Grandma B's Super Waffles

"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.

    I made this for PAC Fall 2008. We got about 20 5 inch square waffles, give or take with overflow and not putting enough on the griddle. My family was crazy for these. The kids raved and DH said he couldn't imagine waffles tasting any better than these. We only had two left over. I guess we have a keeper:)

    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.

    We really liked the taste of these waffles. I also doubled the recipe so I can freeze the extras.

    Awesome waffles! The directions are perfect and the waffles turned out crispy on the outside/soft on the inside - just how we like them! For the second batch, I added some cinnamon and that worked well, too. I used butter instead of margarine. Next time, I am going to try using canola oil to see if it works just as well. Thanks for a great breakfast! ~Made for the Aussie/NZ October Swap~

    This is my new favorite recipe for waffles. I'm definitely going to make these again. I tried it with sour milk, but will go out and get buttermilk for this next time. Also I used melted butter instead of margarine. Thanks for an awesome yummy recipe.
