Recipe by The Giggle Box

I got this recipe from Cook's Illustrated. I haven't tried it yet - but it looks yummy. Since I haven't made this recipe yet, I am guessing on the cook and prep time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat butter and milk together in a small pan until butter is melted (about 3 to 5 minutes).
  2. Cool milk mixture until it is warm to the touch.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, sugar, salt and yeast together.
  4. Gradually add warm milk mixture to flour mixture and whisk until smooth.
  5. In a separate small bowl, whisk eggs and vanilla; then add to the butter/flour mix.
  6. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and then refrigerate for 12 to 24 hours.
  7. When you are ready to make the waffles, preheat the waffle iron.
  8. Once the iron is hot, remove the waffle mix from the fridge (batter will be doubled in size and foamy).
  9. Whisk batter until smooth- it will deflate.
  10. Spoon 1/2 cup onto hot waffle iron and cook until waffles are crisp.
  11. Serve immediately or keep warm in a low temperature oven.
