This was my grandma's favorite waffle recipe. It has become a family favorite enjoyed on special occasions not only by her grandchildren but great-great grandchildren as well. The clipping is yellow with age clipped I suspect from the local daily paper many many years ago.

Gerry this is a great waffle recipe. Nice and crisp and tasty. Only thing I changed was to add a teaspoon of vanilla. My DH loves waffles so this will be a nice breakfast tomorrow. Thanks.

Excellent waffles, crispy outside but soft inside. They were gobbled up here and I will use this recipe often. So easy! I got 8 round waffles. This was made for Fall PAC 2009. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
