OVERNIGHT YEAST WAFFLES — With a yeast batter that’s mixed up the night before, these light and fluffy waffles are wonderful for both holiday breakfasts as well as busy week day mornings.
If you love the idea of serving a hot breakfast, but don’t want to do all the work first thing in the morning, then these Overnight Yeast Waffles are the perfect solution.
The batter is mixed up the night before and refrigerated. All you have to do in the morning is stir in some baking soda and then pour the batter into your waffle iron. Easy peasy!
Even better, when it comes to light and fluffy waffles, a yeast based batter is definitely the way to go. I mean, of course you’re going to get fluffy waffles when there’s yeast in the batter.
This recipe is even doable on a week day morning. And if you have older kids, they can pull the batter out of the refrigerator and make their own waffles.
Because the only thing better than waffles for breakfast is getting to sleep in first!
All of the usual waffles topping work great here, including maple syrup, fresh fruit, and fruit sauces and syrups. Our favorite waffle topping is homemade blueberry sauce. And of course, whipped cream.
These waffles are perfect for Christmas morning, because everything is ready to go, and you aren’t stuck in the kitchen making breakfast while everyone else opens presents.
You don’t need a special waffle iron to make these waffles, although a Belgian style waffle maker is my favorite because it creates all those big nooks and crannies to hold your syrup and toppings.
I don’t make a hot breakfast very often, so whenever I serve these waffles for breakfast, my kids feel extra special. And they’re just as wonderful served for dinner, or even dessert!
If you’re looking for an easy, quick and convenient way to serve hot, homemade waffles, then this Overnight Yeast Waffles recipe is just the thing you need. Enjoy!
