Overnight Waffles Recipe


It’s easy to throw these together the night before. Let the yeast work its magic. The next morning, you add the remaining ingredients, give it a little stir, and get that waffle iron ready!

This is the only way I ever make waffles. It is a favorite of our boys–and of our own. They are from How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. Find it, buy it, it is a wonderful cookbook.

Overnight Waffles Recipe: Crispy and Buttery

From "How to Cook Everything" by Mark Bittman. This is a phenomenal cookbook! I know a few Indiana town bookshops where you can find it.


  • 1/2 teaspoon Instant Yeast
  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • 1 Stick Butter, Melted and Cooled
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Eggs


  1. Before heading off to bed, combine the dry ingredients, then the milk, and finally the melted and cooled butter and vanilla.
  2. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature.
  3. The next morning, preheat your waffle iron.
  4. Separate the eggs (or not, it's up to you) and stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks. Stir these gently into the batter as well.
  5. Spread batter onto iron and bake 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Serve immediately or do like I do and keep an oven-proof plate in the oven to keep them warm.


If you have time, separate the egg, otherwise--these are delicious no matter what you do!
