Raised Waffles, made with yeast. A little more work, but worth the wait.

Top Review by moxie

These are wonderful, light waffles, and the yeast gives them a more complex flavor than the standard "quick batter." It did take me a few tries to get the amount of batter and cooking time right, but the end result was worth it. I did notice that my waffle iron light went off *way* before these were really ready. Thanks, Leta, for sharing this tasty recipe. I served these dusted with powdered sugar, then with fresh lemon juice squeezed over them. Delicious!
