We've had a tradition in our family for many years that we have waffles every Sunday morning. Even though the kiddos are now grown and gone my husband and I still keep the tradition. Great with applesauce and syrup or strawberries and whipped cream!
How to Make Raised Waffles
- Use a large bowl as the batter will double it's volume.Mix warm water & sugar in the mixing bowl. Sprinkle in the yeast. Stir to dissolve. Let stand 5 minutes until slightly bubbly. Add the warm milk, oil/melted butter, salt and flour. Mix until well blended and smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand over-night at room temperature.
- In the morning beat in the eggs (I leave these out overnight as well to come to room temperature) and the soda. Mix well. Pour onto hot waffle iron and cook according to your iron's directions.
