This recipe was given to me by my parents’ good friend, Hazel. Hazel and her husband had a beautiful house on Smith Mountain Lake, in Virginia, and Hazel was an absolutely excellent hostess. The trick to these waffles is the fact that there’s yeast in them, and they rise overnight, so they are particularly light and airy. This is my go-to meal for house guests, sleepovers, and Sunday breakfast.
Waffle irons aren’t rocket surgery (sorry, family joke!), but here are the settings I use on mine:

I’m interested in how these taste differently from waffles made without yeast. Ooh, they sound just yummy! Just have to try them. Thanks a bunch, shared.
They aren’t as chewy–very light and fluffy due to the yeast. My husband can eat a half dozen of them if he doesn’t pace himself! You’ll love them!
Thank you for the recipe and the name and model of your waffle maker I was researching both. On the recipe are these tea spoons or table spoons?
