Each Sunday the Sweet Melissa Sundays blogging group bakes the same recipe from the “Sweet Melissa Baking Book”. This week’s choice is the raised waffles with a banana fosters topping. Our host blogger is Lauren at Fried Pickles and Ice Cream. The complete recipe is available at Lauren’s site. I must add that she was a real sport this week: she is expecting and baked goods no longer appeal! Thanks, Lauren for baking anyways!
The recipe is based on a classic from The Fanny Farmer Cookbook and I did make these many years ago. It was fun to redo the recipe. The results are light and airy and crisp. A winning combination for waffles.
You start with a very thin batter that includes yeast. The batter sits overnight and then some eggs and baking soda are added. All the ingredients are easily found.
I used my All Clad round waffle maker and it produced yummy, crisp waffles. I hate when waffles are soft and doughy; these were just right.
I started the batter before I went to work and baked them for dinner. Anytime would be right for these waffles. You could start Thanksgiving morning with these, hopefully no one would need anything until dinner!
Happy baking, Patty
