Cooking waffles!

Used my Griswold cast iron waffle iron today for the second time (first time successfully.) the waffles came out great. I snagged this somewhere (lost website) and adapted it to here. 



* 2 cups milk
* 1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast (2 1/2 teaspoons)
* 1/2 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
* 1/2 cup butter, melted
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon white sugar
* 3 cups sifted unbleached all-purpose flour
* 2 eggs, slightly beaten (three eggs here)
* 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. (I melted the butter with the milk, and put the sugar in with the warm water and yeast)

2. In a large bowl, combine milk, yeast mixture, butter, salt, sugar and flour. Mix thoroughly with rotary or electric mixer until batter is smooth. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight.

3. The next morning, stir beaten eggs and baking soda into the batter; beat well.

4. Spray preheated waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray. Pour mix onto hot waffle iron. Cook until golden brown. (I most certainly did not use a cooking spray. I brushed some olive oil on. )

they came out really well, I think part of the lack of sticking may have been the amount of butter in the mix. I will be experimenting with using less butter next time…even for me, that is a LOT of butter.)
