No-Rise Yeast Waffles

18 Dec

I made this up yesterday since I’ve been experimenting with super-quick yeast breads. I love the flavor and chew of yeast waffles. This accomplished that, with a delightful crust, in the amount of time it takes to make standard no-yeast waffles, and was so popular that a) Eva ate four waffles in one sitting and b) the kids practically demanded we make them again for breakfast today. Luckily, I taught them how, and they have declared they are going to make them every week. We’ll see how that works out.

1. In the mixer bowl with the paddle attachment, stir together:
1/2 cup very warm water
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp active dry yeast

2. Plug in the waffle maker.

3. In a glass bowl or measuring cup, melt
1/2 cup margarine
in the microwave for 30 seconds.

4. Pour the melted margarine into the mixer bowl. In the glass measuring cup, warm
2 cups almond milk or soymilk
in the microwave for one minute.

5. Pour the almond milk into the mixer bowl. Add in
1 Tbsp Ener-G egg replacer powder

6. Turn on the mixer to speed 4. Add in, one cup at a time,
3 cups flour

7. Continue mixing on speed 4 for 1-2 minutes more, until all of the lumps are gone.

To make waffles:
(use your waffle maker’s specific instructions, these are mine)
1. Spray the top and bottom of the waffle maker EACH TIME.
2. Pour 1/3 cup batter into each waffle mold. Close the lid.
3. Cook until the light goes off. Take the waffles out carefully, using a fork, because the waffle maker is very hot.
4. Put a new batch of waffles in. Don’t forget to lightly spray the waffle maker first!
