Overnight Yeast Waffle Recipe

My family loves waffles for breakfast and this is my favorite waffle recipe.  This overnight waffle batter recipe takes a little bit of work at night, but it’s ready to go in the morning whenever you are.  The waffles cook up nice and crisp outside, but tender and soft inside – just how I like them!

Making a good waffle can be tricky.  When I first started making them for my family, I’d whip up egg whites and fold them in to the batter. But everyone was hungry and it just took too long.    I always double the recipe and freeze whatever we don’t eat.   The waffles re-heat wonderfully in the toaster oven.

If you need a quicker option the morning of, check out my simple waffle recipe or even cottage cheese waffles.  They are both great waffle recipes that come together quickly.
