They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, whoever "they" are. But I tend to agree with them because breakfast happens to be my favorite meal. I love nothing more than making a hearty, belly-filling breakfast for my family. If there's a brunch to be thrown, watch out! I'm your gal.
I'm in my glory when it comes to cooking breakfast.
Eggs transformed into fluffy, cheesy omelets or quiche. Oats transformed into warm bowls of oatmeal brimming with fruits and honey. Flour and yeast transformed into lovely cinnamon-laced bread filled with pears, lemon pancakes with fresh blueberry sauce or waffles. Specifically these Overnight Yeast Waffles.
Yep, you read that right. Yeast in Belgian waffles and it's magnificent! The yeast makes for waffles just begging to be as fluffy as they can possibly be. The batter is a breeze to throw together, then you pop your batter into the fridge and tuck it in for the night. Head to bed with visions of golden brown waffles dancing in your head. The next morning, fire up the waffle maker and you're ready to go.
Golden and crisp on the outside, tender and fluffy inside. And you see all those lovely deep pockets? They're just perfect for filling with good ol' butter and maple syrup or perhaps a fresh fruit compote. Ooo! How about ice cream? Oh, and my favorite balsamic strawberry reduction!! Alright, now we're not really talking breakfast anymore but these cinnamon yeast waffles would also make an amazing dessert recipe.
Should you have leftovers, (which you probably won't cause they're so darn good) they freeze beautifully! Then just pop them in the toaster to rejuvenate them right back to being golden and crisp. Breakfast or dessert, fresh or frozen these Overnight Yeast Waffles will have you coming back for seconds.
