We have been invited over to a friend’s house for dinner, so we will not get to eat what I had planned for our meal today. We will be eating these another night this week though, so I wanted to share with you all my absolute favorite waffle recipe.
This recipe is special to me because it was given to me by my dear friend. My first getaway (without my son or husband) was to her house and when I arrived she was making these waffles for me. The recipe was given to her by her mother, and now it makes a regular appearance in our home.
You will not believe how much these waffles rise, which results in a light & airy waffle.
I hope you enjoy these as much as our family has!
1/4 cup warm water
1 package yeast (dissolve the yeast in the ¼ cup of water)
½ cup oil
1 tablespoon sugar
¾ teaspoon salt
3 cups flour
2 cups warm milk
Mix all ingredients together, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Warm waffle iron and spray with non-stick spray. If batter is too thick, use milk to thin down.
*Keep water warm- if too hot it will kill the yeast.
