When there is a major holiday, my mother, sister and I used to always make waffles. We used to use mixes but making your own waffle batter is so easy! Plus, you don’t have to buy expensive mixes, as most of the ingredients are already in your kitchen. My favorite part of this recipe is that I can just throw the ingredients in the blender and have it do the mixing. The blender then becomes my overnight batter container (with lid!) and the next day, it becomes my easy pour container, when I pour the batter onto my waffle iron. Win/Win!
So, if you have had a busy day and you have guests for breakfast in the morning, just throw together this easy to make batter before you go to bed and have fresh homemade waffles in the morning! This recipe makes 4 waffles.
1 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon of instant yeast
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 tablespoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons of melted butter
1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
- Add milk (Milk first!), yeast, flour sugar, salt butter and vanilla in a blender.
- Blend until all contents are well mixed
- Leave batter at room temperature overnight
- In the morning, add egg and blend
- With cooking spray, grease your waffle iron and pour batter and cook
- Keep hot waffles on a cookie tray, in the oven at the lowest setting (not stacked or you will get soggy waffles) until ready to serve.

This sounds so easy and good. I have never made waffles with yeast. I will have to try this!
Just a quick question – do you think regular yeast would work?
Yes, but I would recommend letting the yeast sit in warmed milk for about 5 minutes (until frothy) before adding it to the mix. Just put the warm milk and yeast directly into the blender, let it sit and then add the remaining ingredients. From what I read, you don’t have to let the rapid-highly active yeast sit (especially since this has a long proof time) before using it. The regular yeast, you do need to let it sit first (Also, if your yeast is old, you want to make sure it will still rise).
I hope you enjoy this recipe! I made it for my sister and my husband this morning. Happy Holidays!
Thanks for the info! That is what I would do for my breads but didn’t know if it would work for the All-Night Waffles. You are so right about using fresh yeast or at least making sure the old yeast will activate. 🙂
