Donut-Glazed Yeasted Waffles


Have you ever tried Donut-Glazed Yeasted Waffles? Well now is a better time than any and we have the simplest recipe for you! Soft and crispy, perfectly golden waffles made with yeast to help your waffles rise to the occasion and turn out extra puffy and delicious. The donut glaze – made from butter, whole milk, powdered sugar and vanilla, not only finishes the waffles with a glossy and shiny touch, it also adds that extra bit of sweetness that I personally love and something different to the usual sticky syrup or honey. 

To make Donut-Glazed Yeasted Waffles, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Donut-Glazed Yeasted Waffles


Activate yeast


In a large mixing bowl of a stand mixer, pour 1½ cups of warm milk and sprinkle 1 package of yeast evenly over top. Set aside for 5 minutes to activate.


Combine dry ingredients


In a clean bowl, combine 2½ cups of all-purpose flour with 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of sugar.


Add to wet ingredients


Add the dry ingredients mixture to the bowl of wet ingredients along with ½ cup of melted butter. Whisk to combine well with no lumps.




Cover the bowl with some plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 2 hours to overnight. Remove the bowl from the fridge an hour before cooking.


Prepare waffle maker


Preheat the waffle iron maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.


Prepare egg yolks


Whisk 3 separated egg yolks with ½ teaspoon of baking soda then pour into the dough mixture and gently stir until mostly combined.


Prepare egg whites


In a clean, large bowl of the stand mixer, beat 3 separated egg whites on medium-high speed until stiff and medium-soft peaks show. Add half of the beaten whites to the dough mixture and fold in then add the remaining half of egg whites. Fold again until evenly combined with no lumps.


Cook waffles


Lightly spray the hot waffle iron with cooking spray, as needed then add about 1 cup of the batter, close the iron and cook for about 3 minutes and 45 seconds until golden brown. Remove and cool on a wire rack while repeating with remaining to make about 5 waffles.


Prepare glaze


In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine ¼ cup of butter and 2 tablespoons of whole milk. Cook, stirring a few times, until the butter is completely melted then add 1 cup of sifted, powdered sugar. Simmer for 1 minute then remove from the heat before stirring in the seeds from ½ a vanilla bean.


Dip waffles


Break the cooled waffles into quarters then dip one side into the glaze. Quickly lift, allowing any excess to drip off into the saucepan and place on the cooling rack. Repeat with remaining cooled waffles.



Serve immediately at room temperature!
