Weekend Waffles

Updated: Sep 11, 2019


These waffles are the lightest, crispest, and most custardy-ish ones you will ever try. I started making these when I was just married and they have remained a favorite of Brad's and now the boys. These are the most delicious waffles you will ever try! Just start the night before and it will be waiting for you in the morning!


Ingredients for Weekend Waffles:

serves 8 with leftovers


2 packs of dry yeast ( I used rapid)

1 cup of warm water

4 cups warm milk

2 sticks unsalted butter, melted

2 teaspoons Kosher salt

2 teaspoons sugar

4 cups flour

4 eggs

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Serve with butter, syrup, and berries.


You will also need a waffle iron and a hand beater. I love my KitchenAid Architect Hand Beater. Click Here if you would like to learn more about it.


Time-Saving Tip: Since this recipe needs to be started the night before so the yeast can do its thing, it is already a time saver for morning preparation. You can also pull out the waffle maker and have it ready to bake in the morning.


Let's see what we need.

Time to make the waffles.


Before calling it a night, prepare the waffle batter. Pour the warm water into a bowl large enough to hold the mixture as it rises. Sprinkle the yeast on top and let it dissolve for 5 minutes.


When dissolved, add the milk, melted butter, sugar, salt, and flour to the yeast mixture.


Using the beater combine all of the ingredients until smooth. Do this at low speed or else the batter will splatter all over. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside on the counter.


Good morning! Grab a cup of coffee and get all of your toppings ready to go.


Now you're ready to finish up the waffles. Plug in the waffle maker and then add the eggs and baking soda to the batter. Beat until combined.


Once heated add batter to the waffle maker. It's hard to say just how much batter since it depends on the size of the waffles that you're making. I always try to restrain myself and fill the maker until nearly full. This way when I close it puddles of batter don't ooze out. It might take a time or two to get the measuring just right.


They're ready! These look awesome and are delicious, delicious, delicious!


Enjoy!
