Yeast Raised Waffles

I really try to slow down and enjoy my weekends. Since I lead a pretty busy life this can be hard to do, but I always try to carve out one morning to relax. I love to sip coffee and cook a special breakfast with my husband. These waffles are our go to on the days we know we have time to savour the morning.


Now these aren’t your typical waffles. These waffles are yeast raised. The yeast makes them light and airy, but gives them an extra depth of flavour. One other thing that is different about these waffles is that the batter is made the night before. So a little planning is involved, but I promise they are worth it!


I like to top mine with butter and real Canadian maple syrup, but I bet they would be extra yummy with berries and whipped cream. I bet you’d even love them plain!

So what your family’s favourite weekend breakfast?


Servings: 20 Waffles


  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups milk (I use 2%)
  • 12 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 14 teaspoon baking soda
  • Your favourite toppings (butter, syrup, Nutella, strawberries, whipped cream)
Whisk yeast and sugar in ½ cup warm water until dissolved. Set aside for 5-10 minutes or until foamy and doubled in size. Add milk, melted butter, salt, and flour to the bowl. Whisk until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate over night.
Preheat your waffle iron. Whisk eggs and baking soda into the batter until smooth. Pour batter into the wells of your waffle iron (1/4 to 1/2 cup depending on the style of the iron). Allow to cook for thirty second before closing the lid. Lower the lid and cook per your waffle irons specifications until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter.
