Yeast Waffles

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

Wonderful waffles! The batter improves each day and will keep up to a week (if it lasts that long!) refrigerated. I usually mix the batter at least two days before I plan to use it. I originally got this recipe from the aunt of a dear friend over 15 years ago. They're yummy topped with sliced strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream! Prep time does not include overnight chill time.

Delicious, light, golden-brown waffles. DH awarded them one of his few 5-star ratings. I followed the recipe exactly, but ended up adding about 1/4 cup more liquid. Very easy to mix and store. Although I usually prefer pancakes, these were extremely good. NOTE: The batter expands (rises) quite a bit when refrigerated, so mix and store in large container.
