Yeast Waffle Recipe

These yeast waffle recipe is for people that are not hungry at the moment. It is for people that do not want to eat waffles RIGHT NOW! :) Why? Because this yeast waffle recipe requires you to leave the batter to rest overnight. So make the batter in the evening and enjoy the waffles in the morning.

Yeast Waffle Recipe

For a yeast waffle recipe we will need:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/4 cups whole milk
1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast
1 stick unsalted butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 large lightly beaten eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Now we can take it easy :) First we need to heat the milk. Not until it boils but almost. Why? Because once the milk is hot we throw in the butter so it melts. If you cut it to pieces it will melt even quicker so do it.

Take a big bowl and throw together the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. Before you start pouring your milk/butter over the flour you want to wait so it cools down a bit. If it's to hot you will destroy the yeast. Mix until the mixture is smooth and then whisk in the eggs and vanilla.

Now it is waiting time. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put refrigerate it for at least 12 hours but wait even longer if you can, like a whole day. Don't panic if the waffle batter doubles, this is what you want.


24 hours later...

OK, now we are ready. Heat the waffle iron and take your mixture from refrigerator. Mix it a little so you recombine and deflate it and then bake your yeast waffles like any other waffles.

These should be really soft waffles, hope you enjoy them and our yeast waffle recipe.

what is whole milk

Milkman 03.06.2009. 10:55

Whole milk is milk from which no constituent (like fat) has been removed, it's the opposite from skimmed milk, low fat milk etc...

i understood most of the recipe, but what do you mean by "1 stick unsalted butter"? 250g's?

Olivia 02.07.2009. 15:41

doggymail: 1 stick unsalted butter is 1/4 of a pound, so (according to google), that would make it 113.398093 grams. It is also 1/2 cup.

1 stick of butter is 113.4 grams

What exactly do you mean by put refrigerate it? Won't putting the batter in the fridge make the yeast go dormant again?

Great Waffles

itll slow the metabolism of the yeast... its still working, just not as fast. if u dont refrigerate it, you would probably have to feed it about every 4-6 hours with more flour and water to keep the yeast from starving... or atleast thats this bakers point of view...

Although we don't like to admit it, there are times when you need to eat something other than waffles. Here you can find a link to Amazon which is a great place to buy your first or your new waffle maker. Then you have other sites that also offer great recipes and we like to visit them sometimes when we are in a mood for something other that waffles. Which is not very often :). Enjoy!
