This is one of those recipes that it seems like I have made forever. It may have been mothers but most likely grandma's. They are a tender waffle that lends themselves to both size waffle makers. Vanilla may be omitted but we love it in the waffles. For a change I sometimes add 1/2 cup of chopped pecans to batter. These are good with hot syrup and butter and heaven with whipped cream and strawberries.
