Our family enjoys all types of waffles, but these are their favorite. They're softer than traditional waffles and the combination of spices provides a unique flavor. I hope your family enjoys them as much as mine does!
When I found this recipe in a church cookbook early in my marriage, I was eager to try it. It was an immediate success and has been a family favorite ever since. I even serve these hearty waffles for a different kind of supper.
These fast-to-prepare waffles are perfect to whip up at the last minute, and the recipe can easily be doubled. I often made them when our six children were growing up. And now when they come back to visit, they always request them.
I like to serve these flavorful waffles when we have company because they add nice color to the table and look so elegant, yet they're so easy to prepare. Everyone raves about the unique rich vanilla sauce served over the warm waffles.
I pride myself on being a good cook who learned everything about baking and cooking from my very patient mother. Credit also goes to my father, who suffered through my many less-than-successful experiments!
Our grandkids visit for a week at a time during school breaks and summer vacations. This recipe gives our morning meals some variety and gets the kids to eat nutritious oatmeal.—Lee Hill-Nelson, Waco, Texas
