Yeast Waffles, again

Still looking for that killer yeasted waffles recipe, this time from the cookbook Make the Bread, Buy the Butter (Jennifer Reese, the Tipsy Baker), from which we grabbed the buttermilk pancake recipe which we make on most weekends.

I do like the process for this recipe, which doesn’t involve much careful heating, but overall it was too greasy due to the large amount of butter. I think I preferred the Joy of Cooking recipe which we made last year.

1 c flour
0.5 c whole wheat flour
2 T sugar
1 t instant yeast
1 t kosher salt
8 T butter, melted
2 c milk, warmed
1 t vanilla extract
2 eggs, separated
0.5 t baking soda

The night prior to making the waffles, mix up all ingredients minus the eggs and baking soda, then let sit overnight at RT. In the morning, separate the eggs, and mix the yolks and the baking soda into the batter. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks, then fold in gently. Made 10 waffles in our iron.
