Spiced Fruit and Nut Waffles

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Toni in Colorado

A different waffle that I like to serve company. The recipe says to cook the raisins in boiling water for 5 minutes, then drain and chop. I don't do this. I just add the raisins. The recipe also says to use cake flour. You can have these for breakfast or serve them as a dessert with ice cream or with whipped cream. I found this recipe in the High Altitude Cookbook and tried this recipe for the first time in 1989. If you know company is coming ahead of time, you can mix the dry ingredients early; then all you have to do is add the wet ingredients.

Made for breakfast yesterday for the 2 of us & had enough for today, as well! I'm a big raisin fan & absolutely loved the taste of these breakfast treats, especially when I used toasted pecans! Another time & these will definitely be for dessert with a warm raisin sauce! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Recipenapped & made in the Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe Swap 23]
