Yeasted Waffles (Raised Waffles) plus Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party

Have you ever heard of Yeasted Waffles? Sometimes they are called Raised Waffles or Overnight Waffles. They are crispy on the outside and so fluffly and airy on the inside you might not go back to baking soda waffles again.

Yeasted Waffles - old fashioned overnight waffles leavened with yeast instead of baking soda. Crispy on the outside, fluffy inside. (raised waffles)I was looking for another recipe when I stumbled on this one in my Cook’s Illustrated Cook Book (affiliate link). I am so glad I did. We devoured them for “brinner” Friday night. Brinner is what we call breakfast for dinner.

Normally, I am bad and don’t read through all of the instructions before starting a recipe. I knew the batter needed to sit in the fridge overnight, so I mixed it up and put it in my 1 quart batter bowl because it has a handy little snap tight lid. As I closed the cook book the words “BATTER WILL DOUBLE OVERNIGHT” jumped out at me.

I quickly poured the batter back into the cleaned mixing bowl and covered it with plastic wrap. Phew! Crisis averted!

The only other word of warning you might need is about the yeast. I bake bread a lot so I don’t even mess with those little 3 packet envelopes. But, in case you do be sure to measure 1 1/2 teaspoons of yeast from one of the packets. Don’t use the whole packet or you could have batter all over your fridge.

Yeasted Waffles - old fashioned overnight waffles leavened with yeast instead of baking powder. Crispy on the outside, fluffy inside. (raised waffles)

  • 2 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


1 packet yeast is 2 1/4 teaspoons - do not use the entire packet.


Warm milk and butter in a saucepan (or microwave) until butter is just melted. Let cool until it is just warm to the touch.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, yeast and salt.
Slowly whisk in the milk/butter mixture and mix until smooth.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Be sure there is room in the bowl for batter to double in size! Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (12-24 hours).
