First of all, for all who have been wondering about the mystery item mentioned yesterday in The Pantry Game, we had one correct guess Miracle Whip! Amazing what is in a commercial jar of mayonnaise.

Today’s recipe is another 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

1 tsp yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
½ tsp salt
2 cups milk
6 Tbsp butter, melted

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.

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.

One comment on “Recipe Box: Amazing Overnight Waffles

I have made waffles before but have never made the batter up the night before. Will have to give this a shot. I always froze any extra waffles as they come in really handy when having overnight guests.(pancakes the same way)
One thing that I do add in my batter is about 1 cap full of vanilla or almond extract.
No syrup for me, as I like to use my homemade Blueberry or Strawberry Syrup :} If I know ahead of time that we will be going out for breakfast, I will take along my own syrup.
Thanks 4 sharing the recipe
