3.29.20 Honestly, I was concerned when I took the waffle mixture out of the fridge this morning, not looking good I was thinking. I’ve uploaded a photo, so you’ll know what to expect. But don’t panic, all it took was a good stir, and it was good-to-go. Surprisingly, these were some of the best waffles I’ve ever had. I ended up with eight 4-inch square waffles that rose to about 1-inch in height (thanks to the yeast). They were moist, tender, golden brown, and simply delicious! I’d mixed up the dry mixture early yesterday, but when I was finishing up heating the liquid last night before I went to bed, I was grumbling “why did I get myself into this?” But I soon forgot about that this morning when all I had to do was heat up the waffle iron, stir up the batter, and in minutes, had a wonderful waffle breakfast on the table. Mike Marks, thanks for sharing this recipe, it’s definitely worth the effort and nice to try something totally different for waffles. Read More
