About a month ago I finally bought a waffle maker. I had been dying to get one but I just never made the purchase, always pushing it off. I was on foodgawker looking for yummy new waffle recipes and came across a recipe for waffles called Raised Waffles made with yeast. I knew I had to try it. It sounded so easy, and I just love using yeast. I love the smell of it, reminds me of fresh baked bread. I’ve made this recipe twice now and it’s absolutely my favorite waffle recipe. It’s simple and creates a light crispy waffle. While it’s in the waffle maker the steam it gives off smells amazing.
Recipe from Circle B Kitchen
1/2 cup warm water
1 package or 2 1/4 teaspoons instant active dry yeast
2 cups milk, warmed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups AP flour
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1. In a large bowl, pour warm water in and sprinkle yeast on top. Wait about 5 minutes until the yeast is dissolved.
2. Whisk milk, butter, salt, sugar, and flour into yeast mixture. Cover bowl and let sit over night. The batter will rise over night.
3. In the morning, beat in eggs and baking soda. Cook on a hot waffle griddle per waffle instructions.
I do not use a nonstick spray on the griddle and it doesn’t stick but I’ve heard it can stick.
