Raised Waffles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Maiya

I got this recipe off Epicurious.com. It is supposed to be from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook by Marion Cunningham. These are the best waffles I have ever had. They are incredibly light and airy. I like to eat them with maple syrup and whipped cream. Prep time DOES NOT include sitting overnight. Cook time is per waffle.

These were great, Fanny Farmer knew what she was talking about. I think that maybe the chef who gave you one star forgot to turn on the waffle iron. :)
