Waffles....waffles...waffles....I can't think of a better way to start off a good weekend then making homemade waffles fresh out of the kitchen. These waffles are not as sweet as others we have tried in the past. At first, I didn't know if that was a good thing or a bad thing. However, we found out quick that it definitely was a good thing. Once you add fresh fruit, syrup, and butter to them, it's like they automatically came to life with yummy sweetness.
The original recipe calls for milk, however I decided to substitute buttermilk to see what would happen. And as buttermilk does with most things, it added a really nice texture and flavor to it. I also decided to separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until they were stiff (like you would if you were making a meringue). There is still more tweaking to do with the recipe, as I am completely convinced that if I find the right amount of cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg...it will just burst with more flavor then we could ever dream of. For now though, I will share what I have with y'all ;) Oh...and another bonus to this recipe, the waffles are freezable ;)
