My kids could not get enough of these waffles! I make them every day for the past two weeks. The crispy outer part and the soft centre are such a delight. I know that your kids will appreciate them as well. Enjoy!
- ½ cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups of water
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
Step 1: In a medium mixing bowl, add 1 teaspoon sugar and 1/2 cup warm water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved completely. Add in the yeast and let it stand for 10 minutes until foamy.
Step 2: Add 2 cups of water, butter, flour, and salt into the yeast and stir until well mixed. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place inside the fridge for 8 hours to overnight to chill.
Step 3: In a small mixing bowl, add vanilla extract, baking soda, and 1/4 cup sugar. Stir until well mixed then transfer the mixture into the batter. Stir until smooth.
Step 4: Place a griddle on the stove and turn the heat to medium.
Step 5: Drizzle oil and allow it to become hot.
Step 6: Drop 1/4 cup of the batter in batches to make waffles. Cook for 10 minutes or until the colour turns light brown.
Step 7: Place the waffles on a clean plate.
Step 8: Serve and enjoy!
- Use a large bowl for the final batter because it will double in volume.
- Do not cover the waffles with the toppings to keep them crisp.
