When we were kids, my grandmother used to make this waffle recipe for us every time we would visit. I loved these waffles, but no matter which restaurants I visited I could never find any I liked as well. I recently bought a waffle iron, and my grandmother sent me the recipe. It tastes best, of course, with real maple syrup. Just a warning: this recipe must be started the night before. I've found, in my own experience, that the taste is stronger if you let it sit for 10-10.5 hours instead of, say, 7.5-8 hours. (I've tried it both ways.) We like it stronger. Note: Down below I included the overnight time under "cooking" since it is considered passive work time. The waffles do NOT cook for that long, of course! Enjoy!
