A while ago, The Dadler happened to mention to me (after a bit of wine?) that he makes the best waffles ever.
Hmmmmm, I thought. Is that a challenge?
“Really?” I replied nonchalantly. “What’s your secret?” The first rule of battle is to know your opponent’s secret weapon.
“Yeast,” he said. “And they sit overnight.” Well that wasn’t hard…way to hold your hand close, Dadler.
Actually, we have been eating yeast waffles (ew, did I really just type yeast waffles – that sounds like a female hygiene emergency) for years in our family. But Dadler’s friendly reminder about how good they are was a great reason to pull them out again this week. I’ve tried several recipes over the years, but I always come back to this simple, straightforward one. Once you try these, you won’t go back to the non-yeast version. Crisp on the outside, light as air on the inside…you can’t botch these up.
