Sometimes a recipe is just so good you have to share it more than once! During the busy holiday season it’s nice to have a breakfast that you can mix up the night before.

Amazing Overnight Wafles

Today’s recipe is a family favorite. If you haven’t tried overnight waffles you’ve been missing an awesome treat! I love this simple recipe; you mix up the majority of the ingredients the night before. In the morning you add the butter and an egg and the mix is ready to be turned into delicious waffles. What better excuse to enjoy maple syrup. I enjoy using this recipe when we have company. It makes for a delicious, easy breakfast in the morning without much effort on your part.

Amazing Overnight Waffles

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
½ tsp salt
2 cups milk
6 Tbsp butter, melted
1 large egg
Nonstick spray
Butter for the waffle iron (op)
Waffle iron

Combine the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a medium size bowl.

Whisk until well blended.

Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let stand overnight at room temperature.

Cover with plastic wrap.

In the morning the batter will have all sorts of bubbles on the surface.

Preheat the waffle iron and melt the butter. Beat the egg in a small separate bowl and beat it into the batter along with the melted butter. The batter will be quite thin.

Lightly spray the hot waffle iron on all surfaces with the nonstick spray and rub on a little butter. Add just enough batter to cover the cooking surface. Cook for two to three minutes, depending on your waffle iron. Do not over bake, as you want it crisp and brown, but not too dark.

Serve with your favorite toppings. Recipe can be easily doubled or tripled!

Serves three to four. These waffles also freeze well. Any leftover waffles I let cool on a baking rack and then wrap and place in the freezer.
