Why does the waffle batter have to rise for 24 hours?
Since we use a yeast dough for Belgian waffles, the little helpers need some time to work in the dough. Meanwhile, this rises and develops its typical yeasty aroma. In the refrigerator, the yeast works more slowly, which gives the yeast dough a more delicate flavor and does not become so acidic.
