Have you heard of the Cronut, the croissant-doughnut hybrid? Well, these yeasted waffles are so light and airy, I dub them the “Craffle.” They have a very distinct yeast flavor due to the fact that the batter rests (at room temperature!) overnight. But don’t let that scare you! I’ve made them several times and we haven’t been poisoned yet.
This is a recipe that has been making the rounds on the internet for a while. It’s creator is Marion Cunningham, but not the Marion Cunningham you’re thinking of. No, she’s not the feisty wife to Howard or loving mother to Richie and Joanie. That’s a different Marion Cunningham. This Marion Cunningham was a very well-known and prolific cookbook author. I’ve made a few of her other recipes recently and they are always good.
