It seems that every time I decide what I want to make for breakfast, it comes down to waffles.
But not any waffles. Yeasted waffles. Crispy, chewy, full of well-developed flavor.
Of course, this isn’t really an option when you want waffles right that second.
Enter: the overnight waffle.
Mix a batter up in a matter of 15 minutes, cover, and stick on the counter to rise overnight.
When you wake, you can fold in eggs and blueberry while the iron heats up and just like that, magical waffles are born.
It’s almost like they made themselves.
A few tips:
Use a large bowl to make your batter in – the dough is going to grow a LOT overnight and needs its space.
Let the blueberries sit on a paper towel before folding in so that the excess juices get moped up. This way they don’t make your waffles soggy and don’t streak the batter with color.
Add sugar pearls to the batter along with the blueberries for crunchy caramelized pockets once they’ve cooked up.

I love these photos so much!! Especially the huge stack of waffles!! Do you and your family eat the food you make for the blogs!? It paints such a cartoon picture in my head when I see a stack of like 12 pancakes or 7 waffles, topped with butter and syrup 🙂
Thank you Justin! Yes, we eat the food…or it gets pawned off on friends =)
What superb food photography and food styling. Your shots are so artistic. Thank you for another wonderful post.
That’s so kind, thank you Mairead!
great idea for prep for tonight for waffles for tomorrow, very helpful, nice tip too about sugar pearls for texture and soaking up extra blueberry moisture on paper towels, that works too, so thank you!
You’re welcome! Hope you get to try.
