Overnight Waffles

Overnight Waffles

Ready in 45 minutes

Found in Mark Bittman's, How To Cook Everything, these are the best waffles I have ever eaten.

"I made this recipe for Mother's Day. Everyone loved it! They were light and had a light yeasty flavor. I chose not to separate the eggs. Note to those who increase the recipe. Be sure to put it in a large enough container. I quadrupled the recipe and put it in two pitchers. When I woke up it had risen and run over. We all thought it was like something out of an old “I Love Lucy" episode. Although a good laugh I will not make THAT mistake next time."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1/2 teaspoon Instant yeast
2 cups All purpose flour
1 tablespoon Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 cups milk
8 tablespoon Butter; melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract; optional
Canola Oil; for brushing on waffle iron
2 eggs

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Preparation

1. Before going to bed, combine the dry ingredients and stir in the milk, then the butter and vanilla. The mixture will be loose. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside overnight at room temperature (I found a gallon pitcher worked best)

2.Brush the waffle iron lightly with oil and preheat it. Separate the eggs and stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the whites until they hold soft peaks. Stir them gently into the batter. (I just stirred the eggs into the batter without separating them. Seemed to work well.)

3. Pour batter onto the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is done, usually 3 to 5 minutes, depending on your iron. Serve immediately or keep warm for a few minutes in a low oven.

I watch for the steam to stop rising from the waffle iron before I check for doneness. Also, these freeze well if you have extras. A quick toast in the toaster oven crisps them up again and they taste almost as good as fresh.

Great crispy texture, could be sweeter

These were perfect. I've tried many, many recipes and these are just what I've been looking for- very light and crispy. Next time, I'll make half a recipe as there are just two of us. My waffle iron makes one at a time, and these waffles stayed warm and crispy in my toaster oven until all were made.

Not crispy at all, even cooked until slightly overdone and still were soggy. Tasted ok, not great but not terrible either. Recipe was easy to put together, and did make the kitchen smell good in the morning. PProbably

Oh my, these are AWESOME! And absurdly easy. I didn't separate the egg (we did half a recipe), and can't imagine them any lighter or more delicate. Be sure to spray or oil, because their lightness makes them a little more prone to sticking.

Not impressed. Liked the flavor and the crispy outside, but the inside was gummy. Think I will go back to my traditional recipe.
