Overnight Waffles

Every year for Valentine's Day we make waffles covered with strawberries and whipped cream. These are the most un-nutritious waffles ever but they are really, really good. They are great to make for company mornings as you do the work the night before, clean everything up and in the morning just pull out the batter and start cooking.

Makes 8 waffles

1 3/4 c milk (I use skim as the whole the recipe calls for is just more than I can justify!)
8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter
2 c flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 1.2 tsp instant yeast
1 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Heat the butter and milk on low on the stove or in the microwave till butter is melted and then let cool till warm. Whisk in all the other ingredients. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 12-24 hours. Cook on waffle iron.

I love this recipe! We use it for special occasion breakfasts. Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and I'm making some in our heart shaped waffle iron. Thanks for sharing!
