The recipe was cut in half and short grain brown rice subbed for plain white. Wasn't too sure about the optional caraway but I got used to it after a few bites. The waffles were Tasty Dish approved which is always a relief. Thanks for posting!

What an interesting waffle Sharon. It was really good. The waffles were crisp, tender, light and flavorful, very very filling, with a slight rice flavor. The syrup was dynamite, thick, spicy, sweet, tart and tangy. A perfect accompaniment to the waffles, they balanced each other perfectly. A repeat recipe for me. Thank you so much for sharing this unique treat.
