- 1/2 tsp. instant yeast
- 2 cups flour
- 1 T. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 cups milk
- 8 T. butter, melted and cooled
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- Oil or Pam for waffle iron
- 2 eggs
Before going to bed, combine the dry ingredients and stir in the milk, then the butter and vanilla. The mixture will be loose. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside overnight at room temperature.
Brush the waffle iron lightly with oil and preheat it. Separate the eggs and stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the whites until they hold soft peaks. Stir them gently into the batter.
Spread a ladleful or so of batter onto the waffle iron and bake until the waffle is done, usually 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately or keep warm for a few minutes in a low oven.
