Ingredients

  • 1 packet active dry yeast 2 1/4 teaspoons
  • 1/2 cup warm water(105° to 115°)
  • 2 cups warm milk (105° to 115°) (440 ml)
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine (114 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (270 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  • Combine yeast and 1/2 cup water in a glass measuring cup; let stand 5 minutes.
  • Combine yeast mixture, milk, and next 3 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add flour, stirring until smooth. Cover and chill 8 hours.Whisk in eggs and baking soda.
  • Prepare in a waffle iron according to manufacturers directions. I used my little Cuisinart and made each waffle with approximately 1/3 cup of batter. It’s thin, so if you’re using a small waffle iron, pour it on slowly. Makes about 12 waffles (but varies, depending on size of waffle maker).
