You may remember my very popular post on Amazing Overnight Waffles. It’s a tried and true recipe that we’ve been making for years. My daughter’s now make the same recipe in their families on a regular basis. I should know not to mess with such a wonderful recipe, however I recently found a recipe for Raised Waffles in one of my cookbooks, Cold Weather Cookbook. The recipe was so similar with one addition a pinch of baking soda. I though maybe the addition of baking soda would help the waffles to rise even more.


Like the Amazing Overnight Waffles the batter is mixed up the night before and when you wake up in the morning the yeasty aroma of the batter will thrill your senses. However, after mixing up a batch of these Raised Waffles I was not impressed. It’s a good recipe, don’t get me wrong, but not any improvement over the original recipe for Amazing Overnight Waffles!


I’ll include the recipe below and you can try them for yourself and then let me know how you think they compare to my ever-popular Amazing Overnight Waffles!Amazing Overnight Waffles


Raised WafflesAmazing Overnight Waffles




½ cup water

1 pkg. active dry yeast

1 tsp. sugar

2 cups lukewarm milk

½ cup butter, melted and cooled

1 tsp. salt

2 cups flour

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Pinch of baking soda




The night before prepare your batter. Combine the water, yeast, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes for the yeast to dissolve. Add the milk, butter, salt and flour and stir until completely smooth. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let sit overnight at room temperature.


The next morning heat your waffle iron according to the manufacturers directions. Beat the eggs with the baking soda and add to the batter, stirring until well mixed. Pour enough batter onto your waffle iron to cover it and cook until crisp and golden.Amazing Overnight Waffles Repeat this process until you have used up all the batter. Serve with hot maple syrup. Makes about six large waffles. Like the original Amazing Overnight Waffles, these waffles also freeze well to enjoy at a later date.


I’ve seen a lot of recipes for Egg Muffins online, however this is the way we like to make them! They can be made ahead and frozen for a quick breakfast when you are running out of time. Just pop them in the microwave and reheat!
