We’ve been making these brown butter overnight waffles for the past six years now and they never disappoint! I remember having them for the first time in a cabin in Tahoe with my family the day after Thanksgiving.

They were the best waffles I had ever had and the best homemade waffle recipe. We’ve been making them ever since. It’s a yeast waffle batter so the batter rises overnight, creating crispy, chewy waffles.

The brown butter adds so much flavor to the batter as well. If you’re making these for guests check out our waffle bar here. I also make them for Christmas too!

These waffles are made with yeast, but they won’t be super fluffy when they’re done. They’re light and airy, crispy on the outside with a buttery flavor.

Ingredients to Make this Waffle Recipe

You’ll need a waffle maker to make homemade waffles. We use this All-Clad one and really love it. You can use a round or square waffle maker.

You’ll need a small skillet to brown the butter.

A medium mixing bowl to allow the dough to rise overnight.
