Corn Fritter Waffles with Spicy Maple Syrup

My family used to vacation at a resort in Vermont that served corn fritters with maple syrup. Now when I serve these waffles for breakfast or supper, I'm transported back to those simple days of childhood. —Jennifer Beckman, Falls Church, Virginia

    These are excellent. I don't add the cayenne to my pure maple syrup though. A regular size can of corn (drained) works for the recipe too.
