"My grandma always said these were the best waffles ever, and I have to agree! A family favourite that is a must make when we gather for special weekends. These awesome tasting waffles are crisp on the outside, light, moist and tender in the inside and so easy to make. Served with a variety of toppings our favourite being strawberries and whipped cream."

Wow, lovely waffles Gerry. Thank you to your grandma for sharing this wonderful recipe. I made these for my sil and I. We both loved them, great flavor and a wonderful texture. What a perfect brunch, we garnished with fresh blackberries, whipping cream and a little maple syrup. Made for Alphabet Tag 2020. ♥
