How to make Fluffy Yeast-Raised Waffles | Cupcake Jemma

I got me a brand new waffle maker and this recipe is my favourite waffle recipe of all time. Given to me by my friend Johanna in Kentucky (in the video I said Kansas but this is because I’m an idiot but don’t let that put you off! LOL) These are perfect for breakfast and brunch!

Recipe –
350ml milk, warmed to be ‘hand-hot’
1 heaped tsp Dried active yeast
2 small free-range eggs, separated
60g caster sugar
85g melted unsalted butter
300g plain flour
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

    you are really a very sweet person!

  11. peter zebot says:

    Nice result but it's totally pointless doing yeast waffles. Baking powder yields similar results and is much quicker, which let's face it, what waffles are meant for. I pity the ppl who make waffles this way. Waste of viable yeast as well.

  12. Hassina Tokhi says:

    Can you tell us how many cups

  13. Ruth Salinas says:

    Anyone who has tried this recipe, are these crispy waffles on the outside?

  14. Mama Mia says:

    I am selling rolled ice cream with waffle, and this is Best recipe ive ever tried so far.
    But, can i use 1tsp baking powder instead?
    Because in 24 hr it resulting sour taste cause of yeast activity.

  15. MrFlyTWA says:

    You can tell when waffles are down when the steam tapers off they should be done. If you wait long enough you shouldn't have to whip egg whites. The yeast will do the work for you in the batter.

  16. Joëlle says:

    We just had those waffles for brunch, they were lovely! Finally a recipe with the fluffy, moist inside that I love so much about waffles🖤

  32. BeccaCosmetics ChrissyTeigen says:

    They look so good.


    This is a pretty old video now but do we think overnight in the fridge is too long to let it rise if I want to make the batter the night before?
