For those who don't like the yeasty savory flavor of yeast waffles, I did modify this recipe a bit. I used regular active yeast, not instant, because that's what I had on hand. After refrigerating it overnight, I added about 3 tablespoons more sugar and let it sit on the counter for about an hour. The extra sweetness helps hide the sour yeast flavor. I also macerated some blueberries and added those right before cooking, but that was so my toddler would eat them (she eats them without syrup). Overall they were a hit with all my picky eaters, so I will use this recipe from now on, with the modifications. Also it made twice the 7 regular size waffles that the recipe says, so I had enough to freeze for future use.

These are the best waffles I've ever made. And I've made a lot. Crisp on the outside and light and fluffy inside. No problem with sticking on the waffle iron. Love that prep is done the night before, makes the morning so much easier. Served with bacon, eggs, and choice of real maple syrup or Buttermilk Syrup which is sweet but very tasty. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Delicious! I have made every kind of waffle, and I think this is my favorite! I love that you prep the batter the night before (I only let it sit about 9 hours in the fridge--what can I say, I stay up late and get up early--and it worked perfectly). I loved the flavor and the crispiness. These are the best waffles!

This is the third time making these waffles!---Easy---like the no oil added--with the exception of the butter,and that is good in moderation. the body needs some fat to work properly. As long as it's in moderation. We have waffles about every week and a half!---------The best---No more box chemical glue waffles for us. thank you for the winner!

I've been experimenting with different waffle recipes for about a month - this is our favorite so far. Great crispiness and browning on surface and very fluffy inside with a slightly yeasty taste. Also very easy to prep the night before (10 minutes max) which makes breakfast that much easier the next day. Highly recommend.
