Marion Cunningham's Raised Waffles
from the Breakfast Book
This recipe works best with a standard waffle maker (not Belgian)
1/2 cup warm water
2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups whole milk, warmed
1/2 c. butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Pour the water into a large mixing bowl. (The batter will rise to double its volume, so keep that in mind when you choose the bowl.) Sprinkle the yeast over the water, and let stand for 5 minutes.
Add the milk, butter, salt, sugar, and flour, and beat until well blended and smooth. (Electric beaters work well.) Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and let it stand overnight at room temperature.
Before cooking the waffles, preheat waffle maker.
