Overnight yeasted waffles

Updated: Jul 15, 2021

Night before:

  • 1/2 cup warm water

  • 1 tbsp dry yeast

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 2 cups milk

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2-3 tbsp maple sugar (or another sugar)

  • 3 cups flour

Combine the yeast and the water in a large mixing bowl and let stand for a few minutes (a LARGE mixing bowl is key). Melt the butter and combine with milk, salt, and sugar. Stir the luke warm mixture into the dissolved yeast mixture. Add the flour and stir until a thick, shaggy dough is formed and there is no more visible flour. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter overnight.

The next day:

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda (or baking powder)

Beat the eggs together and add them to the batter with the baking soda. Beat into the batter until combined. This seems a little weird but don't worry the waffles will turn out perfect! Cook the waffles according to your waffle maker's instructions.

We usually make a double batch and freeze the waffles. You can then just pop them in the toaster for a quick breakfast or snack. If you don't have a waffle maker, ask your neighbours, one of them is bound to have one!
