Recipe by Maiya
I got this recipe off Epicurious.com. It is supposed to be from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook by Marion Cunningham. These are the best waffles I have ever had. They are incredibly light and airy. I like to eat them with maple syrup and whipped cream. Prep time DOES NOT include sitting overnight. Cook time is per waffle.
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 1⁄4 teaspoons yeast (or 1 package)
- 2 cups warm milk
- 1⁄2 cup melted butter
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 2 eggs
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
