SMS: Raised Waffles



Busy Busy Busy lately! As usual. School is nearing final projects time, the holidays are near, our aprons came out in the magazine, wedding planning, working... But since waffles was this week's recipe for Sweet Melissa Sundays, I made time in the schedule for a nice breakfast. :) I chose to forgo the brown sugar bananas because the waffles sounded good enough by themselves! Perhaps in the future I'll make the banana topping.



I made the recipe as is - the only difference is that I added a bit of cinnamon to the battle to go along with the nutmeg. It was actually a cinch to throw the ingredients together. Everything besides baking soda and eggs was mixed together the night before, and in the morning it was quickly ready to go into the waffle maker. I was a bit scared because it called for yeast, but I think it went ok. Did anyone's batter rise? The recipe didn't say that during the 8 hour room-temperature sitting period it was supposed to increase in volume... so when mine didn't I wasn't really discouraged. Did any one else's?



The waffles were delicious. I know Sweet Melissa said this recipe is not intended for a belgian waffle maker, but thats all I had... and they came out just fine. Perfectly fluffy and soft on the inside with a crispy outside. And when topped with powdered sugar, syrup and whipped cream - even better!!!! Daniel said of the waffle recipes we've made, this was "one of the best waffles so far".



Yum yum! Perfect Sunday morning breakfast. (We even have several left over for freezing, re-toasting, and topping with ice cream!) :) Check out Lauren of Fried Pickles and Ice Cream for the recipe or buy the Sweet Melissa Baking Book. And take a look at the rest of the SMS bakers' posts as well!!

And if you're bored, take a look at www.Salt101.com. It's fun!

Great pics - your waffle looks terrific!! I wish I'd skipped the topping and gone with whipped cream like you :) My batter didn't rise either - I don't think it's supposed to. I was a big fan of these waffles too. I've already eaten all the ones I stuck in the freezer to toast another day...

So happy you liked them..they look wonderful. Your pokadot plate is super cute!
The topping was so sweet I think the whipped cream is a much better choice!

yes, I agree. Finals time sucks, but at least we're almost all done.

The waffles look yummy! These were a big hit in my house too. I was surprised when I looked at my batter this morning too, I guess it doesn't rise. Good luck with all your finals!

That's great that you went for this recipe. I know in the past you had some issues with yeast but by the looks of the recipe turned out great!

My batter did rise over night (not dramatically)-but it sounds like it didn't matter for the taste of yours. Looks great!

Kiki said...

Yum, waffles. My carb of choice. I might try this on Thanksgiving morning- I want something simple and delicious that doesn't take a lot of prep time.
