I haven’t made waffles in a long time but I saw this recipe for Overnight Raised Waffles in Marion Cunningham’s The Breakfast Book and wanted to try them. They were good waffles and easy to make because you didn’t have to whip up egg whites, which somehow always turns me off making waffles. In the past, sometimes the waffles I’ve made have been almost dry in the middle. These were crispy on the outside but soft on the inside and very tasty.
This makes a lot so we had leftovers, which seem to heat up well in the toaster. No matter what, it seems the first set of waffles is always messy but they didn’t go to waste. The chickens chased each other around trying to snatch bites of waffles from each other. They are carb-o-holics. I wish I’d thought to bring the camera out with me!
This is for your standard square waffle iron, not the thicker Belgian one.
There are 5 different recipes for waffles in this book, including Sour Milk Waffles, Whole Wheat Buttermilk Waffles and Whole Wheat Granola Waffles, as well as a ton of other good breakfast recipes. Other recipes that caught my eye include Potato Bacon Pie, Potato Apple Fry, Breakfast Sausage (from ground pork), Scones, Buttermilk Baked Eggs, Eggs Beatrice (a lighter version of Eggs Benedict) and Featherbed Eggs.0
