Reviews for Raised Yeast Waffles
"I found the recipe in my TOH magazine and mixed up the batter to try it. It was really runny, so I went online to see the reviews. I decided to add flour too, about 1 and 1/4 cups or a little more, about half of that whole wheat. I also added a couple teaspoons of vanilla sugar. The waffles were good, but we eat waffles as fast food, when we come home late and want a hot meal. There's no way to do that if the batter has to rise for 45 minutes. I'm not saving this one; it's just not worth the extra time."
"Delicious!! It made 5 large Belgian waffles for me!"
"I make yeast waffles as often as I can. My Grandma would make yeast waffles on Friday nights. I like slow raise in the frig overnight for the batter. I used 1 stick of butter which is a 1/2 cup of butter. Also the batter would make pancakes. Old cookbooks call the batter either or, pancakes or waffles, just add more fat to waffles."
"The batter is a very thin batter. My waffle iron can't handle thin batters very well, so I added an extra 3/4 cup of flour and then we got light, crispy, delicious, and addicting waffles."
"These need work. I found this recipe in the latest issue of TOH. I had to add more flour and sugar because they were not browning and the batter was extremely runny. Perhaps less butter would be better? I made a huge mess in my kitchen trying to use this recipe as written. My adjustments did not help the flavor so I will not give any measurements of flour or sugar. Just try a different recipe. Do not waste your 2 sticks of butter."
