Have you ever tried waffle recipes and it left something to be desired?
It had to much flour and felt dry…
It was lacking a sweet taste.
It just wasn’t quiet right.
Well I have found the perfect waffle recipe.
We’ve had it and it was a huge hit.
My husband NEVER ask for seconds when we eat waffles.
He did with these & so did my kids :)
(for fun: heres a cell phone video of my youngest chowing on them)
So yummy, moist and waffle perfection.
Its an amazing recipe taken from Annie’s Eats – my new go to kitchen blog.
½ cup warm water
2¼ tsp. active dry yeast (Instant is fine too)
2 cups whole milk, warmed
8 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
¼ tsp. baking soda
Combine the water and yeast in a large mixing bowl. (If using active dry yeast, let stand to dissolve 5 minutes before proceeding.) Add the milk, butter, salt, sugar and flour to the bowl (DO NOT ADD EGGS yet, I made this mistake the 1st time, whoops). Whisk until well blended and smooth (you can also use an electric mixer.) Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature overnight. (The milk will be fine btw.)
When you are ready to make the waffles, preheat the waffle iron. Preheat the oven to 200˚ F and place a plate in the oven (I used a cooking stone). Just before making the waffles, whisk the eggs and baking soda into the batter until smooth. The batter will be very thin. Fill waffle wells and cook according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Cook until crisp and golden. Transfer finished waffles to the warmed plate in the oven while you cook the rest of the batter. Top as desired with butter, syrup, etc.
Yield: depends on the size/shape of your waffle iron (I made an entire batch and we only had like 3 waffles left over. I’m feeding 3 boys tho and that doesn’t include my husband)
Original Source: slightly adapted from Orangette, originally from The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham – Again I found it via Annie’s Eats.
If you are a waffle lover you should absolutely stir this up tonight and eat it for breakfast tomorrow. If you cook it up, come back and let us know how much you loved it :)
