How’s that for a recipe name? These are also apparently known around the blogosphere as WIG for short. Whatever you decide to call them, I like to think of them as my favorite basic go-to morning-of waffle recipe. These yeasted waffles still hold my place as number one because of the amazing flavor the yeast provides, but these are a very close second. Perfect when my little guy is shouting, “Waffles! Waffles!” and I did not prep the yeasted batter the night before. This recipe does call for a short 30 minute wait time to let the batter sit before using, but that’s nothing a little distraction with books and toys can’t fix.
The flavor is just what you would want in a plain waffle and the texture is dreamy – slightly crisp on the outside, tender and airy on the inside. My only beef with this recipe is that, at least in my waffle maker, it only yields five waffles – enough for feeding our little family certainly, but not enough extra to feed guests or freeze leftovers. If you are feeding more than two adults and a hungry child, definitely double it!
