      Holy cow I love anything with cornmeal! These were definitely no exception. I divided this recipe in 6ths and still ended up with more than three waffles. As Paula said, the mush cooked incredibly fast, in fact no more than a couple of minutes. The color of the waffles is beautiful with a taste to match. Thanks, Molly!

      These were made for Christmas Eve brunch. They are crispy on the outside with a nice chewy texture inside. The mush was cooked in less than the 10 minutes mentioned in the recipe. The mush was quick cooled by placing in an ice bath for a few minutes. Also, the ingredients list has butter but the directions only mention shortening. I used the shortening. I made only half a recipe on my Belgian waffle maker with a yield of 8 delicious waffles. The waffles were garnished with frozen strawberries and warm maple syrup.
