A few weeks ago, some generous friends invited me, along with some other friends, to their family's vacation home in the mountains near Kamas, Utah for a weekend retreat. We had a great time! Listening to general conference, talking and hanging out, and playing games. But one of the food highlights of the weekend was Sunday breakfast. My friend Heidi made waffles that were fabulous! We topped them with blueberries, sliced strawberries, sliced bananas, maple syrup, and whipped cream. It was like being in heaven! Here is Heidi's recipe:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 tablespoons sugar
2 cups milk
1 stick butter, melted and cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients and then whisk in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Cover and set aside overnight on the counter. Do NOT refrigerate.
In the morning, separate the two eggs. Stir the yolks into the batter. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form and then fold them into the mixture.
Cook in waffle iron at medium heat. Serve with your favorite waffle toppings--fresh berries, sliced bananas, maple syrup, and some whipped cream. Serves 4 to 5 people
