Great waffles!! I just served mine with butter and sprinkled on some powdered sugar, so good!! I made 1/2 of the amounts which was very easy to do and it made 6 waffles from my waffle iron. Thanks for sharing the recipe, nice change from the normal waffles. Congrats on your 2nd win of this year in the football pool!!

My kids loved something for breakfast when I served these waffles to them. They were happy as clams! I made a sweet cinnamon butter glaze to go over them. Yummy!
