berries are also delicious as is apple butter. To really make them decadent, top them with a little whipped cream. Heavenly!
The yeast not only flavors the waffles, it gives them a little chewiness and really enhances the texture.
These Overnight Yeast Waffles are perfect for when you have overnight guests. There’s hardly any work to do in the morning and you can have hot waffles on the table in just minutes.
There’s only a teaspoon of sugar in the batter so you’ll want to give these waffles a heavy dousing with maple syrup.
RECIPE TIP: Make sure your water and milk are no hotter than 115 degrees or you will kill the yeast.
