These waffles are warm, crunchy, soft, and sweet!
 This is the batter/ dough after an overnight rest in the refrigerator.
 Ding! Golden Brown Deliciousness and on the way to my plate!
  • This recipe was emailed to me by the King Arthur Flour Company!
  •  Here we go:
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm milk
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons maple syrup, optional
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups All Purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons instant yeast


1) Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, leaving room for expansion; the mixture will bubble and grow.
2) Stir to combine; it?s OK if the mixture isn't perfectly smooth.
3) Cover with plastic wrap, and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour; the mixture will begin to bubble. You can cook the waffles at this point, or refrigerate the batter overnight to cook waffles the next day.
4) Preheat your waffle iron. Spray with non-stick vegetable oil spray, and pour 2/3 to 3/4 cup batter (or the amount recommended by the manufacturer) onto the center of the iron. Close the lid and bake for the recommended amount of time, until the waffle is golden brown. It takes us 5 to 6 minutes, using our 7" Belgian-style (deep-pocket) waffle iron.
5) Serve immediately, or keep warm in a 200°F oven. Serve with berries and whipped cream, if desired.
Yield: about 4 Belgian-style (deep-pocket) 7" round waffles.

These are now a part of my kitchen must do recipes! It is simple and fast. I made them before bed and leave them to relax in the fridge! Yeast is one of those ingredients that improves any flour based product. I simply love waffles. This is the best waffle recipe I have ever made. They are soft inside and crunchy on the outside. Make your family or just yourself very Happy and make these! Remember, you can ROCK THAT PLATE!
