One thing you should know about me is that I LOVE red bean. Red bean buns, red bean shaved ice, red bean matcha latte, red bean rice cakes, red bean anything. One time I made a pot of red bean paste as filing for making stuffed brioche, and then I finished the entire pot in one day. IN ONE DAY. Nothing is left for those poor brioches. So, as a person with no self-control, I usually don’t keep any red bean in my house.
Last week, I was playing with my new Shaved Ice Machine (have you read my Strawberry Shaved Ice post?) and was desperately craving gold bingsoo, a Korean style red bean shaved ice I used to have all the time in Annandale, VA. So, guess what happened? I bought a three-pack Japanese sweetened red bean can on Amazon. Best purchase ever. I’m sugar high all week long, but #noregret.
I thought I would take a break from making shaved ice, and share with you my Mini Overnight Whole Wheat Yeasted Waffles. Of course, with red bean filling. Yeasted waffle can sound scary, but I promise you this is the easiest recipe to make in the world. You basically mix everything together to form a dough the night before. Put it in the fridge. When you wake up, the dough will be ready to be stuffed with some delicious red bean (or chocolate!).
Unlike making overnight cinnamon rolls or any yeasted bread, these mini waffles does not need a second proof. You don’t need to mess with the oven in the morning. All you need is a waffle iron and make waffles as usual. Bang. You have Mini Overnight Whole Wheat Yeasted Waffles with Red Bean Filling with no effort!
I usually make a big batch on a weekend morning, enjoy them warm and freeze the rest. So the next week, I can warm up these delicious Mini Yeasted Waffles in the toaster when I’m running short on time! These babies freeze very well. I really can’t tell any differences between freshly made ones with warmed up frozen ones.

Mini Overnight Yeasted Waffles with Red Bean Filling!
Yield: About 12 mini waffles
1. 150g (1 1/4 cups) whole wheat flour
2. 90g (3/4 cup) all-purpose flour
3. 2 large eggs
4. 50-60g (1/4 cup) milk
5. 20g (1 1/2 tbsp) sugar
6. 1/4 tsp kosher salt
7. 4g (1 1/4 tsp) instant/active dry yeast
8. Sweetened Red Beans (or any fillings you want)
1. The night before: In a medium mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients (except red beans) together to form a smooth dough. Cover with plastic wrap. Put into the fridge to prove overnight (6-8 hours).
2. The next morning, take the dough out of the fridge. It should be doubled in size. Divide the dough into 12 equal pieces and roll them into little balls. Cover with plastic wrap and let them rest for half 30 minutes.
3. Take one dough ball and flatten it on your palm. Place one tablespoon of sweetened red beans (or filing of your choice) in the centre of the flattened dough. Wrap the filing in the dough, pinching the ends and seam with your fingers. Repeat with the remaining dough.
4. Place two stuffed waffle doughs on your waffle iron. Make the waffles according to your waffle maker’s instructions, cooking until the waffles are golden-brown. Cooking time will vary with your waffle maker, but it is typically 4 to 6 minutes.
5. Repeat with the remaining dough. Eat while they’re still warm and store leftovers in the fridge. They can be kept refrigerated for up to a week or frozen for up to 3 months. Toast the waffles straight out of the freezer and they taste as good as freshly made ones!
OBSERVATIONS & Notes:
1. If you’re not a fan of red beans, try different filings! Chocolate, cinnamon sugar, cheese or even mini hot dogs are great choices. The mother dough recipe is almost perfect for any types of filing.
2. You can easily double (or triple, I won’t judge) the recipe and make a big batch. These waffles freeze so well and they’re whole wheat! Best healthy work/school day breakfast ever.
3. You don’t want to over stuff the waffle, or it will explode like a pufferfish.
