Reviews forOvernight Yeast Waffles
"Such a delicious breakfast! I made these last night and woke up a few times during the night thinking about them. OK, I'm a little obsessed with food, especially waffles and pancakes. So tasty."
"My Grandmother would would make overnight yeast waffles for Friday night dinner. I enjoy making these waffles in her memory."
"What an easy/tasty waffle recipe! It was so nice to wake up on a Saturday morning and not have to mix something together. I just had to pull my batter out of the fridge, and and pour it in to my heated waffle iron. This is definitely a keeper. I did add a little extra flour, as others mentioned below. Also, I used all whole wheat and substituted half the butter for applesauce to cut calories."
"My family LOVED these! My very picky seven year old ate five and told me not to lose the recipe! They smell so good when the're cooking. Wondering if I should add a splash of vanilla. :-)"
"Really yummy and yet not sweet. I had to add some flour to the batter in the morning because it was a little runny for my liking. But an easy enough fix!"
"This is a good tasting and filling waffle. The yeast gives it a hint of something home-made and not from a mix. I will definately make this often."
