My family is basically obsessed with breakfast foods. We eat them breakfast, lunch and dinner, and sort of consider ourselves connoisseurs. Now, let me say, these are the BEST. WAFFLES. EVER.  They have amazing flavor, nice and crisp on the outside with a light and fluffy interior, these overnight waffles can’t be beat! Although the batter sits overnight, they are just as easy to throw together as normal waffles and in the morning you will be so grateful you took the time the night before!

We love mixed berries and syrup on top of our waffles! You can use whatever berries you have on hand, and it will totally take your waffles to the next level!

    These are amazing. but beware, regular waffles will be lost forever

      Jessica

      I totally agree! We never make regular waffles anymore!

    A great fruit topping is fresh sliced peaches heated up in real maple syrup and spooned over the top. You can top with a few candied pecans and a dollop of real sweetened whipped cream, YUM!

    if left out over night will the milk spoil??

      Jessica

      So sorry I should have specified- you let it sit overnight in the fridge!

    Is there an error in the recipe? I’ve attempted these twice now and they turn out nothing like the photo. In the morning the batter is foamy on top and runny “whey” like underneath. After adding eggs and egg whites it is still too runny. This morning I drained off some of the “whey” and added flour…that helped some, I at least got a normal looking waffle.
    I’m thinking the recipe must have an error in the ratios. Perhaps the milk should be 1 or 1 1/2 instead of 2 cups?

      No! That’s so weird, I don’t know why that would be happening, but it always works for me and as you can see in the comments other people have tried it and loved it! :) Maybe it’s a difference in places we live or something. Who knows. Best of luck!

    Would I be able to save unused batter in the refrigerator for the next morning?

    YUM! I love breakfast foods and now that we have church at one o’clock, we have time for brunch on Sunday morning! Just about the only good thing I can think of about the late schedule with a toddler :)

    What if you want to do these for a Sunday dinner? Still make the night before? Can they sit out that much longer? Or just prepare in the morning and leave out all day…
