My 13-year-old daughter and her friends asked for French toast at a sleepover, but we were out of bread. I used muffins instead, and they loved it. Double or triple this recipe for a holiday brunch. —Bonnie Geavaras-Bootz, Scottsdale, Arizona
The nutty whole wheat taste comes through in these delicious waffles. Crispy and light with a subtle orange flavor, they make an appealing breakfast or supper when served with sausage. Topped with your favorite fruit and whipped cream, they even make a satisfying dessert.

"MY AUNT made a mighty breakfast that revolved around 'The Big Pancake'. I always enjoyed watching as she poured the batter into her huge iron skillet, then baked the confection to perfection in the oven.
"The delicious result defied description! It was a sort of combination pancake, waffle and cruller.
"Sprinkled with powdered sugar and garnished with wedges of lemon, this crispy, golden-brown treat—which covered a dinner plate!—was as delightful to the eye as it was to the palate."
"WE GROW our own strawberries, so our table usually features an abundance of this fruit. We gather other favorite fruits at the store and blend them with our berries for a refreshing, colorful breakfast salad. I serve the dressing on the side, so people can take as much as they want."
This has become the brunch dish I'm known for here in Pearland. The recipe combines the favorite flavors of hearty, old-time country breakfasts with the ease of a modern, make-ahead dish. Try it—you'll enjoy it.
In our family, this special recipe is often served for our Christmas Day brunch. I was always looking for something unique to serve, and this rich, colorful dish certainly fills the bill. It tastes so good!
These waffles taste just as terrific as the original recipe—with only half the fat. In other words, dust off that waffle iron because these breakfast sensations are a wonderful way to start your day! Carol Burger - Phillips, Wisconsin
