How to Make It
1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, swirling the pan, until lightly browned—it should smell nutty.
2. To make the batter, warm 1/2 cup milk in a small saucepan over low heat until it reaches about 105°F (just warm to the touch). Transfer to a large bowl and add the yeast. Set aside until foamy, about 5 minutes. Whisk 1/3 cup of the brown butter, reserving the rest for buttering the waffle iron. Whisk in the flour, sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and the remaining 2 cups milk. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise overnight at room temperature.
3. Preheat a waffle iron; brush with the reserved brown butter. Stir the eggs and baking soda into the batter. Spoon 1/3 cup batter into the waffle iron and cook until golden. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you make the rest. Top with whatever you like.
