Raised Waffles

User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Plan to make the waffle batter the night before you plan on cooking them.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 2 cups milk, warm
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


Put the water in a large mixing bowl and sprinkle with yeast. Let stand to dissolve for about 5 minutes. Add warm milk, melted butter, salt, sugar and flour to the yeast mixture; beat until well-blended and smooth. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let stand overnight at room temperature. Just before cooking the waffles, beat in the eggs, add the baking soda, and stir until well mixed - the batter will be thin. Pour batter into sections of a very hot waffle iron. Cook the waffles until they are golden brown.

Easy to pig out on, Member beckworld

I tried mixing these up last night to have as a breakfast treat this morning and...they are fabulous. The batter looked thin after the morning additions, so I added an extra 1/4 cup flour, which was good, but I'm glad I didn't add more, because of the way it cooked up, light and crisp. This is just not a thick type of waffle batter. The waffles have a slight tangy/yeasty flavor, which was deliciously flavorful. The texture is extra light and crispy, not at all heavy, like some pancakes and waffles that can stick in your craw going down. No sir, these are easy to eat in great quantity! Watch out if you are trying not to overeat, you may be tempted to pig out.
